QHow do you remove sunscreen residue which we have managed to get on the cabin paintwork? It has left white stains which appear to be as difficult to remove as silicone. Would T-Cut work?
website TONY REPLIES... Try that and if it doesn’t work then try a fine rubbing compound or cutting paste. For price reasons, you may be best off with an ‘own brand’. Take care and be gentle because coach paint is far softer than car paint, so do not abrade all the paint away to the primer.
ATo be sure, you need to direct that question to the makers, importers or distributors. However, a few comments that assume they are flooded lead acid cells.
Not so many years ago, the make-up of the lead alloy used in many battery plates changed so calcium is now used in pace of antinomy. This reduced the amount of gassing so that, together with a larger volume of ‘excess’ acid, means the need to topup is reduced to such an extent that the battery is likely to die of old age before topping-up is needed. That is provided the maximum charging voltage is
Anot exceeded. The downside is that when a battery starts to fail, one or two cells will often start to short circuit internally and those cells start to gas more. The easiest way most boaters identify a developing problem is when they find some dry cells.
If you do not check now and again, you will not know until you get a rotten egg smell and a failed battery. By then there is some danger of a cell exploding, especially if the battery is left on charge unattended.
Check the cells at least once a year and more frequently if you have an advanced charge controller. You should also check if there is any sign of the ends of the battery bowing out or they are emitting a smell.
