  1. A twitter quote "So you have diverted the entire M20 through a set of temporary traffic lights on the A20. Please tell me you didn’t knowingly do this? Sellindge to Ashford is horrendous." Time to sack the Kent councilors.
  2. I'd assumed 8pm to 6 am on each night, which is what TE seems to say, not 8pm frid to 6 am monday, which would mean closed all weekend, i.e. though the day as well. Sat 10am, I can see on the traffic cameras that the M20 is closed right now at J11 area. So the Paper was correct and the Traffic England was wrong or misleading in its future closures message. Looks like I will be booking a ferry instead of trying the tunnel for the first time!

  4. For September, I still only see night time workings (8 till 6) on the Traffic England website. Any one with local knowledge?
  5. Buy what about the frequency and waveform, not so easy to monitor and just as bad for electronics.
  6. Similar thread on the go to which I replied: There does seem to be some general confusion re. dipped headlights. Generally in the past I have used stickers, or even black tape, some cars have adjustment levers under the bonnet, on on my Mitsubishi Outlander with LEDs dipped headlights the owners manual says: When entering a country in which vehicles are driven on the opposite side of the road to the country in which your vehicles is supplied, necessary measures have to be taken to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic. However, headlamps on this vehicle do not need any adjustment. A Sticker would be impossible any way as there are two dipped LED element on either side. I think it depends up on how the beam dips, i.e asymmetrical (a beam kick up on the left) or flat. You rarely see a car from Europe with sticker as I believe they dip flat.
  7. This will effect me, however there seems to be a difference in what Kent live says and Traffic England. One says closed all day, one says only between 8pm and 6am, i.e. overnight. Example from Traffic England map, other dates and locations on the M20 are also referred to: Location The M20 westbound between junctions J9 and J6 Reason Roadworks are planned Status Pending Schedule Expect disruption everyday between 20:00 and 06:00 from 15 August 2019 to 17 August 2019 Lanes Closed I can easily use the route from Darford crossing to Folkston via Dover, but may be thousands of others will do so also. Watching with interest!
  8. Useful document. There does seem to be some general confusion re. dipped headlights. Generally in the past I have used stickers, or even black tape, some cars have adjustment levers under the bonnet, on on my Mitsubishi Outlander with LEDs dipped headlights the owners manual says: When entering a country in which vehicles are driven on the opposite side of the road to the country in which your vehicles is supplied, necessary measures have to be taken to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic.

  9. Thanks, I wouldn't have thought of that. Grand kids might not be so keen though!
  10. We have used for the last 11 years ELSIL (by Elsan)( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008ESEI4O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) For general bug precautions, then at the end of the years a good dose of Milton in the aquarolls, but NOT in the van's pipework / heater. Importantly, Elsil has no taste so it does not ruin the tea. We spend many weeks a year on a Scottish site whose water supply is from a spring fed hill lochen which is supposedly filtered and UV cleaned. It still looks peaty but with the above approach we have had no problems.
  11. Me too some years ago, they seem very unhygienic. However I did discover a problem on my recent trip, when arriving on site having to wait ages for the pump to finish priming. Discovered that the empty cartridge was floating, don't know why I didn't notice this before. What do you use as a weight baring in mine that it needs to be drinking safe? I think that the point is that they make money for the dealers!
  12. Do they cope with Tyron bands?
  13. Any more comments on the PIN number and if possible to change it?
