Isolator issues en vacances
We're having a lovely time just south of Bordeaux. In France. Baking hot. What better time to swap out that Isolator which I am sure is causing me some issues? As my wife said to me 'essential maintenance only while on holiday'. What does she know I think, let's just crack on! Anyhow, given that I didn't have a full toolkit with me this was always going to be a folly venture.....and so it was, once I realised (having fitted the new isolator) that the gauge of the posts was different so the existing cables didn't fit. I refitted the old one again, sheared off the last post, then put the new one back again and (having borrowed a drill from the campsite) drilled out the crimp ends and then realised that one of the wires which connected to the third post down (A) contained a diode DII 5404. Anyhow, with the old Isolator now kaput and the new one installed, I did find that one long standing issue has been resolved. My worry is whether I need to worry about the 1000 mile drive back to England if that diode isn't part of the wiring setup and connections to the A terminal ( third post down).
For what it's worth, I thought the diodes were all within the Isolator, not in the wiring!
Any thoughts guys, should I be concerned?
Think outside the box
