• Just back from a very snowy and icy week up in Northumberland.

    The truck performed well but after one very cold night in the hills and snow (down to -10 Deg C) It fluffed a bit on startup. It was nothing serious and within seconds the truck was idling normally but it made me think about reliable startup in even colder temperatures.

    And so, I'm currently thinking of trying to recommision the standard-fit Start Pilot system - or working out a way to feed the air filter housing / intake manifold with blown hot air from our hab-box heater(s).

Tweaks and fixes are an ongoing part of the project. This series of pages form a blog - of sorts - and is intended to give a flavour of the day-to-day realities of living with the truck as issues crop up and tweaks and fixes progress. Many of the posts eventually end up getting written up properly and included in the main body of the Trip Truck site; so if you think you have read any of the older posts somewhere else, you almost certainly have.
