Re: Cool Box needs repair

The model number is KB-7345 (39 litres) very similar to model number KB-7645 (41 litres) shown in your link.

It was purchased in the Netherlands and used quite frequently but not in the past 4 years.

Thanks for all the advice.

Re: Cool Box needs repair

It's a Portacool 45 by Tristar.

No sign of life at all when plugged in.

Here's a couple of pics

Cool Box needs repair

I have a cool box that can plug into 220/12v.

It hasn't been used for a few years and isn't working.

Any recommendations where to get the box back up and running would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Smoking ex-pats

I have tried countless times to quit over the past 50 years. The desire of many smokers to quit over a prolonged period is evidenced by their numerous failed attempts. I can only speak from personal experience but this is the step by step procedure that I used to succesfully quit the habit permanen...

Re: Smoking ex-pats

I started smoking when I was 13 and still smoke. Can't you understand that smoking is not only an addiction (for some it is) but it's also a pleasure. This may be the most deeply ingrained of all rationalizations associated with smoking as it has a solid basis in the following flawed denial logic. ...

Re: Investment Rates

johnjar, I did the same thing. I knew that I didn't know enough to be in the market and couldn't afford the learning curve. I found a wonderful FA and I've been retired and living off a modest investment for 13 yrs. and expect it to carry me through to the end with enough left to support my wife un...

Drain flies in the bathroom

We have drain flies in one of our bathrooms in a new house. Despite extensive investigation (masking all possible inlets etc) we cannot be sure where the nest is and how the flies get into the bathroom after hatching. Once inside the bathroom, the flies are attracted to light where they congregate o...

Re: Tv providers in Hua Hin

There seems to be an inordinate number of these TV boxes on the market at the moment. Does any one have a definitive list with pros and cons?

Re: Where my kids can get smimming lesson ?

1200 is for one on one for 1 hour which is too long to keep the kids attention.

We started with 2 months private lessons once a week before joining a group.

Agree not cheap but the results are there.

You can always stop when the child is proficient.

Other option is to look for a Thai teacher.

Re: Where my kids can get smimming lesson ?

Give Mat a call.

Many families trust Mat with their kids swimming lessons.

We have for the past 2 years.

Re: Wild Boar in the Suburbs

It's not uncommon for a family of boar to be attached to a temple and become domesticated (to a degree).

There is a family attached to the temple at the end of Soi 116.

One of the males frequently visits a nearby house and is quite tame.
