Re: Cool Box needs repair

Hmm, the 2 systems are usually completely separate, but may have a common thermostat. On 220 Volts it will be using the compressor, and on 12 Volts a "Peltier effect" device. As shown on those specs, the 12 Volt cycle is not very efficient, especially with a high ambient temperature. Does it have a ...

Re: Cool Box needs repair

Have you used it yourself previously? If so, what supply was it on? It could be as simple as an internal fuse, or a resettable thermal cut out device. Should not be too hard to track down the fault. Everthing about it on the internet is in Dutch / Skandi, so not much help if you cannot read it. edit...

Re: Claiming the 15% holding tax back from fixed term bank accounts

Just as a point of interest, if the money is in a savings account rather than a fixed term, there is 20,000 Baht of tax free interest. At the piddling amount of interest paid by Thai banks if you had enough money to invest to exceed 20K Baht interest, I know for one that it would not put it in a sa...

Re: No parking here

There is much more to this than just the parking. If the reporting is correct it has been going on for years, and for me it is just another indication of the "me first" attitude all too often shown in this country. It is in the same category that allows kids to ride motorbikes, usually on the wrong ...
