Rebuilding Gresley Buffet 644 - Chapter 26

Kitchen wiring. The original fridge compressor was removed from its container beneath the solebar. The new (mains) fridge to be fitted had an integral compressor so the original was surplus to requirements. The compressor housing provided an excellent site for the inverters, charger and associated switchgear as the housing was reasonably weatherproof but adequately ventilated. Perfect! Even had a lamp socket and switch in it to aid maintenance. Dave Hall was the main force behind getting all the wiring in place, making the connections, threading through wires etc.
