    A quick question for the more experienced....

    I ordered the van with the solar panels, will I still require a cable and BH plug at rear of the bakkie to charge batteries while driving? I am hoping not as I run a dual battery in the bakkie already and Iím not keen on pulling through a heavier second cable for the BL.

    Iím assuming that with a bit of sun the batteries will remain charged off the solar panels.
    Not really necessary. The panels charge perfectly fine while driving. I have one but hardly ever use it. The only time it is good to have is if you have a few cloudy days or a spot with not enough sun. You can then give your batteries some help while driving from one spot to the next.

    RianH,
    What size solar panels? One or two batteries in BL?
    Type of controller and regulator?

    With my new Victron system, the 120W panel on the roof keeps both 102Ah batteries charged.

    Happy camping!

Ek het die handle afgeskroef en 'n no. 10 boudjie opgebraai. Ek kon toe die met die no. 10 socket op my cordless skroewedraaier die grinder draai.

    My opgewondenheid was van korte duur want die cordless skroewedraaier was maande laas gecharge en het net so paar draaie gegee.... Ek sal hom goed charge want daar is ook nie krag by die volgende kamp oor 2 weke nie. As dit goed werk gaan ek sommer die elektiese koffie grinder van nou af by die huis los...
    Genius! Ek het die grinder gekry en sal 'n 10mm bout opsit voor ons volgende trip. In my toolbox is 'n ou boor waarvan die battery opgepak het en ek toe 'n Hella plug opgesit het. Dit sal great werk hiervoor.

    Dankie!

    Ek het intussen lekker dik waster ook gekry om onder die boutjie te sit sodat daar nie te veel druk op daai plaatjie is met die draai slag nie. Jy moet kyk dat daai boor lekker stadig draai. Ek dink nie te veel spoed gaan lekker werk met die grinder nie. Daai cordless skroewedraaier loop die regte spoed...

    Die allu boks kom nou standaard saam en ek sien die ligte is ook nou vervang met die "touch button" weergawe.

    So.... my Xplorer is in vir evaluasie. Wat kom terug? My Xplorer of #1384?

    Nog 'n stupid vragie - as die awning oop is, hoe "seel" hy agter teen die karavaan vir as dit reen?

    Tweede vraag - het iemand al 'n "extension" op die tent gesit voor vir ekstra skaduwee?

    There is a loose weather strip that slide into the extrusion above the door with Velcro on opposite side attaching to the awning to seal the area. My awning has a loose extension with an additional three poles which the previous owner had made up but I have not used it since purchasing the BL a year ago.

    Solar Problems
    I took delivery of my Boskriek 1164 with the Bush Lapa solar system towards the end of January this year. The regulator is faulty from day one although Centurion branch never identified the fault. After speaking to JC at the factory he advised that I immediately replace the regulator before I destroy the battery but also suggested that I use the Viktron MPPT if I wanted to be truly happy the installation this of course attracts additional cost even with the credit offered under warranty for the original fitted product.
    My challenge is why not fit a little more quality up front as it appears the factory fitted regulator is not up to standard especially considering the solar option from Bush Lapa is not cheap.
