    I have for a long time been trying to find automatic air release valves, something that works on this principle, but till today have not been able to find any.

    something like this: Click image for larger version.

    Looks to be the right solution for the job at hand, but have not been able to find anything remotely similar. Looks a bit more robust and will be able to fill the tanks from the front without the hassle of manually blocking the breathers.

    Good day, I need to sort out the rear door Hinge as the spare wheel causes the door to sag.

    My thinking is to put a flatbar on the inside of the door, but I'm not to sure it will solve the problem.

    Any advice?

    I very much doubt it will help. It seems a localized issue around the hinge from the photos. I'd suggest a proper hinges instead of that POS Conqueror uses for hinges. Look at truck body builder suppliers like McNaughtons.

    Any one installed a BunduAwn on their Commander? I am looking at a 270, but the Conqueror one is very expensive thus searching for potential alternatives. I see the BunduAwn videos for the Aus Commander.

    Just busy with my caravan mover install on the Companion.

    Fits like it was made for it, 300mm clearance. Movers are removable (just waiting for the last part from an engineering works) with just a pin and an Anderson plug connector.

    Will post a video when its working

    I tow my Companion with a thirsty Rubicon V6 3.6 petrol and at 110 with a strong head/cross wind I get about 6km/pl (17 to 18 litres 100). So you should be getting better than me

    Hi Ubbo
    That is a great idea, i didn't know that movers can be fitted to the companion!

    Would you mind giving me info on this, and the cost, as this is something I would like to add as well.

    thanks!

    Hi Ubbu

    Please share more info with regards to the movers. I wanted to do the same with my Commander and install Ewiks. But they do not cater for the Commander as yet. Want to make it removable as well.

    That consumption figure is normal.

    I concur, have towed with 2.0L Diesel, 3.0L Diesel, 2.2 petrol and they all gave the same consumption at the same speed - you need X amount of energy to overcome the wind resistance at the given load.

    I have a Companion 2B and tow it with 3.2 Ranger and generally stick to 110km/hr. This gives me around 8 to 8.5 lt/100 . Increasing the speed makes a huge difference on the fuel consumption as well as the stress level. Lekker chilled in the car = acceptable fuel consumption.

    8-8.5L/100 = 11.7 - 12.5 km/l. It must have been a very long down hill.

    Fearless gets 13.3l/100km when towing Gearless (2006 Conquest) - that's 7.50km/l.
    That's average. I get less if it's a easier route, less traffic & we're going for a short stay - not loaded for 4 or 5 days

    The major difference that I can remember, is that the I had a nosecone without slider for the fridge, and you have to drop the fridge into the cone. On the II, the fridge slides out proper, and is more readily accessible right next to the slide-out kitchen. That was our major reason for going for the II rather than the I.

    Other differences as well, but I don't remember now.

    Hi Conqueror fans

    I please need some advice. I have a 2007 commander and I have noticed a knocking noise onone of the swing arms if the van is vigorously swayed...by hand.
    One of the bolts running down the centre of the coil spring had plenty play and was protruding below the swing arm. It was also missing a washer and the brace to secure the bolt was snapped. I replaced this all and tightened the bolt.
    All bushes look fine and the Gabriel safaris show no obvious sign of fatigue. Still a slight knock.

    My question now is how tight should I make that bolt under the swing arm that secures the coil? Surely the more I tighten the less travel the arm will have as I will be compressing the coil? Or am I mistaken?

    I have attached an image of the bolt for clarity.

    Any advise please.
