    Re: Camping table

    I had (have) a roll up, it's horrible. Rickety and weak, it's a good thing it rolls up small so it takes up less space in my garage. It's honestly useless.

    Just bought a R499 MDF top table, folds...

    Re: 3rd bridge & 4th bridge Botswana.

    Then 10amp will be fine, since if you can charge batteries on mains then you can also run the fridge on mains. Your only issue is travel time, then fit a cable to charge the spare battery via the...

    Nothing is going to handle water - make sure it's completely waterproof in a halyester housing of some sort.

    You need to balance charge input (100w - 7a max) , charge efficiency (PWM vs MPPT),...

    Do some homework and figure out what you need for your overlanding. No question the Fortuner has less space for customisation than the DCs, you've got to figure out what you need to take with you....

    Re: Code EB drivers test

    I actually can't remember what I do, I'd have to actually do it to see. Instinctively it feels like it's too fast. If that's the case though, put it in low range and inch back with the clutch out.

    Re: Heavy trucks avoid tolls

    Only half off topic, maybe Estée can correct me, but I've been told that the majority of the damage to our roads from trucks is simple overloading.

    Re: NL 90 not cooling on 12 volt

    I don't think it would run at all if the fuse was blown. If the extractor fan was shot then the compressor runs for a short while then cuts off, starts again when it cools, then cuts. While it's...

    Why does it have to be so precise. I've built a rack setup, it's way smaller than the aperture of the door that you need to get the rack system through, so a few centimeters here and there won't make...
