    Re: How long will fridge run on dual battery

    My best advise is to take any calculation result you get and subtract at least 30% for a safety margin.
    Whenever you go over that margin, accept you are on borrowed time.

    Re: Guys, PLEASE!!! ALWAYS 4x4 on gravel

    Corrugations are caused by a combination of factors.
    Driving 4*4 or 2*4 is not one of them.
    Might as well use 2SO in your diesel if you believe that.
