    Fortuner Re: Spotlight switch

    Measure up your switch hole ie LxBxH then give who ever you buying from a call. I bought spot switches from a place called Allmans in East London, lumo product for my old Isuzu.

    Just watched an Ozzy video on installing a dual battery system. They say crimping a lug prevents breaking off of the wire due to vibrations. They crimped a lug then added a bit of solder at front of...

  11. Re: Why do LED festoon bulbs still glow when switched off?

    Imho it's a leakage current or reverse current flowing in the negative wires that triggers the Led to glow. You can insert a resistor in series and it will stop the glow. The old globes had a...

    Re: National Luna 12v Split Charger System

    Why have a 100A fuse feeding solinoid input and 100 Amp fuse feeding Auxiliary battery. Surly one 100Amp fuse is enough as both are in series to auxiliary battery.???

    Re: National Luna 12v Split Charger System

    So is my thought correct. You can wire the solinoid through a switch so that you can start charging the auxiliary battery later on into the journey ie giving time for the crank battery to fully...

    Re: National Luna 12v Split Charger System

    Very informative. So no rushing out to buy a DC-DC if not required. Infact imho a larger gauge wire off a solinoid is basically all you need or am I wrong again.

    Not the expert but a lot of people use these to charge prim and auxiliary batteries. That one you posted is just fancier because it has a monitor. [emoji16].

    OK just phoned the owners son. They make a 35ltr version but not as thick as the bigger box. I will try get out there next week and gets some picts.
  26. Re: Romer cooler build quality - Does your Romer look like this?

    Will do. I have the half size as well, think it's the 40ltr. Basically a 500ml coke bottle standing up right fits in there.

    I have also had my two for roughly same period. Still perfect.
  28. Re: Romer cooler build quality - Does your Romer look like this?

    They did have a bad batch and did replacements. I'm guessing the QA chap does not work there anymore as the factory is here in Dimbaza close to where I live in KWT.

    Fill up vehicle, go home and syphon fuel into containers. Go to different fuel stations and repeat process.
