    HCDP use to make these panels for Echo. But is seems they moved away and installed a copy of that panel lately, not as good. Or at least in mine is that copy.

    Re: Help me - Alternative to 265/70/16 Size??

    Ja 285 is breer (+-285mm). 235/85 is amper n marie biscuit. 255/85 is net bietjie smaller en heelwat dieper profiel. Hang af hoekom jy dit will doen. Ek sou net n 265/75 opsit.

  16. Re: First fridge/freezer - Help me make the right decision please

    NL is fine. My choice after the engel. Max currents I think is 5 amps, or 60 Watt. 50 - 60 l is fine, but a 90l is much better.

    Distances seems fine.

    Personally I would cut out some camps, and stay longer other camps and explore the area over 3 days for example, but depends what is you object.

    Re: Prado Navigation (useless)

    For towing its better to lock it in fourth, then the speed control works better.
