  1. Re: Estate agent who's first words won't be sole mandate, PTA east.

    It's not an estate agent problem, it's a pretoria problem. Lots of lazy people. Had the same with a louver patio supplier, they are 425m from my house. Was told to measure the area, phone them back...

    Re: Buying new batteries

    I know it sounds off, as the draw remains the same, but I did a test with a 105, and it's almost as if the agm handles the load better.

    Re: Buying new batteries

    The alarm system and beams should have their own little 12v battery, usually like a 7amp? My elec fence has it's own 12v, and so does the alarm. They are designed that way to keep the alarm on even...

    Re: Most "Comfortable" family road vehicle?

    My dad has a Sorento, the amount of space to pack stuff is crazy. And that 2.2 Crdi has some pretty good get up and go, and it's very frugal. From Jbay to JHB he usually averages 7.5l/100km

    Re: Double Cabs - How Capable is Capable??

    It's hard to look past the super select gearbox. I'm not being biased.

    I reckon any 4x4 DC needs LR and DL.

    If it's only a couple of lights and entertainment (tv, wifi, soundbar etc) - then purchasing 4 x 105 is overkill.

    Yeah I disagree. I see car sales as walk in business. I don't make an appointment to see my butcher. If you want a test drive, yes then make a booking.

    Re: Solar Experts please help

    Thanks. I will leave parallel then.

    It's my understanding that a 105ah battery should not get more than 10amp?

    So will my 2 x 95w be too much seeing the controller is 20amo?
