  2. Re: Dinokeng - Fed-up with party music at weekends

    Been to Almega a couple of times and the Hamanskraal music wasn't a problem. I've read at certain places in Dinokeng the lights can also be a problem.
    One evening at Almega a group of campers played...

    Re: Afrispoor Cheetah

    In case anyone ever doubted the BunduAwn.

    Re: National Luna 90L Twin Fault ID Issues

    The 13.69v you measured at the fridge plug tells me it's not necessarily the batteries, do you have any way to measure the battery voltage while the compressor of the fridge is running to see by how...

    I once sat on a Helinox, one day I'm going to buy myself one of those. Expensive yes, but super light, super compact and remarkably comfortable. Quite a while ago someone on the forum imported them...

    Re: Bush Lapa or Afrispoor - HELP!!!!!

    Look at lithium ion LiFeYPO4 batteries, www.bluenova.co.za

    Re: FJ Cruiser Pic Thread / Upgrades / Mods

    Did anyone ever pull cables from the engine bay in to the cab and if so, where and how is the access? Want to install a 2-way radio, so power cables and the antenna cable.

    Re: FJ Cruiser Pic Thread / Upgrades / Mods

    Would you guys say it's fine to start with 5 wheel tyre rotation if the current set of tyres already have 35K km on them or will it cause issues if introducing the new spare to the mix now? The tyres...
  11. Re: If going LiFePO what is the best 12V Management wset up for a vehicle

    I'm a fan of Victron, a lot of people don't like their stuff because it's expensive and because it's modular so you have to put together different bits and pieces to build your system. They don't...
  12. Re: Prad0 150 V6 Waterpumo - When/What to look for??

    They tend to go around 180 to 200k km if I recall and it just happens. Best to do water pump and thermostat as preventative maintenance.
  13. Re: Romer cooler build quality - Does your Romer look like this?

    Yes probably slipped past QC in the factory, but well done Romer.

  14. Re: NL drop prices with launch of new Legacy range

    I see these new Legacy fridges have baskets included as standard, another plus point for me is that they kept the insulation thickness the same.

    I also see the new compressor has got a 8 year...
  15. Re: Correct size cables for my solar set up - advice pleasee

    Depending on the situation shading can be a real issue. If you have loose panels which you move around all day, if you are the type of person who likes playing with these things, who will keep a eye...
  16. Re: Correct size cables for my solar set up - advice pleasee

    Just as an aside, you can pump more than the specified amps in to Victron controllers, they can handle it. But very very important you can not exceed the voltage rating, in fact it's recommended to...
  17. Re: What can be stored (for long) in a Caravan??

    Apart from what Michael said.
    Once a year or so we go threw everything in the caravan which can get old and swop it out with newer things in the house. Tinned food, tomato sauce, coffee, tea, sugar...
  18. Re: Correct size cables for my solar set up - advice pleasee

    Listen to Fluffy, as a rule of thumb parallel is a much safer bet in mobile situations, as said with series you have the problem of shading and if you lose one connection or panel you lose your...

    Personally I would drive just across the border and go to Ponta Molangane, I find it much nicer than Kosi.

    Re: Water requirements for wild camping

    Those Gardena spray bottles are champion, uses much less water than a gas shower, so rather premix your hot/cold water in the Gardena and wash without wasting a drop. Also get used to the fact that...

    Wow ok, those pipes are quite thick and seamed very tough, but I guess if it gets too hot it can develop a soft or week spot quite easily. Doesn't quite makes sense that it was because of low water...

    Re: Preferred Coolers

    I also love my 45l Romer. Apart from its ability to keep things cold for very long my favourite feature is probably the ability to sit on it and a close second is the bottle opener in the lid.
