  1. Re: Anyone got experience with the budget brand tyre... ROYAL BLACK...

    About 15 000, not really showing signs of wear yet. As they appear and feel to be a bit softer than the previous tyres I only let them down to 1.8 bar and there is no significant bulge. They did...
  2. Re: Anyone got experience with the budget brand tyre... ROYAL BLACK...

    Put them on my Pajtu after a disappointing 47 000 only from a set of Pirelli scorpions. Did the Kgalagadi on those horrible corrugations and was very happy and pleased with them. They are softer but...

    Re: Dead solar panel - advice?

    I recently checked a system on my mates rig and had the same thing. It was a diode that was broken. R20 and a quick soldering job and it was fixed up.

    Re: Solar needed for namakwa eco trail

    My personal opinion for the costs and hassle involved to get an ice machine working, I would buy a decent Romer cool box, pack it full of block ice and chip off what I need every day.

    For a deep cycle you should use an intelligent charger and it will run through it's own cycle and basically tell you when it is done.

    If it is not an intelligent charger then you need to monitor...

    Re: Duel battery dead

    Isn't the whole point of the solenoid to prevent back flow while allowing charging.

    Re: Air suspension for towing

    Perhaps we need to split hairs here.

    You get the bags that insert into the coils and then you get the "bellows" type. I have heard no complaints around the insert type.
