    I have three of those fridges, 2x 12v DC and 1x 220v AC. None of them are very efficient. The 12v fridges really kill a battery (150AH) overnight, no low power cutt off ... and the 220v one running...

    Re: Off the beaten track camping ideas

    Burchell's Route on the Prince Albert's pass between Plet and Uniondale. I really enjoy it. Only 3 1/2 hours from PE but that lets you get up later or do a bit of 4x4ing ;D

    Re: Swap 15W panel for a 10W

    To my small brain this sounds crazy. Assuming the panels are both "12v" panels then amperage is drawn as the pump requires is. You could theoretically put a 100w 12v panel on your pump and it would...

    The 240 and 350 were both very good engines. The 240 was the old Opel SOHC motor which is ultra reliable. They replaced the earlier KB200 & KB260 and the 320 V6. These motors were all dogs in my...

    Re: What do you think my Pajero is worth?

    Sad to say I doubt if you will get R80K for it at a big push. Probably around R65K to R69K will be a realistic figure. There is one in George at a dealer for R65K at the moment.
