    Ek het ook groter rims en bande en die spaarwiel moes ek maak-pas.

    Die gate moet nog steeds pas op die 3 Studs. In my geval steek die rim verder uit, so moes daai driehoek plaatjie bietjie buig om die wheelspanner te kon vasdraai.

    Foto is nie so mooi, maar behoort jou ‘n idee te gee.

    Ek bel mos vir Martin Appelgryn by Bushlapa, seg hy vir my, daar MOET 'n 40mm gaping wees tussen die buiteband en die binne kant van die "wheel arch", ek gaan meet toe, met die Toyota rim is daar dalk 15mm...al manier om dit reg te kry is om' n ander as op te sit, nog R9000, gelukkig sal die man my geld terug gee by wie ek die Toyota rims gekoop het. Ek is so teleurgesteld, kleur was reg, sou mooi gelyk het, maar daai 15mm gaping, is moeilikheid soek as ons die offroading ding doen.

    Dis nou jammer. Spacers sou kon werk, maar geensins aan te beveel.

    Verkieslik moet die “offset” ook so naby as moontlik wees aan Nul.

    Kan jou verskaffer nie dieselfde rims met 0 offset vir jou kry nie

    Kaptein, ek het van oorgrote motorwiele (en wiel verloor) terug gegaan na standaard trailer rims en bande. Nou baie gelukkig. Karavaan stoot ook baie makliker met die hand as tevore. Hou dit standaard, dit maak n groot verskil.

    I have gone to tyre sizes to match the car - R17
    I also upgraded the axle - all good.
    BUT now - the kitchen area is 50mm higher and it irritates the boss!

    I want to move from the PWM solar controller to the mppt controller.
    What battery did you select in the MPPT configuration? Looks like the default is a Victron gel battery which should probably be changed?

    MPPT works with any battery type. No need to change batteries if you only plan to change the solar charger.

    I use Lithium, but some (who don't calculate the cost over time and increased performance) say it's too expensive.

    Not many options as what you can select in terms of battery type, unless you choose User Defined, Expert Mode and change every item according to your specific Lead Acid battery.

    It can be done, but you will need the correct info from the clever sparkies.

    Personally, mine is on default, and I have no issues for the past year, works great, batteries seem healthy.

    I think Victron states that the default settings are good for most Lead Acid/gel batteries.

    Thanks. Yes, left it on the default setting (2) as it seem like it is OK for the standard deep cycle battery used by BL.Click image for larger version.

    Hi all. Im new to the site and new to the BL family. The gas geyser in my Boskriek is fixed with two bolts only, it seems to be a bit flimsy. Did anybody experience problems with this?

    Welcome to the site and the BL family. You will enjoy it here and learn stacks.

    The top screw on our geyser rattled loose several times and so I put in a slightly bigger screw and washer, tightened it well and that seemed to do the trick.

    Got our Boskriek back from its annual service at BL . . great service as always, thanks Martin . . . and a couple of little mods, of course.

    So today I planned to fit an LED light on the underside of the opened door, to give us light over the the back area and the washing up, etc. Bought the light, BH plug, some cable, double sided tape etc. and got to work. First things first. Had a look exactly where I wanted to position the light. As I put my hand up, there was an existing BL light, which I had never noticed before! It has been thre all the time, exactly where I was planning to put my LED. Do BL think of everything?

    We have BL 677, so things may be different in the newer models. Anyway, the Outdoor Warehouse ammo boxes fit perfectly between the fridge and the geyser but it's a pain to get anything out of them, especially the bottom one. So I asked my good friend if there was anything he could do about it. This is what he has come up with - I think it's brilliant! Not sure how to attach a video, hopefully this works.
