    Some feedback on a modification that I have done some time back and only really tested on my recent roadtrip holiday.

    I have changed the side flaps on my Xplorer tent to also have eyelets in them to enable me to add aditional poles in there to lift them up and make a more airy shade area, when camped in hot dry areas. I can of course also still drop them down and have an enclosed area if heat retention or wind protection is of a bigger concern.

    This changed the dinamics and options a lot and scored browny points with Swambo. Both setups use the same amount of pegs, so not really extra work.

    CATS

    I do not know why some photos are upside down. Sorry.

    So after my last roadtrip on the last day my Atwood geyser stopped working. I was running it on gas the whole trip, in fact never plugged in anywhere so thought the gas was done and by chance it also died after a short test at the stove, but this was not the cause.

    The cause was the thermal heat fuse which fused. I had this same problem many years ago when I had a spider nesting in the chimney of the geyser. At that time I could pick up a replacement part at the caraban dealer but this time it was not to be. Stock difficult to get they say. So I had to make a plan.

    The fuse is basically a diode on a wire that 'melts" when exposed to heat beyond a certsin point. The idea is that it will prevent a fire if the fire in the chimney blows back due to continued wind or a blocked chimney due to blockage. It can be bypassed as an emergency after ckearing blockage etc but is an important safety mechanism.

    So some Googling got me some parts in USA or Alibaba, but it seemed like a normal wlectronic thing so I Googled some more. It seems to be a
    Microtemp G4A01, TF 098C thermal fuse with 98deg C melting point. So I popped in at Comunica and got same, bought 2x for R17, including clips. Crimped it together after sliding over plastic pipe and it seems to be working.

    CATS
    Hopefully I am camping close to you if you ever encounter the same, as I now have spare in my caravan :-)

    Cats,
    Biekie raad asb
    My xplorer 99 model het selfde geyser, maar gee baie roet af.
    Ek het al met die lug vloei valve daai een met die gleufies wat skuif getoets.
    Maar niks groot verskil nie.
    Waarna moet ek ook kyk.

    Ek knyp n aluminium drip bak vas aan die cover dat die sy van die karavaan nie so vreeslik swart roet kry nie.

    Sjoe Jan. Myne gee glad nie roet af nie. Dalk is die brander nie diep genoeg in die skoorsteen nie, of dalk te ver?. Ek neem aan jy het al die skoorsteen skoon gemaak? Jy kan sommer met tuinslang water afspuit in the skoorsteen, nou nie op erge pressure nie, as daar iets is sal dit dan uitspoel.

    Neem miskien foto van jou geyser met die cover oop dan kan ons dit vergelyk met myne. Dalk is iets uit lyn uit. Anders kan ek maar net dink dat dit die lugmengsel kan wees waarmee jy al reeds eksperimenteer het.

    Is die probleem nie dalk jou gas nie? Brand hy roet op jou potte by die stoof? Ek het al gevind dat sekere kere se gas meer roet afgee as ander.

    Myne brand so skoon op gas dat die enigste manier om te weet dat die gas aan is is om te luister by die skoorsteen uitlaat of versigtig daaraan te voel of dit warm is en of daar warm lug uitkom. (Explorer 2010)

    Cats ek sal bietjie maak soos jy voorstel met die brander posisie ens. Miskien die jet ook vervang.
    Die stoof brand nie swart op die potte nie. Sal ook die gas lyn purge met lug.

    Gerhard,
    Die 2010 dink ek het die Hansen geyser, n totaal verbeterde produk.
    Ek het al oorweeg om myne te vervang met die Hansen,maar behalwe die roet issue maak myne lekker warm.

    Ek sien jy het vol tent daar opgeslaan. Ek het so 'n vol tent wat ek saam met my Xplorer in 2003 gekry het. Seker al 3 keer gebruik. Hy le in my garage. Het iemand dalk nut vir so iets hier? Kontak my maar as iemand dalk belang stel.

    Ja, by die see moet jy maar voltent opslaan.
    Ek het al navraag gedoen oor die nuwe modelle se tente maar my ou 99 pas hulle nie.
    Eerlik wil ek nie nog geld uitle op ou karavaan nie.
    Dis n schlepp as ek en vroulief alleen opslaan en afslaan.
    Ek het die awning ook vir binneland,maar dan gebruik ons my camper met ttt.

    Moet nou net daai geyser roet uitsort.

    Cats,

    Het toe die roet probleem opgelos.
    Dit was die lug verstelling by die jet .
    Daar is n skuif luginlaat en myne was aan die verkeerde kant.
    Skuif hom toe die gas loop en whalla ..
    Niks roet of rook nie.
    Dankie almal.

    Ek wil graag julle menings hoor asb: ek het 'n 2007 Xplorer gekoop teen net onder die R100k. Die wa is nog nuut, ek dink die mense het dit gekoop maar nooit of bitter min gebruik. Tente is nog nuut en opgevou, gasbottels nuut en lyk of hulle nooit uitgehaal is nie, uitslaan tent by die neus is splinter nuut ens...

    Wat ek wil weet is met watter voertuig ek moet/kan sleep. Ek het 'n V6 (petrol) Cruiser bakkie en 'n 3.2 DiD (diesel) swb Pajero.

    Ons gaan weer Augustus Botswana toe en die dik sand is party plekke moeilik. Ons was Desember ook daar maar toe het ek met 'n 200 Land Cruiser 'n Bundu sleepwaentjie gesleep. Die Xplorer is 'n heel ander storie. Die Cruiser het my terleurgestel en is op slag verkoop

    Hi Robert,

    Jou Pajero sal voldoende wees en jy behoort beste diesel verbruik met hom te kry, daar is genoeg krag en torgue. Daar is a paar manne wat met hulle sleep. (Met LWB well). Die v6 Cruiser gaan seker teen 3km/ltr hardloop as jy gelukkig is.

    Ek sleep met die 2.8 GD6 FT en was Junie 2019 deur Chobe en van daar af tot by Thobolo en van daar deur Savuti op pad Maun toe. Die sand was baie baie dik by Thobolo en het geen probleem gehad. Moes selfs n hele paar keer uit die 2 spoor klim met karavaan vir ouens wat gesukkel het met bakkies.

    Groot geheim is bande se druk. Ek het kar afgevat na 1.4bar en karavaan af na 1.5bar anders word hy n anker. Nerens vas gesit of enige ander probleme gehad met sand nie.

    Sterkte en geniet die karavaan.

    Nou net my wa gaan haal met die Cruiser. Hel maar die wa is swaar.

    Kan ek die bande en rims met 17" vervang? Beide die Cruiser en Pajero het 17" op. Die wa het nog sy oorspronklike 2007 jaar bande en spaarwiel op.

    Jy kan ande rims opsit maar ek sou nie "bother" nie. Onthou jy kan die rim vergroot en nog steeds dieselfde omtrek hou deur net ander band te gebruik. As jy egter die omtrek ook groter maak dan gaan jy spacer moet insit op die wa ander gaan die band die wa vang. Ek het dit als op'n stadium gedoen maar is nou weer terug na standaard. Dit is net te veel moeite vir die miskien dat jy dalk 3 pap wiele gaan kry op 'n trip waar jy nie ten minste die pap wiel kan self patch/prop nie.

    Hou by die standaard rim en wiel op Xplorer. Hy werk goed.

    Is my 2 sente.
