    Only question, does anyone tow their Baobab or Ratel with a stabilizer? Is it a even a requirement, specifically for a Bush Lapa Baobab or Ratel?
    I don't use a stabilizer, so open to advise.
    Thanks in advance
    Nope, I don't, but some people might as an extra safety.

    Why do you ask? Did you have issues with sway?

    Zero issues with sway. As said, towed really well.
    Question is only out of interest and knowing stabilizer is only meant to be an additional safety future, not a remedy.

    I just want to rant a bit.

    I purchased a WRND Inverter, like to support Local if I can.

    1. Arrived via Courier wrapped in Bubble Wrap, no box nothing.

    2. Yes! you guest it, it did not work, kept blowing a 40amp fuse, had to take it apart just to get to the fuse.. Changed but still did not work, would not even charge my Camera battery.

    3. Phone WRND hey just send it back. I put it in a box and packed it well.

    4. Asked for a refund, got 80% back. Shocking. Told me it is now second hand.

    Well my point is don't buy WRND products. Thanks to BL they don't use WRND products, I will now stick to Victron a few extra bob but worth it.

    Rant over, have a great Youth day... I am packed ready to Camp as soon as I get the word.

    Can't wait.

    Dave

    had a similar experience 3yrs back - replaced with Victron = no problems

    I went this route and fitted a 2plate Dometic unit https://www.dometic.com/en-gb/uk/pro...g-2335-_-20635 .... looks very nice , works well enough BUT subsequently found that this big plate small plate combo does not work well as it limits the size of pots one can use - if one does this again then choose this model https://www.dometic.com/en-gb/uk/pro...pi8022-_-35848 as the plates are further a apart and it has the igniters .
