    Got the worse service at Imperial Mitsubishi Paarden Island, dropped the car for 70 000 kms, was told that its a quick service, only oil and filter to be changed out, when I picked-up the car at 16:50, I was told there is a missing bolt on the under protection, these technician could not replace the bolt the whole f*cking day. Now I must book the car for just one Bl**dy bolt. I had to cancel my trip to Sutherland, because the service manager told me the undercover could fall, Pity I stay in Tableview, I get good service in Kuilsriver where I bought the car.

    I have cables running from my main battery to Brad Harris plugs at the back which I am running it off. I have also split it there such that I can plug in the solar regulator.

    My Lady lost a seat today

    A friend, Bottie, and myself made a slider for the fridge today. While at his place, he presented me with a brand new 102Ah battery. For free. What a luck. I did not plan this but planne was changed to accommodate the gift.
    Bottie is a genius on this subject with a garage kitted out with tools to show it. Just a pity his mates borrowed some of his tools, like his Riv-nut gun. We made a plan and his experience was a great help.

    The complete slider frame hovers over the folded down seat. It rests on short stilts.
    The front ones has a bracket to curl underneath the bar. Need the Riv-nut tool here. The bar is loose obviously, so we will bolt it down soon.
    The back rest just behind the seat with a last support at the back where the side storage compartment hook is.
    The back storage lid can still easily be removed and the Spare Wheel nut is open enough not to struggle.

    Got the Battery Box and NL Dual Battery split-charger from OW today. Will install during the week hopefully. Gotta get some cable and connectors.
    Takes about 5 minutes to remove the complete installation.

    Question - The handles is probably not the best tie down place. It is just holding it there. The idea is to strap the complete fridge all the way around while doing ruff stuff. Any elegant ways of fixing the fridge to the loops?


    BIG thank you to Bottie for his help.

    Kudos to you and your mate, a really elegant solution to the Mitsu's problem of accessing the spare wheel release when doing a fridge slide in the back.

    I am not familiar with your fridge type but I would say the handles appear to be fitted with four bolts.

    If it is anything like the Engel, then you could probably buy (make?) a metal plate that fits between the handle and the fridge chassis that would accept a turnbuckle.

    Otherwise look at the feet. Lot of fridges have a foot transit lock system because the structure down there is strong.

    The handles are made to take the load of a fully loaded fridge + some margin for safety. I see no issue with the way you have it now

    Very nicely done, Nerd. Also think tie downs on the handles are fine. Well, I "secure" my 40l Engel that way.

    Today I installed the National Luna Split Charger, 60Amp Circuit Breaker and other stuff.
    16mm˛ cable to the back with a blue BH to the battery.

    I got a 6-way fuse box from 4x4 Direct and this is great for the positive. Feeding it with a 16mm˛ cable and some 10/15 amp fuses.
    How do you guys split the negative? Thinking Earth Bar on standoffs.

    Got one Ciggie plug installed for fridge now.
    Have two red BHs to put onto the battery box for outlets and will grow this as time goes on. Will fuse them to 20amp and label as such. Will run the fridge from this.

    Will do a brown BH for the Pump at a later stage to allow a 50Amp connection. This stuff is darn heavy on the wallet

    Added some method to the battery box madness...

    Red BH for the fridge so no one unplugs it with 10Amp fuse
    Grey BH fused at 20Amp
    Ciggie at 15Amp.

    Took mine for a day out and drove to Hermanus, via Rooi-Els, Stanford and back through Caledon home (Kuilsrivier). Keeping within the speed limit and seems the fuel consumption played along!

    Well, not just today, but Thursday to today:

    We pitched our tent for a nice 5 day rest, on the banks of the Pienaars River in a campsite next to Dinokeng Game Reserve.
    I removed the middle row seats to make space for my tent, camping beds etc........space was good.

    The rain started Wednesday afternoon and increased non stop through the night and Thursday morning. The river level started rising rapidly, and the rain continued. I approached the janitor and asked him about the flood line, and he very calmly informed me that this site gets fully flooded with heavy rains upstream. Now as you all know upstream was havoc....

    The river kept rising and the rain continued and about midday Thursday we made the call.....packing up and loading a wet tent, wet ground sheet and lots of other wet stuff with a rising river behind you and pouring rain was not quite relaxing. We got out and unpacked on Thursday evening.

    Friday morning I checked out the PS, and found to my dismay the tent bag leaked, the ground sheet bag leaked, and with the doors opening and closing during the packing, had the rear carpets drenched, water was pooling in the seat docking bars. Strangely, the front seat area was bone dry.

    So I started stripping out the 3rd row of seats, and the rear carpets. I had to remove the rear tool/storage bins as well. By midday Friday the rear was stripped to the bare body. I must admit it was very easy to dismantle, I was also impressed with the build quality of the PS.

    Saturday 14:00 all was dry and the re-assembly started, and again it was a breeze.

    At 16:00 the tent, fly sheet and ground sheet, including the tie down ropes was dry. BY 19:00 I sat back and relaxed, ready for the next camping trip, this time away from river edges...

    Today the PS got the full TLC and the retractable awning was cleaned and dried..........

    Long story but a good PS one for me, my respect for this rig just grows and grows, guarantee expired today, so after three years and 80 000 km I have no regrets on this PS.

    With my HT tires, keeping to 115 on the clock and driving like a human, I get that often as well.
    Went to Springbok and back and got down to 9L/100Km packed to the rafters with four men in the PS.

    Normal at home average at 12l/100Km though.

    Nerd, Gobat - be aware that the upgraded 140kw 3.2 Johan has in SWB is quite a bit more frugal on juice than the 120kw 3.2's we have in our cars. To get the same consumption you would have to lowbed it for half the distance.

    The best EVER I think on my Pajero was 11L per 100km and that was with the Blonde pussyfooting back downhill from Centurion. The Triton Clubcab does 10 in the same circumstances.
