  2. Hi I was wondering how much difference does GVM upgrade make to driving dynamics when not fully loaded

  4. Hi Rod, Looks very good. I am going through the same process now. One comment though. You seem to have the fuse very close to the inverter. The fuse should be located as close as possible to the battery. The purpose of the fuse is to protect the cable in case of a short which would allow excess current to flow from the battery through the cable. Having the fuse distant from the battery does not protect the cable if the cable shorts somewhere along its length before the fuse. This situation could happen if for some reason the insulation became damaged. Attached is a copy of the appropriate page of the installation instructions which also mentions this. Regards, Ken Fuse Location.pdf
  5. Christmas has come early 3 new lithium batteries landed on my front door Itechword 120x looking to put them to the test
  6. Hi Tony That’s the system, there is a motor on each wheel and it would be ideal for moving around my yard as the area I keep the van is tight. I have had a look at more pics. and don’t believe it will fit, I believe it will foul on the suspension. Cheers Bryan

    Hi all !not a kedron owner yet. Just wondering if anyone is selling a 16foot CP5? Keen to buy a second hand one.
  8. Hi Bryan, Is this what your referring to.... https://www.purpleline.com.au/ ??? Thinking that they may be of benefit on a 'black top only' type van, but doubting their use on an off road van due to their positioning. Cheers Tony

  11. Tony, Ryan does a lot of work for Kedron and has indicated he would love to talk at a future gathering.
  12. Greetings one & all, Wow, what a crazy start to this year, it has been. Fires, COVID-19 & other silly stuff going on around most of the world. Planning is underway for this years Christmas Gathering & AGM. It will be held again at the popular Kilkivan Bush & Caravan Park! Dates to put in your diary are 2nd - 8th November 2020. Presentations from informative & caravan related speakers are being secured & locked into a full on fun programme. At this stage there isn't a 'theme' for this years gathering......who would like to suggest a theme? Do you have any suggestions on speakers or demonstrations you would like to see or hear about at this years gathering?? I have (some) speakers secured already......but have a couple of spots to fill.....I need suggestions please!!! This is your gathering make it fun & informative, for yourself & every other Kedron owner! Registrations & programme details will be announced mid July.

Remember there are no strangers in the 'Kedron' family....only friends you haven't met yet!
  13. As we live in SA, where are (theoretically) no COVID-19 cases, we are free to travel intrastate. So we headed first to the Flinders a few weeks ago. And then we travelled to the Gawler Ranges NP. We came out from the park earlier today. What spectacular country! I didn’t imagine it could be so special. Gorgeous goldS and reds In the Ranges, and interesting foliage. We had the best camp site in the best campground in the whole park, I think. We camped at Yandinga campground. It can accommodate up to 9 camp groups, according to the booking website. The sites are large and well separated. Ours could take two or three vans if in a group. The only facilities are a drop toilet and fireplace at most sites. Given there were freezing nights, a fire was nice for cooking or sitting around. When we got up yesterday, the Weber BBQ was covered in ice. But days were sunny and warm. Perfect. The road out there was fine, although that changes on a regular basis, depending on when last graded. The short track into Yandinga was very corrugated. There is so much to see and do in the park that we didn’t get to see or do it all. Another trip! We left this morning as previous weather reports said rain was due in a day’s time. Now of course, that has changed and rain is not due at all. Sigh. Anyway, here are several photos.

  16. Hi Ken, if you decide on an inverter, a 300 watt pure sine wave inverter would be needed for the MacBook Pro. I don’t think a modified sine wave inverter will charge the MacBook. cheers, Peter
  17. We are camped at the Wudinna Showgrounds prior to heading into the Gawler Ranges on Monday (after the long weekenders have all gone home), the Showgrounds are quite lovely, and very quiet. Apart from a late arrival, another caravan, we are the only ones here. $15 for power and water. And a magic meal at the local hotel.
  18. SOLD Black Clearview towing mirrors to suit 100 series Landcruiser for sale. Full instructions to fit included. $300 negotiable. Located in Brisbane. Phone Sheryl on zero four one seven 633097.
  19. Have fun....stay safe.
  20. As intrastate travel is now allowed within South Australia, we have already done one trip (to the Flinders Ranges) and are now ready to again go to another nice SA national park campground. Well, we hope its nice, as we have never been there before... The trouble is, we have to book and pay before going, and there is no phone reception up there. The Gawler ranges are in the Northern area of the Eyre Peninsula, near Wudinna. First we are going to the little town of Laura, where the Golden North ice cream is made (no that is NOT why we are going there). We want to see a few things around there, and although a caravan park is usually anathema to me, apparently this one is lovely. If anyone else is meandering around out that way, and see us, yell out. We are the greeny coloured van and golden LC. This is us on a previous trip (on the Strzelecki Track).
  21. We have an inverter in our van and generally use it however for extended stays and lousy weather at times we have also used power banks as well. They can be charged whilst you drive to and from places in the car for the day or when you go to the next place. Ordinary small one will work on phone and ipad I am using Cygnett 15,000mah. Picked it up from a telstra shop in our travels. macbook pro requires a much stronger power bank. I am using Cygnett USB-C 27,000mah. Picked this up from Harvey Norman shop after much mucking around. These can be precharged and only have to be topped up when needed.
  22. Hi all, Can you help me check the best way to charge, while bush camping with no power, my Ipad Pro (USB C) and my MacBook Pro. I have a 120Ah AGM deep cycle battery. I have 2 cigarette lighter type ports in van. So I am considering with 12v connector with USB, and also maybe a 240v inverter with PPT plugs. Thanks. Ken.

  24. HiPhil and Katirna , we installed: remap and torque converter and are very happy with both . The remap gives us a little more power and the torque converter makes towing our heavy Kedron Top Ender a breeze . Sure it was easy before in 2016 200 series but it now holds it in gear for longer periods plus a substantial fuel saving .Its now a much smoother ride . We also have the Lovells GVM and tow kit installed. Sure it’s all costly, but in our case the land cruiser is our about town vehicle as well and suits us very well .
  25. with our 2017 VX, we put in a pre diesel filter and just drive it, lovells upgrade for our XC5, save your pennies it really inst needed
  26. A little check now is much better than a big cheque later!
