    Napisan as toilet treatment

    G`Day Allan Using it straight would be a too much. (damage to seals). I think if you cut it back to about half a tablespoon to a litre of warm water,you should be good to go. Cheers

    Jolybe

    G`Day John and Lyn We changed all of our fly wire to midge mesh some yrs. ago. A fiddly job but well worth the effort.It cut back the midge entrance by about 98%.

    Solar Controller

    Thanks Andrew. I have pulled the fuse a few times because it is over charging the batteries. Because we are getting so much sun up here I have to keep a close eye on it .It gets up to 15.8 volts,so I pull the fuse until it drops back ,usually at night. Just waiting for people in Townsville to go back to work and I can hopefully get it fixed.

    Solar Controller

    Our nearly 9 yr.old Plasmatronic solar controller has decided to give up the ghost. Great timing ,because everybody is closed for Xmas. Everything seems to be working normally .batteries charging etc. but the panel on the controller keeps flicking through and comes up with menu items I have never seen before. At the moment I am pulling the fuse on it every couple of hours to stop it from overcharging and killing the batteries. Any suggestions? We are in Balgal Beach (50ks north of Townsville) doing a house sit until Jan.20th. I have had to disconnect the internal monitor to stop it from beeping and cycling.

    Number Plate Height

    I think Merv is correct on the home state comment. We have been on the road for 9yrs.now inc. a large amount of time in NSW and never been chatted about it.
  12. G~Day Goodys There is a guy in Caboolture Qld. that does good work on van fridges called The Fridge Whisperer.A decent fridgy should be able to find the leak easily,the van A/Cs are not that complicated.Usually a copper pipe leak. Cheers Rick PS I am guessing you are at Owens ck.Qld. not Tas.?

    Start 3way fridge on gas

    G`Day Gail & Charlie Welcome to the forum. My advice on the gas problem would be to ring Ashley at Kedron. He should be able to help you out. Cheers Rick

    Vitrofrigo fridge noise

    G`Day Leon Hate to be the bearer of bad news mate ,but that sounds like the noise ours made a couple of yrs. ago before it died.It Might be the electronic control board. We had to put another Vitrifigo in as that was the only one that fit in the current space. We purchased our new one from Caravans plus in Canberra.(Delivered to Port Augusta) at a good price.The new fridge seems to be a bit better build quality. I guess time will tell. Cheers

    Are you happy with your Kedron?

    Hi all We ordered our ATV in early 2007 for delivery in March 2008. During that waiting period we changed our minds about 10 times on various features, but were given no grief at all by Kedron. Build and delivery went smoothly, and after our 'shake-down' the majority of the niggly little issues were fixed with no problems at all. Under warranty of course. Since that time, yes we have had the occasional problem - Vitri fridge died a couple of times (until we replaced it), some of the cabinetry took exception to being taken on corrugated roads, and I really don't want to talk about the Thetford toilet! We have had nothing but good service and good cheer for all these items and more (general services, replacing the battery charger, replacing the batteries, adding new invertors, solar panels, new tyres etc, etc). We live in our van and we are very happy with both the construction and design. I know that some Kedron owners have had problems both minor and major with their vans, and have also had clashes with Kedron staff which resulted in souring relations with the company. When a person spends what to us was a very large amount of money on a caravan, they want to know that the company behind that van can be relied upon and that the van is built to specifications. I would suggest Danno that nothing and nobody is perfect, but throughout our 9 years (we had a little Keddie before picking up our current van), and talking to many, many Kedron owners, the larger percentage have professed to be happy with the choice of a Kedron van. Cheers Rick
