    Have a look Iridium GO you can use your smart phone to connect also check out Pivotel plans these are good because calls to your sat phone are at normal mobile phone rates not sat phone

    Good afternoon we have just about to go and pickup our new LC200 it has had the rear end cutoff and a canopy put on it , this has been done by Creative Conversions in Brendale , we have had the GVM upgrade done , it can be done in 2 stages , the first stage is from 3500kg to 3800kg by upgrading suspension , the second stage which is what we have done is wheel and tyre upgrade , suspension upgrade and rear axle reinforcement this takes it to 4200kg GVM with federal approval , talk to Len at Creative he can give you good honest advise

    Battery Seperation LC 200 Series

    Just to throw a cat among the pigeons , most dual battery sysyems seperate the main cranking battery when the ignition is turned off ( battery isolation) have a look at Traxide http://www.traxide.com.au/ their systems shares the load over all batterys until the voltage drops to a level which is not enough to start your car it then isolates the cranking battery but in the mean time it uses the capacity of all the batteries in the system , it is a lot easier to install as well , also it is worth looking at http://www.hkbelect.com/ these guys replace the alternator fuse which increases the charge voltage by .5v to .6v which in some cases is enough to keep all your batteries charged , i am not associated with these guys at all but i have a new 200 Series being converted in Brisbane ATM , looks a bit criminal as the car has only done 10KM (see picture)

    Diesel Water Heater

    We have done our first install of the Genisis diesel hot water system , the basis of the setup is a diesel fired furnace , a buffer tank contain Glycol (radiator coolant) , a plate heat exchanger (for exchanging heat from the Glycol to the water) and a fan head for supplying hot air to warm the van, the fan heads come in either 2.7kw or 5kw for larger motor homes and caravans , the unit on high has a fuel consumption of around .6L per hour , we have found that using a 2.7kw head it warms a 20ft van very well , the biggest advantage is that it uses the one source for both hot water and heating , the system can be fitted with a Webasto german 4kw furnace or a Belief Chinese furnace depending on budget . Output for the hot water side will give you around 12l at 70-80C with a flow rate around 10l per minute , we also fit tempering valves to prevent scalding . I will attach some pictures of the system so you get an idea of how they work , if anybody would like further info just drop me a line buffer tank.tiff heat exchnger.tiff

    Off road Stuff

    Hi Rod It was a simple mod , what i did was to take the old plastic vent out cut the louvres out put it in my lathe and bore it out to suit a 2" hi pressure water socket , i then glued a peice of pipe in the socket and used a 2" high pressure cap to push over the end of the pipe , this just slides on , the socket is then Sika Flexed into the bored out vent

    Off road Stuff

    Hi Lyn and Brenton thanks for the info i did the mod on the range hood vent so that i didn't have to gaffer tape it every time i hit a dusty road , i think rear kitchens are worse , i have left a modified vent with Kedron for our new XC3 so they can install it from new , its simple but it works , i glad that the Waeco works well in high temps , being in Tassie the lack of solar input in winter means that we end up with flat batteries after 2 days with no solar input , so our new van will have 4 x 140w panels plus 3 x 120 amp batteries , may be a bit of an overkill in sunny QLD but not in Tassie , would be happy to do the mods for the range hood at cost if anybody wants them
