    Cleaning out water tanks

    Problem resolved -- drain and flush five times with more travel on rough roads which seems to have got the sediment into suspension -- also fitted five micron carbon filter - thanks again for the comments

    Cleaning out water tanks

    Thanks for the comment - hoping not to have to remove tanks but looks like the answer - where was the bung and did the tanks have baffles ??

    Balanced Towing Set-up

    Towing 2006 Kedron ATV with extended drawbar with Toyota series 100 Landcruiser fitted with airbags - measured download on van drawbar fully loaded is 200 kg - came complete with Hayman Reece torsion bar load sharing kit and adjustable ball mount assembly. Have tried travelling with and without the Hayman Reece system ( which adds about 25 kg at the ball ) with no apparent difference in performance - using the air bags to achieve level travel. Am I missing something ?? Comments and advice are very welcome .
