  1. Hi Paul, Yes I have had Safety Dave Monitors fitted for 2 years and have found them to be very accurate ,good quality, with excellent backup from supplier. Although they are supplied with a relay to pickup signal from van ,found it wasn't needed in fact I could read my van pressure from car 20+ meters away. Hope this information helps. Cheers John
  2. Hi David & Macca, Have also experienced the cold air through the fridge vent. Have had a shade cloth screen made up similar to the type we had on our 3 way fridge, attached it to the sail track which I assume would have been fitted to the XC5 on that side and pegged down out from the van. We haven't been able to test it fully since the weather has warmed up! The material was a 90% mesh used for house & pool shade sails,( not your garden or caravan shop end shades variety.) Sail is 1500mm wide 2200mm long. As for insects it isn't too hard to place a piece of mesh behind the vent. I reckon that in most weather a vent is not required as there is top & bottom vents on the fridge but it has been fitted as a requirement from Dometic. Cheers John
  3. All sorted thanks to Wedmaster, I was just having a seniors moment!!!

      I was able to load a 9.1mb file without problems.  Are they jpeg files you are using.  how many and what size?

  6. Thanks Chris, You are correct I should have known, as we have a XC3 on order and have the leg rests included. Cheers John
  7. Hey Guys, I am curious as to what these lift up leg extensions are that you mention? Thinking they are maybe something to do with stabiliser legs but please help! Cheers John
  8. Hi Mrs Goody, I notice your location is Owens Creek if that is near Mackay the clocks are available at the new Jayco complex @ Bakers Ck. Cheers John
  9. Hi Ian, I'am no expert in this field but have a CTEK D250S Dual DC to Dc charger fitted to our van. There are 4 terminals Solar in (+), Altenator in (+), All negatives(-), Out to battery positive and any other(+). So I would suggest that your Anderson negative should be connected to the All negative terminal on the DC to DC and the Anderson positive to the Alternator IN terminal. The battery negative would be connected to the same all negative terminal and the battery positive would be connected to the output positive (+)terminal. Ian I hope this info is of some help. Cheers John
  10. Talk about having an ocean view,how good is that. John
  11. Don’t Sell Australia Out When the shearing sheds are silent and the stock camps fallen quiet When the gidgee coals no longer glow across the outback night And the bush is forced to hang a sign,”gone broke and won’t be back” And spirits fear to find a way beyond the beaten track. When harvesters stand derelict upon the windswept plains And brave hearts pin their hopes no more on chance of loving rains When a hundred outback settlements are ghost towns overnight When we’ve lost the drive and heart we had to once more see us right. When “Pioneer”means a stereo and “Digger” some backhoe And the “Outback” is behind the house there’s nowhere else to go And “Anzac” is a biscuit brand and probably foreign owned And education really means brainwashed and neatly cloned. When we have to bake a loaf of bread to make a decent crust And our heritage once enshrined in gold is crumbling to dust And old folk pay their camping fees on land for which they fought And fishing is a great escape; this is until you’re caught! When you see our kids with yankee caps and resentment in their eyes And the soaring crime and hopeless hearts is no longer a surprise When the name RM Williams is a yuppies clothing brand Not a product of our heritage that grew from off the land. When offering a hand makes people think you’ll amputate And two dogs meeting in the street is what you call a “Mate” When “Political Correctness” has replaced all common sense When you’re forced to see it their way, there’s no sitting on the fence. Yes one day you might find yourself an outcast in the land Perhaps your heart will tell you then “I should have made a stand” Just go and ask the farmers that should remove all doubt Then join the swelling ranks who say “don’t sell Australia out”.

  12. Hi Rob, I'am no expert but I would think that it would connect direct to the batteries,the fuse would be somewhere on the positive line under the bonnet. 91% sounds fair as the alternator regulator would cut in so that it didn't overcharge the battery.So you may travel all day and not make 99%. Like I say I'am no expert Cheers John
  13. Hi Scott, We have a 2001 ATV poptop since new #73. We recognized the strength and build quality back then when no other van came close.I can assure you that as long as it has been reasonally maintained you will have a lot of fun with it. They are built like a brick s---house in fact you will find that the checkerplate surrounds is the real deal not like the more recent models. We love our van it may lack some of the modern additions,no toilet etc but have outside shower and at our stage of life are still happy to rough it a bit. We have added some extras, (solar,DC to Dc charger,reverse camera,stone guard,LED lights,) Hope this helps with your decision Cheers John
  14. Hi Chris, Yes I'am a chicken also that is why I thought I would ask first. I have had another look and will drill a hole at the bottom as Merv mentioned and if the wire doesn't feed up will try inside the cupboards.It's only a matter of a bit of silicone to reseal the hole. Thanks John
  15. Hi Merv, Thanks for your advise re camera, obviously you have some knowledge as to what is behind the cladding. I wasn't sure if there would be a passage down past the frame without striking a horozontal bar. I was thinking of fitting along the chassis rail but didn't want cable down the outside at the rear of the van. Thanks again Regards John
