  1. Hi John , we own a Top Ender with upgraded ATM to 3990 kg towing with 200 series with Lovell’s 3850 and 4t towing upgrades. Our usual weight is around 3.4-5 sometimes a little more and found that with the Hitch easy Hitch the van tracks better with the distribution bars . Just feels safer . Regarding emptying the canister sometimes you just may have to dig a hole . We haven’t bothered with a grey water tank but if buying new it probably would be a good idea. kedron in my opinion build a great caravan which will take you where ever you may want to travel , they are well finished with many features and top quality extras . The best is though the after sales backup and service is second to none. The Kedron team will bend over backwards to help you . John
  2. Just missed you . Spent the last two nights at Coalseam and drove through Mingenew this morning.The wildflowers are prolific this year . I did see a Kedron camped at the Breakaway site last night when I was on the phone ( only can get reception there) went back this morning but they were gone . WA private plates . John
  3. Thanks Merv , whilst I am happy with that , makes me wonder though, if it’s deemed not to be safe As of June 1, why is our upgrade ok ? You would think that it would have to be for all vehicles if it’s not safe .Doesnt make sense to me . I am very happy with the upgrades.
  4. Been trying to decipher the discussions on the other forums. What about the second stage 4 tonne tow upgrade which we have , is this also as well as the GVM upgrade still legal ? Prior June 1 ?
  5. Thanks Tony I will check it all out . You are right plus I have had a claim with KT, no problems at all . Dont really want to leave them . Apologies to Di and Andy for hacking your thread . Hope that you get things sorted out soon. John
  6. Hi all Ken Tame ? Have been insured with them for some time now but received the renewal notice this week and thought I Better compare prices . RACWA and Apia are both $600 cheaper!! Seems like Ken is going to miss out .
  7. Had a disaster yesterday. We are in Bremer Bay WA setting up the awning then crash. The cast iron bracket holding the roll on to the arm/leg snapped off . Upon inspection it no wonder as the bracket isn’t that thick . The best part is that I got a local fix it all man to fabricate a stainless steel bracket. Now it’s probably stronger than the original and he was able to make and install it within 5 hours .Total cost $100 .00 The awning is an Aussie Traveler Sunbust Eclipse if you have one may pay to keep an eye on this bracket. It’s the front or left one, top bracket which fits over the leg /arm and is attached with a roller pin . John
  8. It’s maybe a good question if your attachment point on your vehicle are small then you may need to fit a set of hammer locks first then rated shackles. Our 200 series have rather large holes and I am using 3.2 t shackles. I believe that I need 4 t ones but hey enough is enough I recon.
  9. Thanks Tony that was funny but somewhere near the way things are heading. We would like to wish you and other Kedron owners a belated Merry Christmas and may we all have a great year ahead of us with many days spent in our wonderful caravans . This year we tried to concentrate on the real meaning of Christmas. We had a great Time at Church/dinner with all our children and grandkids/dinner with the brother and a family bbq at the beach . Need to diet now . Just as well the cricket is on, time to relax in front of the box . Greetings John and Jo
  10. Guess what . Finally got the ATM upgrade completed and approved this morning. Ended up purchasing the Bartlet system from Transparts in Qld . Mate ex body builder (trucks) did the weld for me . I am relieved it’s all over .Upgrade ATM to 3990 although we will always be lighter than this at least we are always legal . Thanks people for the advice and have great Christmas and a safe 2018
  11. Hi Paul and Belinda , we like Chris also had TI Lithium install our system. 600 amp with 580 w existing solar . Terry told us that while he installs a lot of 400amp systems he has had people coming back saying they wish they had another 200 so we bit the bullet and are very happy with the set up and happy with lots of power . Ok the cost was high but now long forgotten and have had great after sales service from Terry he knows his stuff . One thing we still need to buy is a portable solar panel . As Chris said these batteries can be drawn down to 15 percent causing no damage but you do need a good charging system including a dc to dc charger . As far as pricing goes every system will be different according to size, what you currently have and how much labor to install. John
  12. You are right Merv we stayed overnight some years ago it was terrific.Something we will never forget including meeting the owner of the operation who had been out remote fishing with his helicopter which he landed on a barge behind the houseboat.
  13. Has anyone installed the automatic RED FOOT levelling systems to your caravan? Recently bent the two rear stabilisers so need replacing , I know my mistake !! Maybe I'm lazy but levelling from inside does seem appealing. But ?
  14. Sorry I now understand what you are asking . Maybe talk to David or Glen,they may be able to come up with something for you . The new TE5 look good hey John
