  1. Hi Peter, No dramas, ..........wishing the 'bride' a speedy recovery. Travel safe Tony
  2. No disrespect to you but.......that’s a shity bit of engineering!
  3. G’day Merv, I have used MyUS a few times and I have also found them to be reliable and efficient. GMpartsonline.net is a good source for parts & Rockauto.com is amazing. I must have a look at my towbar and see what it requires re strengthening Cheers Tony

    Enerdrive dc2dc

    G'day Rod, I also have the Enerdrive 40 amp + dc2dc charger it is a great bit of gear. I replaced the original 'lighter' factory fitted wiring with Cross Section (mm2) 33.6 with a 120 amp Anderson Plug. The original cabling was routed along the inside of the A frame/draw bar (NOT inside the draw bar) I ran the new cabling the same way with appropriate convoluted tubing for protection. Your call, if you run the cabling through the draw bar.....but I don't like drilling holes in my draw bar! I also upgraded the wiring from the cranking batteries to the back of the vehicle fitting a matching 120 amp Anderson Plug. These chargers are capable (and do) charge close to 50 amps and you need cabling suitably sized to minimise voltage drop and overheating of the cable. These dc2dc chargers are capable of being a solar controller as well......I left my original solar controller in place so it operates separately to the dc2dc.....giving me a little bit of security if either the dc charger or the solar controller fails I still have the other to maintain charge....hope this is of assistance to you. See cabling sizing chart in attachment. Cheers Tony cable-table-web.pdf
  5. Hi Sue & Ian, WOW that's fantastic......good chance you'll win the travel award. Travel safe & looking forward to seeing you. Tony.
  6. Just ordered three, Gemma @ Fairlite Plastics still requires a few more orders for a production run!
  7. Peter if your picking up your new van in October......maybe you should do a shakedown tour of SE Qld and attend our Christmas gathering at Kilkivan in early November. Cheers.....enjoy your ‘new baby’ Tony
  8. Hi Ian & Sue, Welcome back to KOG, you certainly have been putting some K’s on your new tug traipsing around our beautiful country. It would be great if you could attend the gathering at Kilkivan, it’s only just down the road for you....lol. It promises to be very informative & fun with the theme of ‘Travel Safely.’ Cu Down the road, Tony
  9. G'day, Yes, a brass drift (preferably) or a steel punch.....some hub castings have a two opposite recess's for easier bearing cone removal....& some dont,..... bet you a $ yours doesn't! If you don't, just persevere with the punch just taking 'nibbles' at the cone ....you'll sort it. When you have got the old cone out clean the seat in the hub so the new cone seats properly. Good luck with your project. Cheers & beers Tony PS .........when you buy your new bearings & seals, buy another 'spare set' or if old bearings are OK (one wheel) put inside a sturdy ziplock bag and store safely in the van....Murphy's Law if you have a set you'll never need them when your travelling....don't forget the grease either (High Temp/Extreme pressure)
  10. All good now....thanks Chris
  11. G'Day Tony, I have been using these aftermarket brake assemblies on my van & also vans that I service for many years with NO trouble from the std magnets. I am aware of the 'off road' magnets but could not justify the added cost. That's my experience anyway.....your call. So important to adjust the brakes correctly (bendix electric) screw adjuster up till wheel locks then back off 'twelve clicks' ! Cheers Tony
  12. Chris, I believe there is a problem with the attachment....its unreadable.😓
  13. Welcome to KOG David & Kerry, You certainly have been giving your new van a good run, trusting it is delivering all that you both expected. The inclusions (of your van) you have briefly described sound great, be great to it off at Kilkivan......hoping you can make it, promises to be a great gathering. Travel safe, Tony
