  1. Hi Bryan, Is this what your referring to.... https://www.purpleline.com.au/ ??? Thinking that they may be of benefit on a 'black top only' type van, but doubting their use on an off road van due to their positioning. Cheers Tony
  2. Greetings one & all, Wow, what a crazy start to this year, it has been. Fires, COVID-19 & other silly stuff going on around most of the world. Planning is underway for this years Christmas Gathering & AGM. It will be held again at the popular Kilkivan Bush & Caravan Park! Dates to put in your diary are 2nd - 8th November 2020. Presentations from informative & caravan related speakers are being secured & locked into a full on fun programme. At this stage there isn't a 'theme' for this years gathering......who would like to suggest a theme? Do you have any suggestions on speakers or demonstrations you would like to see or hear about at this years gathering?? I have (some) speakers secured already......but have a couple of spots to fill.....I need suggestions please!!! This is your gathering make it fun & informative, for yourself & every other Kedron owner! Registrations & programme details will be announced mid July. Last year we had 54 vans in attendance, NO reason we cant have MORE this year. Lock in those dates 2nd - 8th November 2020. Cheers & travel safe Tony. PS. Remember there are no strangers in the 'Kedron' family....only friends you haven't met yet!
  3. Have fun....stay safe.

  6. Hi Katrina, 'My two bobs worth'..... You have a very capable tow vehicle vehicle there & with a Kedron hooked up to it you will be travelling first class & be the envy of many. The first three items on your list are very worthwhile & really will enhance your overall experience of your Toyota ownership. Re, the fitting of the extra fuel filter there are many 'arguments' about fitting the auxiliary filter before or after the 'factory' filter.....seriously consider having it fitted before the 'factory' filter. Your vehicle has a price tag of about 100k and probably not much older than twelve months if that, I (personally) would have serious reservations doing significant engine/transmission upgrades while you still are in the early part of your Toyota warranty, doing a remap, intercooler & torque converter 'upgrades', you could have serious disappointments from Toyota denying (possible, although highly unlikely) claims on engine, transmission & driveline. Hoping we meet up one day at a gathering or somewhere down the road. Travel safe Tony H
  7. G'day Westy, I purchased mine at the Big Green Shed (Bunnings)....you'll find it in the door/window seal aisle. Cheers

    Lay up cover

    Thanks for the input guys, I was only suggesting you check with your insurers to see if they can assist.... For those who are considering checking prices and policies coverage from other insurers, make sure you get a price from WFI and do your homework. I HAVE NO affiliation with WFI other than being a customer of theirs....unfortunately they don't offer 'lay up' cover either!

    Lay up cover

    Hi all, Trusting this finds you all safe & happy (as happy as you can be in these troubling times) Just a suggestion......check with you van insurers to see if they will offer 'lay up' cover.....as we I'm sure as hell, won't be using our vans for at least the next six months....might save you a few $'s Cheers & stay safe Tony

    I'd be considering doing a couple more laps of that beautiful island....there'd have to be many places you haven't been! I reckon there would be worse places to be stuck! Stay safe
  12. Hi Robert, That is called a senior moment.....happy to hear your sorted! Travel safe....there are idiots out there (in NO way referencing to you.....lol) Tony
  13. Hi, I have been using Kogan for a while now, whilst not really top shelf quality they work well and the sound is acceptable considering the small speakers. Very limited range in 12 volt TV's (regardless of who's name is stuck on the case) https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-24-led-tv-series-5-dh5000/ https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-24-smart-led-tv-series-7-eh7500/ https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-24-led-tv-dvd-combo-series-6-eh6000/ ***this is the one I have*** Cheers & good viewing Travel safe.

  14. Hi Ian and Lyn, As Chris says above, welcome to the Kedron Owners Group (KOG). Hoping our paths may cross sometime in the future, our next gatherings later this month... @ Bendella (Nowra area) & in May at Finch Hatton (Mackay), any chance we could see you @ either of these? Make sure you pencil in the Christmas gathering @ Kilkivan in early November.!! Have a look @ the Gatherings & Trips Forum. Travel safe...cu down the road, Tony H
  15. Welcome Scott & Cheryl, Great to hear of your 'Kedron' experience at Kenilworth. Hopefully you may be able to attend the gathering at Bendeela or the May Muster at Pioneer Valley Showgrounds, Finch Hatton. (near Mackay) Have a look at the Trips & Gatherings page. Travel safe Tony
  16. Hi John, What do you mean 'hunting'? Cheers Tony
  17. Your participation in this survey, Iโ€™m sure would be appreciated. Travel safe You may be aware that last week, the CMCA, were awarded a grant of $1.1m to implement a road safety education campaign for RV travellers. In discussions with Richard Barwick (CEO of CMCA), he would like to see as many RV travellers as possible benefit from this grant. As a first step, affiliated club members are being encouraged to complete a simple survey which will inform how and where the grant money will be directed. The link to the survey can be found at Road Safety Survey Through RV Clubs Australia, affiliated club members will be kept informed when the RV Road Safety education program is being rolled out. I would encourage as many affiliated club members as possible to complete the survey. It only takes a few minutes to complete and is anonymous.

  18. Four of the finest Reserves in the Australian Army, my Blaze Aid team had the pleasure and honour of working with them. We (my Blaze Aid team & these guys) completed 363 meters of new fencing yesterday ......it was was long hot day with many laughs and fun. Chris (blue bandanna) is the property owner. Thanks guys for your service!
  19. Paul & Betty, Welcome to KOG. Yes it will seem to be loooong time from day of order to day of delivery........but time will pass quickly. There is lots of info on these pages/website. Should you have any questions donโ€™t hesitate to ask. Looking forward to meeting you & Betty on the road or a gathering .....soon Travel safe. Tony
  20. Looks like a very neat installation Rod, good to see those โ€˜fatโ€™ cables! Going to lithium are you planning on fitting a bigger inverter? With a 1000w unit you will only be able to use a VERY small toaster or VERY small electric jug & NOT together! But then you may only want to run a CPAP machine which that inverter will do with ease. Sorry to rain on your parade. Cheers Tony

  23. Hi all, Just touching base, Annie & I would like to wish you all the most wonderful Australia Day ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ For the last two weeks we have been staying at Willawarrin (just west of Kempsey) Pony Club, which is the โ€˜base campโ€™ for the local โ€˜Blaze Aidโ€™ team. This area was razed by bushfires on 9/11 (......last, bit ironic) The devastation and stories you hear and see from the locals is heartbreaking! The sight of the fires trail and sometimes random actions on adjacent properties is something to behold. During our time here I been out most days, with other willing volunteers, repairing and rebuilding property fences, yes it has been at times heavy, hard work. But you only do what you are comfortable with. There is great comrade in the camp with fellow volunteers. You are given three meals a day, (donโ€™t come here if you want loose weight), early starts each day with usually an early exit to bed. Annie has been volunteering in the kitchen along with others preparing all the sustenance to keep us all feed.....yummo, while others have been working on admin. We are staying in our van, with power and water supplied (not sure if this is available at all camps). Can I suggest you go to www.blazeaid.com.au have a look at the website and find a โ€˜campโ€™ in an area that suits you.....give a day, a week or whatever to this very worthy cause. A couple of days ago we had a contingent of Australian Army regulars & reservists arrive here at camp (a really great bunch of guys) it has been a wonderful experience working along side them doing the fencing and sharing a meal together.....wonderful way to spend Oz day! You should see the โ€˜toysโ€™ they brought with them that unfortunately we canโ€™t play with.....thank you guys for your service! Have a great Australia Day ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ and remember www.blazeaid.com.au Travel safe.....there are idiots out there.....
