  1. The news of Kim Greenwood’s (Kimbo) passing is very saddening. As mentioned in previous posts he (& his wife Nerida) were founding members of the Kedron Owners Group (KOG). His passion for his family (including extended), & life generally is well known. Your memory will be remembered for a very long time and around many campfires. The thoughts and condolences of the Kedron Owners Group, goes to all of the Greenwood family at this sad time. Tony Heat President KOG
  2. Although I have only meet Kimbo & Nerida once, very early in our Kedron ‘life’ his friendship & assistance is long remembered. Thanks guys, travel safe and may the journey be not to rough.

  4. Greetings all, I trust this finds you in good health & spirits. For the past couple of weeks I have delayed this announcement, really hoping that we (all of Australia & the rest of the world) could see an end to this wretched COVID-19 virus. With the continuing cases in Victoria & NSW, closed QLD borders and severe quarantine/travel restrictions, we (the executive) have agreed that the proposed gathering at Kilkivan cannot go ahead in a safe manner like it has over the past few years. It is with GREAT reluctance that I have to inform you that the proposed Kedron Owners Group (KOG) gathering @ Kilkivan in November 2020 has been cancelled. Attendance from interstate members, would be non existent & members from Qld would/could be hesitant to attend. That being said, with anticipated attendance being very marginal, we have decided that this years Christmas Gathering is not viable! Five top line presenters, had already committed to this gathering, I sincerely hope they will appreciate this decision & will consider attending at a later date. Re: The AGM, we (KOG) have been in communication Queensland Office of Fair Trading- about 'Tenure of members of the management committee' and the effect of COVID-19 affecting the operation/management of 'Social Clubs' such as ours. The correspondence we have received from the Office of Fair Trading, indicates the we have a six month 'grace' period to hold an AGM from the originally proposed November 2020 date. With that in mind, we will keep ALL financial members up date, with news on a date, venue and what style (yet to be decided) we will conduct the AGM. In closing, I would like to remind all members who have NOT paid their renewal subs, they are NOW DUE! If you could attend to this as a priority, it would be very much appreciated, renewal notices were sent out over a month ago. Please, stay safe! Looking forward to seeing you down the road. Regards, Tony Heat. (President)
  5. G’day Richard & Tracey,, Caravan design and features is very much an individual choice. One of the great things in choosing a Kedron is the ability to personalise it. Can I suggest you let us know what you have put on your list of ‘wants’ for this build, so other readers of this post can contribute & possibly add to your ‘list’ advising you of their reasons. There are the basic essentials of course, but design & budget limits the final choice. Once you have taken delivery and used your ‘new baby’ over extended periods you will want to fine tune it with little extras....no risk! Cheers & looking forward to meeting you down the road one day soon. Tony H. PS.....as mentioned above a diesel heater is a MUST!
  6. 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
  7. Have fun....stay safe.

  9. A little check now is much better than a big cheque later!
  10. 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
  11. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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.

  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Hi John, What do you mean 'hunting'? Cheers Tony
  21. Your participation in this survey, I’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. Regards, Rin Klasen Director/Company Secretary/Public Officer National Association of Caravan Clubs Limited ABN 40 141 272 844
  22. 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!
  23. 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 don’t hesitate to ask. Looking forward to meeting you & Betty on the road or a gathering .....soon Travel safe. Tony
  24. Looks like a very neat installation Rod, good to see those ‘fat’ 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
