  1. Hi John, We are currently on our third Kedron and have been to all of the places you wish to visit in confidence, safety and without any real problems. I agree with Merv that one of the key differentials between Kedron and other vans is the quality of the after sales service, it's just like we all are part of the Gall family. You can't go wrong with a Kedron. Happy Caravanning Brian
  2. Hi Goodys, Just logged on after a short absence. Our control unit has 3 separate monitors. The drinking water is at the rear of the van. When we fill the tanks we can direct water to any tank through individual in-line taps located under the fridge then when we want to pump water from the front two tanks we have separate taps under the sink which share the same pump. The system was put together by the great guys at Kedron. I note I mentioned toilet in my earlier post but it has its own water supply and isn't part of the system. Brian
  3. Hi Goody's, Our van is set up with 3x100 litre tanks with separate inputs for each tank and then each tank is individually monitored. One tank is for drinking water and the other two are for showers/wash up/toilet/hot water. The water tank has a stand alone pump and the other two go through a separate pump. Each tank has a separate input and output valve to control the flow of water when they are being filled and when we are drawing water from them so we always know with a reasonable degree of accuracy the situation with all the tanks. No doubt the boys in Ashley's service departme
  4. The "scalies" as we call them have been working the Qld roads for a number of years. We have been pulled over twice towing a 20ft ATV2 with our 100 series. The first time was at Cunnamulla where they got us on the way in and then tried to put us back over the scales two days later on the way out. The second time we were pulled up was in Kilcoy where they also had a few trucks pulled over. On both occasions we didn't have any problems. I am only too happy to have these guys pull over every van on the road to weed out the few that overload their units as it can only make it a safer place fo
  5. We have just returned from 10 months on the road and now have the job of cleaning up the van and doing a few repairs. Thanks to everyone for their comments I will head down to Supercheap/Autobarn in the next couple of days Brian
  6. Rob, I am interested to learn how you go. After the last 9 months on the road with many rough and dusty tracks a few of our "brown" blinds are the same and I was contemplating new screen wire but a silicon fix has more appeal. Brian
  7. G'day Merv, We have been on the road for the last 9 months and have ended up with most windows scratched. What is the "purple polish" you mention. We have been told to try Jiff. Brian
  8. Hi Neville, Thanks for that. It brings both options back onto an even keel. When I discussed lithium with Kedron they were still working out their numbers but said the incremental cost of lithium above AGM would be in the vicinity of $2,000. This was for the enerdrive system which includes a new charger, battery monitor and I think a controller but you should contact David and get the correct information. If AGM v’s Lithium are level pegging when I do my research then I will probably still favour Lithium. I spoke to a guy I met on this trip who has had 600ah lithium installed for 6 years.
  9. This topic must eventually be of interest to all Kedron owners as batteries are critical to those of us that love the outback. It's a real pity if the forum loses someone with Russ' experience so if it is the last we have heard I wish he and Sue all the best. I sometimes have problems with the technical details but I have no problem with understanding financial comparisons. One key point to remember with any financial comparison is that they should be looked at over comparative lifetimes. If one option has a lifecycle of 4yrs and the other a lifecycle of at least 15yrs then this must be a
  10. Our cap has also split in a number of places, in fact it seems that it is just breaking down. I believe it is a problem with the quality of material used in manufacture. Many of the Camec products fitted in our van that are exposed to sunlight have deteriorated. It appears that they haven’t been manufactured to cope with the UV level in OZ. We have been on the road since the end of Feb so I was forced to carry out repairs with a new product called "Rapid Fix" which comprises a powder and a liquid like super glue but when mixed with the powder they claim it is similar to welding the plasti
  11. Hi 32 Kev, After much deliberation we have decided to change our itinerary and will now not be hitting SA until sometime around September so I imagine this will make a difference to fishing scene but we will still spend about 6 weeks there including a lot of fishing. I do have a GPS but on this trip we won't be taking the tinnie but will still be interested in how you go as we will probably get back down there in the earlier part of the year at some future date. We can always be contacted on our email at briandawnroberts@bigpond.com Good luck with your trip and fishing adventures and sa
  12. Hi 32KEV, Trust you enjoy tight lines right through to your departure date in February. We plan to be in that vicinity March/April chasing the same species so if you can pass on experiences it could help us as our research to date hasn't been all that beneficial and there's nothing like getting good first hand feedback. Have a great trip and enjoy the fishing in NT Regards, Brian
  13. Hi Chris, Thanks for the update. Ashley is good value and knows his way around all the vans, it's good to see the Gall Bros taking on family members of employees in new positions, pretty hard to go wrong with those decisions. They have always known what they are doing with their business especially when it comes to looking after customers. I am confident that all Kedron owners will continue to enjoy the high quality of service that we are used to so I look forward to talking to Loryn/Ashley in the early new year. Regards, Brian
  14. Hi Lea & Rick, Aussie House Sitters turned out to be a good option. We placed an ad and were inundated with responses, I had to close down the thread after 1/2 day then sort through them all, respond to everyone, organise interviews with those we shortlisted then make our final selection. All that we need to do now is get everything ready for our trip which isn't such a bad task. First on the list is a phone call to Tom and organise a detailed service. Many thanks for your input. Brian
  15. Hi John & Jo, I only wish we could enjoy the same arrangements as it sounds like the ideal set up. Good luck to you both and enjoy your travels. Brian
