  1. Once again welcome to the forum and the Kedron Family!! Sorry to hear that you are having so many problems with your new van. I hope that these will all be resolved for you in due course. The team at Kedron have always been very helpful and they have always fixed any issues we have had. Please continue to participate on the forum. Hope we see you at a gathering soon. Cathy & Greg
  2. Hi There What a lovely looking van there! Sure you will enjoy all your travels in that. Cathy
  3. Hi Neville, Try East Coast Bull Bars, they supply bulbar for the Silverado off the shelf so I am sure they will have something. Failing that 'TuFF Bulbar' at Toowoomba will build you a fantastic bull bar but are a bit dearer. Cheers Greg & Cathy
  4. Hi All We had problems with wallowing so installed air bags on 2013 Chev. This made it a little too rigid so we bought the air safe hitch which has reduced the shock transfer between the TE and the Chev making the ride extremely comfortable.
  5. Hi Colin Apparently it is because your vehicles are registered in the business name and not privately - buggar Cathy
  6. http://www.qld.gov.au/transport/buying/vehicleinspection/periodicinspection/vehicletypes/index.html Hi Colin This is all very confusing. Have a look at the page on the above link and tell me what you understand from it. Cathy
  7. Hi Colin As you know we had our van done as well earlier this year and when the rego was due in September, it came with a certificate of inspection that had to be completed by an authorised inspection station and then included with the paperwork for renewal. This meant we couldn't pay online and had to attend the DMR office. Hope this info doesn't just relate to you cause you are in FNQ. Cathy and Greg
  8. Well it is a changing world and I must admit to a few wrinkles myself. When i was much younger my interests were different, it is amazing how much the (Hi Ho) Chevy has taken my interest these days.... oh dear I am getting old...lol We are really happy with the Chevy and Colin we are sure you will be as well. Cheers Greg & Cathy
  9. Hi Colin Glad to hear you are home safe. Our Hi Ho is tucked up in the shed right now, but is itching to get back on the road. Cathy & Greg
  10. Hi all, It looks like Colin might be joining the growing Chevy clan. Well good onya! I must say we are rapt with ours and wish we had made the change sooner. I can't really add much to the conversation except to say in relation to the length that we always parked the Tojo well away from the maddening crowd so doing the same with the Silverado is no big thing. We are fortunate that it is not our daily driver so the inconvenience when we are on the road does not bother us to much, the towing power well and truly makes up for it. Cheers Greg & Cathy
  11. Hi Everyone We also wish everyone a safe trip. Disappointed that we won't be there to enjoy the company of friends we made on our last adventure. We are currently in Ballarat and making our way home now. Cathy and Greg
  12. Hi Jk We have just had our van weight upgraded and was interested to know where you had your inspection carried out for the rego. Current rego is not due till Sept. Greg & Cathy
  13. Hi Russ What time of year were you in SA? We are about to head off to that neck of the woods on 20th March. Really enjoyed reading your blog and can't wait to visit these great places. Greg & Cathy
  14. Hi Colin It is our intention to bring Tibby with us this time. So you may have travelling companions to Clare valley!! Cathy & Greg
  15. Hi Andrew & Sal We have been home for 8 days now and have spent 6 of those trying to get the van clean. Nowhere near where we want it to be yet. Have not even started on the cruiser yet. We have stripped the van of everything that can be removed on the outside and today all the curtains were washed. Need to get as much done as possible over the next week as it goes to Brendale for a service and to have those repairs done. I think Greg has bought every cleaning product known to man in an effort to get it clean. If it had just not rained on that last travel day it would have been a lot easier but as you have also probably discovered it is like trying to remove cement. Even the gurney won't blow it off. Hope you guys are well and all the family things are now sorted. Cathy & Greg
  16. Hi Everyone You will probably be thinking this is late notice asking this question, but has any one had any trouble with the foam seal in their vacuum sealer machine? I have had mine for less than 6 months and has done little work but was wanting to get the last of my goodies ready for the biggie. How do i explain my problem - well it is not sucking the air out of the bag so not sealing properly. I am not placing over the hole etc. The foam seal seems to have a low part in one side and the air is escaping. I have contacted primus and they were very good about sending me a new one but by the time it comes from Melbourne (only rang them yesterday) we will be well and truly on our way. We leave here Tuesday morning. Just wondering if anyone had this same experience and if you had found a quick fix for the short term? Only 3 sleeps to go now for us!! Cathy & Greg
  17. Hi Ann Yes I have some lock n lock but have ordered more. Have you already done this trip? Cathy
  18. Hi Colin and Everyone Else Thanks for all your suggestions re the corrugated roads. We have not bought another gas bottle but was interested to hear what your thoughts might be on this. I am currently getting all my containers organised for pantry goods and Greg is going to look at the drawer and door locks as you have suggested. Not too long to go now. We will be leaving home around mid May to get to Winton in time to meet up with everyone. Cathy & Greg
  19. HI Colin Sounds like your furkids are very adept on the travel scene. Miss Tibby is fairly laid back and likes to take it pretty easy. She is 4 years old but is already in retired mode. You know - tired yesterday and retired today!! On another subject though - does anyone take an extra gas bottle with them on these trips? In addition to the 2 we already carry on the TE, we were wondering if there might be a need to carry a 3rd? Would also like some ideas on how to pack things for the trip over the corrugated roads. Having never travelled these roads previously I am not sure what to expect. I have seen some videos etc of other peoples travels but I am sure that the experienced travellers on this trip would have plenty of ideas for us newbies. Thanks in advance for your comments Cathy and Greg
  20. Hi Everyone Just wondering who else will be bringing their furkids on the Outback Way? I know Moet and Cherie will be there and we are bringing Tibby. Good idea about the boots. Might have to look into them. Those ants are pretty mean when they bite!! Cathy & Greg
  21. We are getting excited now...... Just had to put the new wheel covers on to make it seem real!! Look Great don't they? Cathy & Greg
  22. Hi, Actually for many years I just used a match, but I gave up smoking about 10 years ago... so that is why I bought the ARB deflator, but there is definitely no magic to it and the match would work just as well! Cheers Greg
  23. Hi, No, you have to stop letting the air out when you see the level you want on the gauge. But as I said earlier, the gauge only reads accurately when you stop letting out the air. I am happy for you to give mine a try before you decide to buy one. I believe there might be a short trip to Standown Park, if you are going to that I might see you there. Cheers Greg
  24. Hi I have attached a photo of the ARB unit (well I have tried to!). the only real drawback to the unit is that you cannot read the gauge accurately while the tyre is deflating, you have to stop read the gauge and continue. Not a real hassle though Cheers Greg
  25. Hi I have an ARB deflator and is seems to work ok. It has a gauge attached and you just let the air out to the desired level by pushing the release rod. Cheers Greg
