  1. Hi Tony, I think you are one lucky dude, we no doubt all have our stories, I have RACQ full road side assist and have had for many years covering many vehicles i have owned, my Chevy Silverado broke down a couple of years ago RACQ had a local tilt tray truck come and take it to a repair center, shortly after they contacted me and said they have just learnt that the Chevy had a GVM of 4.5ton and their policy will not cover that weight, they said they would cover the vehicle this time and i had to call in and see them and either cancel this cover or transfer it to my other small vehicle. 32KEV

    Thank you all for your replies, it sounds like the fans run while the charger is on so I will have to live with that, yes I did put it in my vehicle to charge 2x 120ah AGM when on grid or gen power, happy travels. 32Kev

    Having concerns on a 40amp centaur battery charger, I purchased this charger second hand to put in my vehicle, it is a 2008 model and I was told it was in working order, hooked it up and it doe's everything right, the thing I am concerned about is from when the charger is turned on and through to float mode, the two cooling fans continue running never stop even on 4 degree nights. I took the load off the batteries so the charger would not start charging, but the fans still kept going, can anyone shed some light on this for me please. 32 KEV
  5. Hi Nev, Thanks for the advise, in brief I will fill you in on my battery failings. My ATV is just over 8 years old, we live in our van and our batteries survive 10 months of the year on solar and generator, we run compressor caravan fridge, 76 litre national luna freezer, a 40 litre Engel freezer, and a 32 litre Engle fridge on the very rare occasion have the 4x120ah AGM caravan batteries fallen below 12.3V. I also have 2x 120AH AGM batteries in the vehicle, and they link up to the van at night. Our first set of Ritar batteries lasted 34 months, our second set of Ritar batteries lasted 36 months, this latest set (not Ritar) are at 29 months, and at the moment still OK. So you can see why I am a little concerned about this last set of batteries, I am not a wiz on batteries but I am led to believe that a battery has so many cycles it can do before it will fail, mine in 12 months do a minimum of 300 cycles, so I guess about 2.5 years is not to bad. Keeping fingers X Cheers 32 Kev
  6. Hi Russnsue, Chris and Lynn, A question relating to the Sterling Power 60 amp Charger. As I said earlier I fitted this charger to my van because it had the generic Lithium charge on it. As my AGM are now over two years old, (this is my third set) and I getting worried that I will have to replace them shortly, so time for me to gather more information. Can the Sterling charger charge lithium batteries as is, or do you have to have other bits and pieces of electrical equipment. If you fellas could help me out with what I have to do, and what I need to purchase to change to Lithium when the time comes, I wont be spending weeks, or months trying to gather the information and bits and pieces needed to change over. Hey Russ, I may have missed it but have you had an update on the lithium batteries since the 2 years, and Chris how are your lithium batteries going, still pleased with them I hope. Looking forward to your replies. 32 Kev
  7. Hi Curley, What Jacky Jacky has said sounds right, there is another thing to look for should all else fails. I had my front load pulled down for other reasons and repaired, and while the machine was out of the van I tested it, and yes it did the same as you have stated, and I had the drain hose higher than the washer, so I called the repairer and he called in and pulled the washer down, and he had forgot to plug a set of wires back in to a control box. Possibly this plug may have come loose, or the control box it plugs in to may have died. Just a thought. Cheers 32 Kev
  8. Hi again, have been out of internet service for a while and have just read your replies, thank you for your speedy response, have not had a chance to remove the window as yet but will try in the next few days, also the blue polish sounds the go will try it to. Cheers 32Kev
  9. Has anyone removed the tinted Perspex window from the frame in their van. A whirly wind hit mine when opened and pulled the top aluminium sections apart on one end and now difficult to close. There are four fixings holding the top aluminium strip to the window frame they are a bronze colour and don't look like screws or pop rivets, thought I would ask for advise before I do the wrong thing.

  10. Hi Sully, Just got back on the internet and read of your problem, mate I know how you feel same thing happened to me. I have a 2008 ATV and last year by accident noticed that the pipe fitted under the A frame for strength had broken off at the front of the A frame on both sides, I will add I have air bag suspension on the van and was towing with a 100 series land cruiser at the time. I contacted Kedron to see if they could shed some light on why this may have happened as my van has done no rough roads at all, although some of our sealed roads are worse, well Kedron did say they would gather info and get back to me, 12 months later still no word from them, I decided to not go through insurance company and have it done through an engineering place my self. It was then they discovered that my chassis had cracked on both sides also where if fixes to the van, had the repairs done and a stronger way of supporting the length of the A frame, total costs $1200. Cheers 32Kev
  11. Hi Leon, The canopies other readers have listed are quality canopies I looked at all these when I to was chasing one, and I went for Metalink canopy GXL their address is Palmwood Queensland and I found their canopies just a little stronger and the finish second to none. Have a look at Metalink when comparing quality and price, they to have extras to add that will blow your mind. Their website is www.metalink.net.au Cheers 32Kev

  13. Hi Nev & Penny, I will still be there in July so I will put you on the right track then. If you have not been there before, when you get to King Ash Bay fishing club you can stay at their camp grounds both powered and unpowered sites at reasonable rates and all facilities, or you can drive through the fishing club for a further 6 or so Km to Battern Point. Camp spots there you have to take pot luck as campers come and go all the time you would be very unlucky not to get a spot and when you arrive make yourself known and other campers usually know who is leaving so you would not have to wait long for a good spot. If you plan on staying for a while you can get water at King Ash Bay for a minimal amount and also use their facilities I will fill you in when I see you if you decide to stay at Battern Point. I have a 21ft Kedron ATV and a white Chev Silverado, look forward to having happy hour with you when you arrive. Cheers 32Kev have a good Christmas and new Year
  14. Hi Beejay, I will certainly give you any good spots I find while I am there, when I am about to leave Cowell I will leave info on the forum if you like, do you have a GPS ? that way I can give you coordinates. Cheers 32Kev and have a good Christmas and New Year.
  15. Chasing fishing spots or GPS marks for King George whiting, Snapper, Squid and Crabs at Cowell, I will be going there at the end of January 2015 and leaving start of February, staying at harbour view caravan park. Have not fished the Bay before only outside from Port Gibbon, so any help would be appreciated. Then I will be going to Battern Point in the Northern Territory, if anyone needs fishing info there I can help. Cheers 32KEV
