Poor internet up here and first time been able to open the images. 

That is one very serious battery system.  Nearly three times the three times the useable energy than my current AGM’s. Well done.

What are you looking at running off the inverter, appliance wise??

Hi Derek not sure but the microwave will be the max just in in case it is needed. Have a small 150 watt that operate through the 12 volt plug for Mollys computer. Just took the chance to install while we had the chance. A 3000 watt is too big to fit in.

Will be great to head off knowing we will not be having power problems. Cheers Robert

Can not drain the water tanks unless you pump out which still leaves a fair bit in. Installed a couple of solenoid valves in a fitting and installed. Now waiting on the switch panel and will have it wired up.

Last of the modifications for the time being. In for a day procedure tomorrow, another series of injections up the spine to stop the nerve pain. Last lot was good but has now worn off and the 24/7 pain has returned. Will be a month or 6 we3ks doing nothing if it works. Cheers Robert

Are you going to put some sort of covering over it. Looks a bit vulnerable from rocks throwing up.

Another job for another day mate will not be able to get under for a few weeks until the back settles down. Will not have the fittings in the end of the valve in while travelling.

Aways feared being overweight with the ute, know the van with minimum in is at its maximum GTM and BW. Do not want to risk the fines they will start issuing.

Yesterday had the GVM and GCM upgraded by Lovells atEdward Town. Very professional people, quite happy with their work. So the figures are


INCREASE

GVM.  300kg.    3500. Kg
TOW.  300kg
GCM.  600 kg.   6600 kg
Rear Axle 170 kg

This will allow us to carry what we want with no fear of being overweight. As it is I remove gear we do not use as there is always something else you think you do need.

With the increase talk of caravan tow licenses and states pulling people over to weigh it is better to be safe than leaving a pile of gear by the road and a hefty sum in the states cofferes. Cheers Robert.

More caravanners should think like you do Robert.
So many rigs that we see must be overweight.
