    Help troubleshooting my 12v system please

    Charge your starter battery and leave it disconnected from the system to see if it holds charge, a good chance it is done and the solar panel has been hiding that up until now

    Air compressor question

    From recollection the ARB twin is a 100% duty cycle. The other good feature with them is they are two independently wired single compressors joined with a manifold so if one were to fail you still can use the compressor

    The long slow FG build!

    I would rather bed them in a polyurethane adhesive like Sika or Simpsons. Primarily because it will prevent rubbing between the two surfaces or rattling later on but also it will be so much easier. If you think it needs more bonding surface contact you could cut some flat bar and fit like your...

    How to trickle charge starter battery from house battery set up?

    The manufacture of my Lithium battery does not recommend me connecting any other battery with it other than another identical one. They don’t even recommend a different size lithium of their own brand can be connected to it. I know this because I wanted to increase my capacity and they were out...

    Just FYI I haven’t tried it myself but others who are interested in them are saying 110-120k AU when you spec one up on our local configurator. A bit of coin to drop on an untested vehicle

    INEOS Grenadier

    One very positive attribute of the Gren is how they have made there parts and service support information available to everyone so you are not at the mercy of getting to a dealership to sort an issue like you are with say a ND. That may not be a big deal for some but it is gold for other users.

    INEOS Grenadier

    Yes the Ineos would need to prove itself before I would get onboard with them but I know other experienced overlanders, one with a LC200 that is interested in one as his next vehicle. The biggest design concern raised is their small fuel capacity and no option for a long range tank and the lack...
