    ESC in Van

    Hi,
    Hoping to pickup new (to me), Goldstream van (2018) next week which has ESC, Alko I believe. From the reading on this forum I have concluded that the system on the vogue will work ok with the van system on paved roads ? and that possibly on rougher unpaved roads I should disconnect it.
    Just looking for confirmation that this is the best current advice.
    Thanks in advance

    All the al ko system does is whack on a pre-determined braking effort to all van wheels when a large sway happens.
    This system is also powered by the tug. The Dexter system has its own onboard battery and works like more like DSC in a car.
    So yes I would switch it off off-road.
