    That is quite interesting. I suppose given an inpit and putput matrix of car wide sensors and full EAS control then programming for all sorts of things is possible and it could even do many more complicated things than that. It would be fun to run custom programs like auto level on an angle etc

    Well...

    Funny you should say that. I am actually working on a unit (arduino most likely) that will be plugged in over the existing AES. Since I sleep in a RTT on top of the vehicle I plan to make a auto-level function that measures the angle of the car, the maximum available travel on each of the corners and the best option to level the car. ie. raising one corner and dropping another to be able to sleep level.

    As Lenon I believe once said though; life is what happened to me whilst I was busy making other plans, this has been on the bench for a while now but I do still intent on building it.

    Cheers,
    -P

    I just had a quick look, so its easy to program from a laptop or browser, a hardwired 'camp' button on the dash next to the EAS would be cool

    Sounds much like the "X-Lifter" unit

    Also the P38 has composite rear trailing arms locating the axle which resist twisting and limit body roll.

    Interesting, any idea what they are made of?

    The manual just says lightweight composite.
    I guess just a glass (or kevlar?) reinforced resin.

    X-lifter is not P38 compatible unfortunately but yeah, something like that
