    It is factory. I haven't touched the axles or suspension other than fit electric brakes to the front axle.

    So a bit more done - have bought the 12 volt system into the 21st century with a new lithium battery and some shiny new Victron bits - a solar controller and a battery monitoring system so I can see what the new battery is up to.

    Out with the old - 400Ah of deep cycle batteries weighing in at over 120kg, and the old PWM charge controller.

    In with the new - 100Ah Lithium weighing in at 15Kg - For those that donít know, the Lithiumís capacity can be fully utilised whereas the lead acid batteries are good for around half their stated capacity depending on how you discharge them, worse than that if you hit them hard. The Lithiumís discharge is also linear no matter what load is applied.

    Solar panels yet to be connected - am waiting on an isolator to show up for this.

    Easy to read display with everything I need then some.

    And it connects via Bluetooth to an app - canít see me using this while camping but it does display trends and graphs etc so something to look over after a trip to see whatís been going on.

    I'll bet that you will use it. It's much more interesting than TV. Good system by the way.

    You will quickly change your mind.

    I too hate mobile phones but as more and more apps come along, my phone is now getting a hammering, and I still try not to use it as a phone.
