    New stuff mostly in,, Victron 100/50 installed, 2x200 watt solar panels, 2 x200ah itech lithiums, 3x2port usb wall warts, stand alone 230v inverter circuit, one double pole double outlet at the club lounge end to charge/run laptops and the same at the bedroom end to run cpap machine. Not a shadow to be seen anywhere and the victron connect app shows 12A coming in...

    Todays question is!

    What type of G4 aerial should I run on the roof?

    Something between mild and wild please...

    Right genny, right place right time, fair price. Too good to pass up.


    The problem was where to actually carry it. No-one local would extend the A-arm and though it would fit inside the shower... lugging it outside every time would be a pain.
    The rear was not really an option, at first. no-one really wants to put an extra 50kgs on the back bumper,, even if i could. but then I looked underneath and---

    the bar should literally just slide out
    Todays mission is to see if I have a socket that size and relocate that bar!

    any thoughts on how close to the tube end I can go? is crushing an issue?

    Good price on the genset
    I never cook inside the van, I use one of those little gas cookers for the billy and veggies and use the webberQ or the campfire for everything else.
