The work on the BT50 is coming along nicely
Put a couple of van style powerpoints on the back. One for 240v power in and the other from the inverter to the outside.
Gadgets are slowly getting sorted.
Nearly ready for a run to the Vic border to wave to Crusty. 8-)8-)

Enerdrive is not cheap, but I think it is well priced for what you get and I think much better value for money than Redarc.
As you said, Redarc is ridiculoulsy overpriced,
All hooked up now and things seem to be working well. I need to read the books now to make sure I have the settings 100% correct.
The beauty of the Enerdrive battery charger is that it can charge three seperate banks of batteries at the same time and that includes Lithium.

All up and running and currently parked in a caravan park in Clinton, (small town on Yorke Peninsula)
We are away for about ten days and then head home.
Very impressed with the way the BT50 tows. Very comfortable and seems to do the job easily. I will need to strengthen the rear springs up a bit when we get back but it's nothing too drastic. Not sure about the airbags they put in, might just put another leaf in the springs.

It is nice to be out and about if I'm allowed to say that ??

I don't mind.....;).........................
Go for a new set of springs, usually they are a 7 pack with greasable pins, adding an extra leaf to the originals wouldn't really do much in the long run unless you went for a hot reset of the whole pack...... if you DiY and do the front get the strut made up, bustards to try yourself......

I hear you Drover. I don't think I'll be doing the struts myself. Happy to let someone else lose the bark and use terrible words.
Thanks for the info on the springs. I'll look into that when I get home.

Isn't it funny how some people get so touchy ?? 8-)8-)

Camped at a place called Barker's Rocks. It's about half way down the Yorke Peninsula on the western side.
The Yorke Peninsula council have a scheme where you can buy a permit to Bush Camp for $10 per night or $50 for 7 days.
The longer you buy the permit for, the cheaper it gets. There are certain areas where you can camp and they are all marked out on a map, which you can download. Some of the sites have water tanks and some have long drops, but other than that, you have to be self contained. You can camp for four weeks for the price of three, $150.00 Obviously not as good as free but...............................
Personally, I think it is bucking frilliant

Here we are at Ardrossan, on a lookout above the town. The lookout is set on top of the overburden from the dolomite mine which is behind us.
The ship is loading Dolomite.
