Re: Blade Fuse Calculation for 12v Auxiliary System

I agree 100% with Tinus "try buy good quality stuff and if it pulls 1 amp and is permanent installed like led strips put a local 2 amp inline by the strip" I like to put those glass tube inline fuses (I like the 1, 2 and 5 amp fuses) on just about every device I plug into my battery system. Very few...

Re: Auto lock on doors

Peter, maybe fit a microswitch to you GQ's barn door and link it to the doirs' system. You will not only have it alarm able but will be able to set up a ceiling light for when you open the barn door. I did exactly that on my Safari that had a window that lifted up before you could open the lower doo...

Re: Blade Fuse Calculation for 12v Auxiliary System

I follow the lead of the suppliers. National Luna are experts in the field of dual battery charging systems and they make specialised fuse holders for 50 and 100 amp fuses. They also supply these two aperage fuses. I therefore use these (100 amps between the main battery and the solenoid and 50 amp ...

Re: Auto lock on doors

Yep, exactly what I did, left a working lock on the barn door, but it leaves that vulnerable now. There must be a way to fit a hidden switch somewherel that will be your failsafe option. It will preferably also work off the dual battery system. Another option is a place where one can jumper the main...

Re: Ordered double din split screen unit

I fitted the unit with a reverse camera in the Patrol and it works perfectly. I fitted a second camera to take the place of my rear view mirror. The drawer system in the Partol fills the rear to the roof. This second camera works with a switch on the dash. It displays on the screen of the unit. My P...

Re: Auto lock on doors

My 2008 3.0 Di came with central locking but no alarm. I only found this out when my vehicle's left front door lock was forced and my GPS stolen. I was until then, under the impression that it came factory fitted with an integrated alarm/central locking system. Also, I never got the second key for m...

Re: Drawer systems for patrols

Hi Sweetlips Here it is: https://www.patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=7425 I bolted two 50mm wide, 5mm thick metal strips, running from left to right of the back. They are bolted to the existing tie-downs in the vehicle, to which the packing system is bolted. No holes were drilled into the body ...
