Re: My life with the New Patrol Y 62

In Austrlalia, there seems to be an uptick in the use of the Y62 as a challanger to the LC200 in obstacle driving. It is kicking the 200s butt in most obstacles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8rEam4394E I have watched several of these videos now. It is quite clear that the traction control on th...

Re: Xplorer / GRX offgrid setup

From the little bit of google searching I did, it seems like the Hercules 200 is not a very capable system. Basically just a 220V charger. No 12V charger or charge controller and no built-in solar capability. In an off-grid situation, this will not ever get a deep-cycle (or lead crystal) battery ful...

Re: Xplorer / GRX offgrid setup

The fuze is good, but take that solenoid and throw it as far as you can. Those things waste power when they get old. The setup of the charging system in the caravan must be such that it either only accepts power when the car's engine is running, or if there is more than 12.8 Volt available. Either w...

Re: Xplorer / GRX offgrid setup

With regard to the car's system, unfortunately there is no shortcut. You need to crawl under the car and follow those wires from the Brad Harrison under the rear bumper to to see where they go. To my mind, you want them to go directly to the power output of the alternator (the little screw where the...
