I HAVE JUST JOINED YOUR GROUP AND WHAT A FOUNTAIN OF KNOWLEDGE YOU ALL ARE. MY QUESTIONS ARE.. PLEASE ADVISE WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS SET UP I AM THINKING OF GETTING. I ALREADY HAVE A 2000 AUTO JACKAROO AND A CAMP-O-MATIC CAMPER TRAILER. FOR REFRIDGERATION I AM THINKING OF A 60 LITRE TRAILBLAZA AND A SMALL HONDA GEN. SET. ON THE TRAILER I HAVE TWO HEAVY DUTY BATTERIES THAT WILL RUN THE FRIDGE WHEN CAMPING AND THE JACK. WILL CHARGE THEM WHEN RUNNING. THE GEN WILL THEN CHARGE THEM WHEN WE ARE CAMPING FOR SOME TIME. TRAILBLAZA ADVISED NOT TO RUN FRIDGE STRAIGHT OFF GEN. I HAVE JUST COME BACK FROM A 2000 K DRIVE AND THE JACKAROO GAVE ME 7.8 K/L WHICH I THOUGHT MIGHT INTEREST OTHER OWNERS

Sound s good
I ahve a 70 ltre waeco and run it 2 lights and my computor off a 1kva honda inverter. they use 2 lt of unleaded in 6-8 hours .you will not need the batteries as with a 30 ft lead and turn the exhaust awy from camp you dont here the thing in the bush.
the honda wont run 12 volt gear but has a 12 v charger attachment, great in a n emergency

THANKS FOR THAT, BUT AS I ALREADY HAVE THE BATTERIES I WILL USE THEM AND THE GEN SET IS THERE JUST TO CHARGE THEM, NOT TO RUN LIGHTS ETC. OUR WHOLE CAMP IS SET UP FOR 12V. I HEARD(JUST SLIGHTLY) A HONDA 1KVA AT THE CAMPING SHOW AND IT WAS EXTREMLEY QUIET. I CAN HAVE IT ON A EXTENSION LEAD TO FURTHER QUIETEN IT DOWN. THANKS FOR THE IMPUT.

Nobby
just be cuatous about placing you geni to far from your camp as i know of several inserdences where they have been stolen
while they were running & the camp was occupied by the time every body got torches to see why geni had stop it was long gone
