Just pick up my new Patrol TI had ARB fit a Twine showe, 200 k down the road all power was lost, looks like the hose came off the outlet from the heat exchanger and had similar problems really peeeeeeeeed offfffff truck back in the workshop untill monday, this one has been fitted along site the radiater and would seem that it is very hard to get at to check on hoses glad i was on the blacktop, any ideas where it is best to relocate.

Just a thought - are you really that desperate for a shower? If you are you can get portable units that in no way impinge on the workings of your car!

Brian
With 2.8 GU dual batteries etc had no room for heat exchanger, tried everything.
It is now safely bolted to a flange inside the alloy bullbar.Solved problem of running hoses with no kinks and all hose fittings are accessable.

Do your self a favour and relocate it to under the door sill along side the chassis, plenty of room for service/maintenance/etc, less cluter in engine bay.

I have mine fitted to the firewall utilising an existing stud and threaded rivets which is factory fitted for placement of the intercooler. It has been to the cape and back with no issues with it coming loose. This is on a 4.2td ST wagon. Not sure of the TI setup but I do not think it would be an issuee.
If you want to e-mail me Brian I can supply a picture of it installed. It is a great accessory to have and the backup is second to none from John at Twine.
