Drive away awning

What recommendations are there for drive away awnings? We currently have the Quechua base seconds but that has gone the distance so we are looking for a replacement. Must be suitable for both a splitty and a bay.

thanks

Re: Fuel cut off solenoid - where and how?

This maybe a silly question but why do you need one? If you have a mechanical pump this stops the fuel when the ignition is switched off. I understand the solenoid is connected to a fire extinguisher but if your extinguisher is not electric once again why do you need one?

Refillable gas bottles

Has anyone used one of the refillable gas bottles on the market? Or any advice on them?
Thinking of getting one for the Propex heater and for cooking in the van.
It should work out cheaper in the long run if we use the heater regularly over the winter months.

Wheel alignment

For those of us who have lowered buses how do you manage to have the bus tracked?
The traditional tracking gauges won’t fit over the rear wheels.

Propex heater

Can anyone identify or does anyone have a wiring diagram for this control module. I.e. what coloured wire goes where.

Re: Wheel base measurement

Thought so.
Mine was measuring 2425 and scrubbing the tread off the inside of the tyre.

Wheel base measurement

This may seem a daft question but bare with me. The dimensions from centre front hub to centre rear hub is shown as 2400mm standard with reduction boxes. But what is the dimensions for a bus with a straight axle conversion? Are they the same.

Straight axle

Does anyone have the measurements for the spring plates adapters? The ones to extend the length of the tubes.
I have lost the plans.
Thanks
