Happy & Blessed Easter to all!

This business of taking an Ice Maker caravanning is new to me!

I must say that being an old type rough camper, I was not too keen, but as usual SWAMBO won and we took it last time.

Very handy, I must say and now it seems that it is a permanent take along.

It did get a bit scratched last time so I am lucky to have found a suitable carry bag from my favourite camping store.

It is a 'Port a Pottie' cover bag and fits pretty well, with some bubble wrap around it.

Price around R 250.00 which is around 10% of the price of an ice maker.

Not bad I thought!

Make ice in the freezer part at -15.

Use Goens, bought at Pep Home, which makes a round ice block, almost the size of a fowls egg, so they really last long in your drink.

In a normal glass you only need one or two.

They sell at R 17,99 for a set of four, so for 20 balls, it is the astounding sum of      R 89,95. The 20 balls fill an ordinary sized ice box.

I use a flask with a big opening as a glass, which keeps your drink cold on the inside, does not form condensation on the outside, so you can put your glass/mug/container down on the ground/sand, without sand/ground sticking to it. I know this is not to everyone's liking, but we are mobile and not really static travelers and the system works for us.

An ice machine would not fit into our set-up and the weight would also pose additional problems and we probably could probably not afford the ice machine either, so this information is meant for other poor travelers who do over land travel...

Ja Edge, I understand your method of camping and I agree, space & weight would be a problem. Personally I would prefer your method, but 'She who must be obeyed' wins. (almost every time)laughing

Those Goens sound like a great idea, definitely going to get some anyway. Thanks for the heads up. I wonder if they got the name from the game of marbles.

I also got a long rip-stop bag from them for firewood to go on the roof-rack.

It looks like it will take about 3 of those bundles you buy on the side of the road.

Stupid question Leon, but is it still connected to the supply?

I think you know that when some PC boards become corrupt, they reset when you disconnect for a minute or two.

We normally camp at a site without electricity and ice would be a great luxury we would love. Whatdoes a small ice machine cost?

My ys masjien het gekroak. Proses is uit volgorde uit.

Weet iemand dalk hoe om dit reg te maak

My machine se "full" liggie bly permanent aan, maar volg nog die regte sisteem.

Somstyds vergeet hy net om af te skakel wanneer die ys regtig vol is, maar werk nog 100.

Hy was baie handig gewees die afgelope 2-weke by Weesgerus.

Ons kamp nie sommer sonder die machine nie. Hy is ń moet om saam te ry.

As daar nie plek is nie, sorg ek dat ek plek maak vir hom.

John,

I just named them Goens, because they are bigger than marbles and Goens,

as I do not recall what they were called in their packaging. They are almost the size of a large fowls egg...

Ek het vir lank, en met groot moeite, ons Snowmaster ysmasjien saamgery tot hy gebreek het. Die agente vertel toe dat hy eitlik nie so gekarwei moet word nou. Nou staan hy by die huis en stof opgaar. Hy is in elk geval swaar om saam te ry. Ek dink dit is goedkoper om so eenkeer per maand n sakkie ys teen R15 te koop en in vrieskas te bêre. Gebruid dit mos net om die "beste van Ierland" so effens te verdun om die brand van die tong af te haal. 

Miskien kan die elektriese manne op die forum uitwerk hoeveel dit kos om een kilogram ys te maak en dit te vergelyk met koste om dit te koop.

Ons werk met ń pre-paid meter by die huis en is redelik baie gedissiplineerd daarop.

Gedurende die somer hardloop myne gereeld en die elektrisiteit gebruik is minimaal.

Dit is baie goedkoper om self te maak as om te koop.

Jy weet nooit watter gehalte water waarvan dit gemaak word nie.

As ek genoodsaak is om te koop, koop ek slegs by SPAR teen R 9/kg.

Julle laat my dink of ek ‘n ysmasjien moet aanskaf of nie. Ek kan my indink hoe nuttig dit kan wees. Maar erens moet mens ‘n lyn trek- kan nie elke moontlike gadget saam vat nie. Ek koop  maar daagliks ‘n sakkie of twee ys.  Hou so een-deride apart in my Engel vrieskas en gooi die res in koelboks. Maar oor tyd werk dit taamlik duur uit. Die Engel vat te lank om self ys te maak.

Water een sou julle aanbeveel? Een wat die vervoer kan hanteer en geskik is vir 2 mense. Ek verkies die bullet ys vorm.

Ons gebruik hierdie een.

Hy is lekker kompak en klein, maak ook meer as genoeg ys vir 2-persone.

Die ys wat hy maak is die met die gaatjie in die middel en effens groter as ń duif eier.

Ons kom sonder ys klaar.

Nog nooit 'n behoefte aan 'n ysmasjien gehad nie. Maak so 1 plastieksakkie (goens?)  ys in die vrieskas vir ingeval ons gaste kry wat ys gebruik.

As ek dan meer moet hê, loop koop ek 'n sakkie ys wat ons nooit self in 3 maande sal opgebruik nie.

Ons hou drinkgoed koud in los NLuna kamp ys/vrieskas in die tent.

I think you know that when some PC boards become corrupt, they reset when you disconnect for a minute or two.

We only use it when Camping Been using it since 2013. 

Plugged it in at Almega karavan park saw the sequence was out, switched it off and back on. No go.  Press and hold reset then it was okay. Got home, switched it on again to check if its fine. 

No Go. Still not working correctly.

Ours fit in a  cooler bag made by "Camp Cover" that has the padding to assist with the isolationto keep things cold. We use the isolation/padding as the ideal protection for the ice machine during transport.  Before we always used the original box with the polistyreen for transport.

Maybe I must take it in to see if it can be fixed.

Paid R799-00 for it at Hyperrama in the Kolonade Mall.

I have just aquired a NL 12Kg/24hr Ice Machine from ODWH and included the custom protective bag. I trust NL for off-road competency/durability. From switch on it makes a batch of 10 large toties in 7 minutes. Very compact and light (7.5Kg).

Paul
