Hi all, this is my first post. I tried the search function but to no avail. 

I have a toyota fortuner and a penta 1996 model. I have just purchased a straight liner second hand i cant seem to figure the thing out. Activating and de activating. I also is in need of the car plate for the stabilizer. If anyone has one please let me know. 

Regards.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I was there already. No stock. If they order it wil take a while. I had a huge scare last year on our way to Plettenberg Bay and have not towed it again. 

I have installed the drop plate and have read all about packing the caravan. As i understand i must 3.5 for the caravan tyres and 2.8 for the rear car tyres.

Ok dankie, wil ook net hoor waar julle tente le? My tente is onder my eiland bed? Ek het my nose "cone" gereinforce met fiberglass. Dink daaraan om my tente daar in te sit?

Het vir my n nuwe straightliner liner gaan koop net vir die bracket. So die ander een is te koop. Alles is bymekaar behalwe die car plate.

I have hitched the caravan and went for a test dive. I am very impressed with the straight liner. I tested at 80km/h and the straight liner just brings the caravan straight on every test i did! Very happy customer. 

I also check my interior lighting and the one light above the double bed is dead. I removed it and tried fitting a 12v light, to no avail. Is the power to lights 220v? If so how do i go about converting to 12v?

The power, 12V or 220V, should be indicated on the bulb or tube, so that should not be a problem to establish.  You can also determine that with a multi tester- first test for 220V AC.

If the lights are 220V and you want to convert to 12V, the power unit in your caravan will deliver 12V to charge the battery, so you already have a power source.  Just use that for the lights.  Preferably connect directly top the battery,  but there should not be a problem connecting it to the charger, which might be easier.  You just have to find the 12V output with a multitester

You can use the existing 220V wires after disconnecting them from the 220V source.  You should be able to pick this up at the power unit.  If you are unfamiliar with working with electricity, best take it to an expert.

Hi Fred, thanks for the reply, I will test it as you have suggested. I am not using the 12v pump, so i will use that outlet in the db for testing. Many thanks.

Hi AngusWP

Ek het sopas n gebruikte Straight Liner gekoop met geen instruksies oor hoe om te installeer nie. Ek sien jy het n nuwe een gekoop. Is dit dalk moontlik om vir my die instruksies te stuur assblief
