Re: Essentials for long trip
hi Enkie

i would add as well,
a tube rated for your tyre size
tubeless puncture repair kit
i would check all earth wires before the trip as it can cause the harnees to melt if bad. we had this in Lesotho.

and never for get a decent fire extinguisher, my camper caught fire in Namibia, with out it we would be less one 16" syncro camper


I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life
