    It's been a battle but like the gu it's an easy clip together set up so after I worked out the pieces it was all out in no time.
    Went the redarc tow pro 3 this time. I think plans for this car are long term. So not going cheap.
    Tucked it high in the driver's kick pannel and switch in a handy spot Just below the steering wheel.
    Cable has been run down inside the chassis and just need a new plug on the back to wire it into..

    Unfortunately still haven't sold our mt gambier property so progress everywhere has been slow.

    But parents bought us a kings 2.5x2.5 awning for us for an early chrissy pressy.
    So that'll be fitted over the break.

    Apart from that love the petrol..
    Cheers

    Nice one Kallen, I'm getting the same brake controller fitted to the Nav next week. They are all the rage and everybody who has upgraded to one of them absolutely loves them.

    I have the same brake controller on the Patrol and it is brilliant, towed my caravan back from Mildura last Sunday and could not feel the van was there when brakeing, had it on the proportional breaking setting and let it do its thing.

    Why is the Nav nicer to tow with? I like towing with the Patrol, except for up hills and through traffic with the manual.

    V1 and 2 are simply a variable switch set by the dial. Brake force is one setting and that's it.
    The v3 has a gyro in it to sence the force of the braking affect.
    So the harder you pull up the more the trailer will brake also..

    Yea I don't think I'll ever tow anything big enough to really notice the difference. But my brother is now sales and can get the v3 for dam near the same price as the v2.. so looking forward to it..

    So Sunday saw the early chrissy pressy fitted. Pains me but it's kings. Can't turn down a pressy from the folks. And it's only an awning. Not going to be detrimental to a trip if it fails..
    Solid rhs bars between the factory roof rails.
    And tweaked the kings brackets to suit..
    It's moves a little at the front so will make better brackets after Christmas.
    But for now it's there..
    2.5x2.5 fits very nice.
