    Finally got around to making and installing the shelf for the rear door. All from bits and pieces I had on hand except for the piano hinge. Even set up a light up top. Tried it out in anger during a...

    Nothing can flow until there is a circuit, and a circuit does not care which connection is first or last. The only thing that I can think of is for possible static discharge, but that seems extremely...

    Reading the NOCO manual, it says to connect the positive lead first, then the negative (other way round for positive earth systems) and disconnect in the reverse sequence.

    Not specific to Kings, but just general information. Most solar panels are over-rated in terms of output. You can only reasonably expect around 170-180 watts maximum per square metre of actual active...

    Need to be mindful of your rear overhang. Measured from the centre of the rear wheels/axles to the extreme end, it should be more than 60% of the distance between front and rear wheel centres or...

    Because I could not find any roof load limits for my GU wagon either in the owner's manual or on the web, I made a query to Nissan.

    I have a large one as well. Jaws are only 5" wide but she weight a ton. Blacksmith's vice. Made so that you can bash the hell out of them, unlike most bench vices. But she's no precision instrument.

    Telephone exchanges used 50v with positive earth to avoid problems with electrolysis. The positive earth system means that the ground side of things is the side that gets depleted (the anode) which...

    Shouldn't a heat shield like this be light coloured (absorbs less radiated heat than dark) and glossy (reflect more heat than matte finish)?

    I'm not convinced that the roof limit is any more than 100kg. Just because it was somewhere on the web does not make it correct. I want to see something better than someone's opinion (and I don't...

    Probably true for the roof load limit of the vehicle - I could not find anything that suggests reducing this limit. I am fairly confident that this is the same for both on and off road.

    My GU wagon has a max roof load of 100kG, and that must include the weight of any rack you put up there as well as the contents.
    The rack load capacity is pretty meaningless as this is almost always...

    Old school theory was that it is best to drain while hot and immediately after a good run. That way all the crud is mixed up in the oil so drains away instead of settling on the floor of the sump...

    DJI Mavic Pro. No idea of the damage yet as I can't get it retrieved until Wednesday. It didn't crash to the ground so I am hoping it is not much more than props.
