    I haven't got the RO/DI package as i use PPB static.

    Good system. The v3 is very smart and posh, obviously its just re badged and made at Spring Europe. Auto flush is not needed imo on these system buts its a nice feature to have.

    Very stable to drive. I have the 850 version. The van drives the same no matter what load of water you have (maybe slower ;) though)

    Make sure the fuel tank is ok afterwards lol. Usually have to drop tanks on system installs.

    I don't know how grippamax do theirs. But a friend of mine had a repair bill of £700 when another company fluffed his install on his T6. T5 and T6 are the same layout i believe.

    Do you have the mobile reels or static reels I've gone for the cox stacker reels with rollers as saves a lot of time and effort setting up at every job

    Thats my first electric reel. Over xmas i am designing something for this van which tbh is going to be truly epic and not done before.

    yeah side stack reels are ok. My mate has the cox ones as well. We made a joining handle for him, they take it in turns and reel in the hose together. So one wind of the reels, winds two hoses.

    APPLY LOCK TIGHT or some form of thread glue to the braking system on reel. They come loose and are expensive to replace if you loose them!!!!!
