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)

Cheers. I've just got my 2nd van gone for the vw transporter so wanted to go for quality throughout.

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.

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!!!!!

Was trying to base my set up on your van if I'm honest haha I've gone for the door cards and the internal pole racks aswel can't wate to get it back on Wednesday. I've got an Ionics pure20 in my vivaro which will be going to a lad who's renting a round off me

I've seen your videos on YouTube (what's in your van) was very impressed with the setup was part of the reason I went for the grippamax with the roller guides and I also went for the door cards and internal pole holders just wating on my rhino aluminium roof rack and get my van back on Wednesday can't wate to see it all finished. Thers my babies (;

Lovely jubbley.

 

I have purchased my new number plate. All ready for my next van now.

 

When the supplier releases it i should be able to provide something for your reel.

 

I came up with a big improvement and they decided to patent and produce it. Will let you know after I have had a meeting with them.

 

It's my idea on auto spooling. It's works but it was a bit urmmmmm BIG lol
