We have now decided we take “restaurant route” for bon vivants 🙂 , and is getting ready for our holiday ?.
First and foremost, we must ensure our trains are as safe as possible, and here we scroll. purchased new parts and new equipment.
In addition, we examined how we can get “free overload & Bremse-Test.” 🙂 , see more in the article.
Stabilizer brake linings:
Our Winterhoff stabilizer brake linings should be changed before our summer holiday, Thus, we ensure optimum driveability.
Winterhoff stabilizer has an indicator which shows where the worn brake pads are, our shows before replacement, that there are about. 50-60 % back. There are about. 8 years old, We therefore choose to change brake pads so we have created optimal conditions for the combination.
A replacement is very simple, and includes instructions on how to replace the brake pads. You do not have much technical skill to be able to replace your brake pads themselves.
Weighing caravan and car:
We can now weigh our caravan and car with our small weight which can weigh up to 1.500 kg pr. axle / wheel. There are two models of the German quality manufacturer Reich, one which can weigh max 1.000 kg pr. axle / wheel, and one which can weigh max 1.500 kg pr. axle / wheel.
It is very simple to use, and includes weighing applications to the car or caravan. When weighing run first one wheel over weight, then the other wheel, and finally run you nose wheel over weight.
You are told how much each axle weighs and how much ball pressure weighs, and eventually you will be informed the total weight 🙂 . This means you will obtain the weight in the right side, and in the left side, and finally maximum load.
We have considered our holiday packed caravan with our weight:
It's easy and fast, to weigh his caravan and car of this weight.
After weighing the caravan could we discover we have some Pushchairs caravan, but in addition also found out the axle on the right and left side had a difference of about. 94 kg, and ball pressure was a little too high 🙁 – Both factors may contribute to unstable driving.
We now have packed a little about the caravan so we achieve the same axle as possible on each side. We control considering again before we run, and then we take our weight on holiday, it weighs only about the. 1 kg and takes up very little.
We also considered the car's axle.
NB. You can also free get “overload & Bremse-Test”– See more at the bottom of this page.
We have previously used a red plastic ball pressure gauge we put in front, wherein the stabilizer is mounted on the towbar.
Now is the time we would like a load indicator that is securely placed on caravan, and we have therefore chosen Winterhoff jockey wheel with load indicator. We chose Winterhoff because we have Winterhoff stabilizer mounted, Thus, it fits together 🙂 .
Now we can just read the bullet press, caravan must still be level by reading the nose load indicator. Typically, our ball pressure slightly heavier at the start of the holiday, in that the gas bottle is filled to capacity, and as we consume gas on vacation, the ball pressure less, and now with fixed load indicator allows us easy, To correct for the maximum load along the way while on vacation.
In addition, we have the electronic scale capable of measuring ball pressure, so we can of course check the real load indicator weighs correctly 🙂 .
Tire pressure and lubrication:
We have also made lubrication of our caravan and washing and lacquer varnish. Tire pressure at camping and car are checked and inflated to maximum pressure.
