FRC App Tutorials

Our website has now been updated, and we have recently released the latest version of the App which is jam-packed with quite a bit of information, so we though a few tutorial videos may help you out when getting started. 

The tutorials are broken down into those for Free users as well as the more advanced functions for Premium Club Members.  Each video has a short demonstration on a particualr section or function of the App. 

Please feel free to view all the tutorials via the link below.




Dual Battery Systems

Why have a Dual Battery System?

Many of us have great solar systems set up for the caravan, but what happens when we want to leave the van and go off exploring, or, if you go camping with a tent in the 4WD and need to power up the portable fridge for the night. 

The problem is, electrical devices can soon drain car batteries, leaving you with a flat battery and in some cases stranded.  This is where a Dual Battery system is ideal.  In simple terms, it is a second battery for your car, that is charged either as you drive or by solar panels.  This way, one battery can be used for the car, and the other for your accessories.   

However, like many things on the market these days, there is quite an array to choose from, and in the case of a Dual Battery system, some expert knowledge goes a long way to help setting up the best system for your needs.

This is where Battery World can help.  We spoke to our friends at Battery World and they have kindly put together this great article outlining the basics of a Dual Battery System.


New products for this month

RV Clothes Lines & Security Cables

Clothes Line and Security solutions for your RV

This month’s new products feature a purpose made clothes line for the caravan awning.  No need to tie a sagging rope between the awning arms any longer.  These purpose built clothes lines are swaged using over 70 tonnes of pressure and will remain taunt on your awning.   Designed and built in OZ by a caravanner, the cables are all made from high quality marine grade stainless steel.   They can be fixed permanently or easily removed for travel.

The range also includes a series of strong security cables that can be used to secure either your van or valuables around the campsite.
