    Hema 4WD update for ios

    My Hema 4wd app updated overnight, they have added 8 new Vic High Country maps, I wonder how the new maps compare to the Rooftop map series? I’m glad to see they are still keeping Hema 4wd up to date even if they seem to have lost their way with 4x4 Explorer Have a great Easter everyone Aaron

    Fridge wiring size help please!

    Chances are that the tip of the cigarette plug on your current lead will unscrew revealing an Engel posifit plug. You can buy from places like bcf an Engel fridge wiring kit which includes everything you need to run a fused cable from the start battery to the back of the car and an posifit socket.
