I pulled the fuses on the 12V outputs the other day, just leaves the solar panels keeping the batteries up. They've been in there a while now and were secondhand to start with, so they've done well.

I must get our trailer serviced in the New Year. It wasn't done this year because with having the van we have only used it a couple of times when either the dairy or shearing stuff went out, but the hitch damper is failing despite being replaced two years ago, there is either a sidelamp bulb holder or wiring fault (I can sort that out) and I want the brakes and bearings etc given the once over for peace of mind. Most of its towing is done on motorways so I want it 'right' and will get it booked into the workshop after the January rush is over.

The small 4-wheel trailer had new axles a couple of years back, they need looking at and bearings adjusting, the 6-wheeler doesn't seem to have as much in the way of servicing needs than the other one, but with three axles carrying the weight it isn't as heavily loaded.

Normally it's just tyres and wheel bearing checks, brakes hardly wear on it.

Looks like the Merc tie-downs have done the business, I'll be buying a set for my own trailer build then
