New Season !

Post by adiga » Fri Oct 05, 2007 11:26 pm

As the new season just started and a lot of desert trips will be planed, once or twice a week, all the members & there rides should be ready.
To start, and first of all, your vehicle should be ready! How?
• Do the regular maintenance, No oil, Coolant, Hydraulics, or fuel leaks.
• Check the condition of all the hoses, pipes, and their connections.
• No Unusual sounds coming from any where of your Vehicle.
• Check the condition of the driving belts.
• Check the oil quantities at your vehicle Engine, gear box, Transfer case, front and aft differentials, power steering and adjust as requires.
• The tiers also should be in good condition.
• All safety belts must be working properly.
• A decent front & aft towing points.


Secondly
You must have recovery gear! What is that??
• Towing strap (snatch) and tow shekels. With minimum rating of double the weight of your Vehicle. Can be bought from ARB shop at Mussafah.
• A decent air compressor.
• Lifting jack ( the ordinary one can do the job)
• Jacking board 12'' X 12''
• Basic hand tools.
• Tier pressure gage.
• Tier defoliators.
• Small sand shovel.
• At least 5 liters of water.
• Hand gloves.
• Simple First Aid kit.
• Communication devices.
• Flag pole (recommended for intermediate level and above).
and not to forget the fire Extinguisher

Wishing all the members joyful and safe season.

:iagree:

especially with:
A decent front & aft towing points.
Please don't assume your car has these - check if you have only just got your car or are new to the club, it'll only take a couple of minutes and well worth the time.
I only found out that my 2006 Jeep Liberty did not have them when I got stuck on my 2nd trip. Like most people I assumed they would be there. :?

If in doubt over any of your essential recovery and safety equipment please get one of the Marshals to double check it for you - I got Mpenzi to check out mine today just to be on the safe side.

Rated equipment = safety + peace of mind.

Thanks for the Remainder Salah
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
