AL-KO Now Distributing Hayman Reese Compact IQ Remote Mount Electric Brake Controller

The Compact IQTM has been designed be both easier & less intrusive to install as well as providing the driver with greater control in braking situations.

The dial and LED indicator can be mounted directly into a spare switch panel rather than through the main dashboard or centre console. The brake controller unit can be stored out of sight behind the vehicle’s dashboard – with only the control dials showing on the dash.

The Output Control Dial has two functions.

  1. It lets you set the minimum braking force of the trailer (otherwise known as the ‘Boost’ – a unique feature to the Compact IQ™ as a remote mounted brake control unit) and;
  2. Provides an over-ride function for additional braking power on the trailer when required. The over-ride force can be set by the user and is activated by pressing and holding the Output Control Dial.

The LED indicator shows the various states of the braking system through the use of different colours. It also confirms successful installation. Green indicates the system is connected and operating correctly. Red indicates that the system is active and applying the trailer’s brakes. A flashing red light means there is a connection fault.

The “Boost” feature gives users the ability to apply more or less braking power when necessary.
By adjusting the Boost on the Output Control Dial, users can choose the minimum amount of braking force to apply when the brake pedal is first pressed.

The Hayman Reese Compact IQ™ has been tested by AL-KO engineers and has been deemed compatible with AL-KO ESC.

AL-KO releases Enduro™ Cross Country Independent Trailing Arm Suspension

AL-KO, the world leaders in caravan chassis & component technology, has announced the release of AL-KO Enduro™ Cross Country – the latest addition to the AL-KO range of independent trailing arm suspension for Australian caravans.

Following AL-KO’s successful entry into the trailing arm suspension market in September 2015 with the release of an extreme off-road trailing arm suspension, the latest product to be known as “Enduro Cross Country” is a light weight version designed for comfort, control and durability on bitumen and graded dirt roads.

A key feature of the Enduro product range is the integration of premium AL-KO shock absorbers – designed and engineered in Australia and made by AL-KO in Spain. Test results show little to no bush deformation or wear, significantly less dampening degeneration, superior heat dissipation and a failure point 40 degrees higher than that of competitor products tested. Other features include Australian made 4×4 coil springs, maintenance free bushes and integrated tow and camber adjustment. It also features premium AL-KO Off-Road brakes as standard.

Extending the AL-KO philosophy of ‘Quality for Life’ to Enduro Cross County, the AL-KO engineering team conducted an exhaustive testing program at the Anglesea Automotive Research Centre prior to release. Each component of Enduro Cross Country was pushed to the limit before being accepted. The system was also tested to integrate seamlessly with modern caravan features such as AL-KO Electronic Stability Control (ESC), another AL-KO world breakthrough.

Australian designed, manufactured & tested, the product will be available for both single vans up to 2400kg ATM, and tandem vans up to 3,500kg ATM.

AL-KO Enduro Cross Country will be officially launched at the 2016 Victorian Caravan, Camping & Touring Show 24th-29th February, where it will be exhibited on a number of caravans from leading manufacturers.
