Power & Self Sufficiency

Power & Self Sufficiency

An Expedition Vehicle by definition, should not only reach remote locations, but it must also allow its occupants to stay for extended periods. To do this, the vehicle must incorporate a power system that verges on self-sufficiency. This power cycle can be split into 3 main stages:

  • Power Storage
  • Power Supply
  • Recharging

Let’s have a look at how the SLRV Adventurer combines cutting-edge design and the latest technology to do just that……

The Worlds Leading Battery Systems

The Worlds Leading Battery Systems

SLRV are proud partners with Mastervolt – the world leaders in Lithium battery systems. The MLI Ultra series is designed to enjoy all the best properties of Lithium Ion technology in the harshest conditions. These high-performance batteries are ideal for running heavy loads for long periods and short charge times. The battery communicates with the charging system via the MasterBus network, ensuring safety and performance is maximised at all times. With up to 70% saving in space and weight, these are the ideal choice for any expedition vehicle.

All SLRV vehicles are equipped with a 400Ah lithium battery as standard – and can be optioned with 800Ah or 1200Ah systems (depending on the vehicle). The larger systems generally provide the power capacity required to run 110/240v household appliances and air conditioning, off grid, for longer periods of time. This in turn, is one of the key elements that allows SLRV vehicles to be equipped with the many ‘comforts of home’.

Power Supply – 12V / 24V & Inverter power

Power Supply – 12V / 24V & Inverter power

Much of SLRV’s power is supplied as 12V or 24V – and operates a majority of systems including LED lighting, refrigerators and freezers, pumps & plumbing, various appliances and monitoring systems.

Other appliances that we take for granted in our homes, such as induction cooktop, oven/microwave, washer/dryer, electric BBQ and air conditioner to name a few, require 110/240V power to operate. To convert 12V battery power into usable 110/240V energy for these appliances, an inverter is required. SLRV vehicles are all equipped as standard, with a 3500W Mastervolt unit. This is suitable to run one to two appliances at a time. If you require additional power, SLRV’s larger systems include 2 inverters, giving a total of 7000W!

For your convenience, all SLRV vehicles feature multiple internal and external charging sockets, including:

  • 12V cigarette type
  • USB points
  • Anderson plug
  • Wireless Under bench phone charging

Recharging

Recharging

The ability to recharge your battery system from multiple sources is vital. The nature of an expedition vehicle often requires this to be done during remote travel, where mains power isn’t readily available. Lets take a look at the ways an SLRV helps keep you charged….

Recharging – Mains Power

Recharging – Mains Power

When you are connected to the power grid, charging is done via the Mastervolt 100A battery charger. This system can be configured to accept both 110V and 240V power sources – so you can charge your battery system anywhere in the world.

Recharging – Secondary Alternator

Recharging – Secondary Alternator

By far the best source of battery charging is SLRV’s Secondary Alternator system. This unit can provide up to 2.5kW charge while driving and also charges while at idle. This makes it an ideal source of charge during remote travel. The second alternator is a key part of SLRV’s stage 2 and 3 electrical packages, providing large battery capacity, loads of inverter power and multiple highly efficient recharging systems. This means you can use more appliances….more often!

Solar Power

Solar Power

Multiple charging sources are crucial for any expedition vehicles power system. Solar cells play an essential role in keeping your system charged when no other source is available. A good array of panels will, in fact, keep the necessary appliances in the SLRV Adventurer running self sufficiently – given a decent ray of sunshine.

SLRV expedition vehicles utilise a series of highly energy efficient 200W panels. The Adventurer is fitted with 1.2kW of solar as standard!

Recharging – DC DC Chargers

Recharging – DC DC Chargers

Standard 400Ah lithium systems that don’t feature a secondary alternator, use a pair of Mastervolt DC-DC chargers to receive a 100A charge from the truck. This is the same charge you receive by plugging into mains power.

 

Recharging - Generators

Recharging - Generators

Under normal usage, with a high-end SLRV electrical system, a generator is not regularly required. It does, however, provide a valuable backup source for charging during an extended period of overcast or rainy weather – or even when you’re camped up for an extended stay.

Water Systems

Water Systems

Water is undoubtedly our most precious commodity when touring remotely. An Expedition Vehicle must not only hold ample water for its passengers, it has to aid in the conservation of water. This, in turn, allows you to remain out in the wilderness for longer. The SLRV team have designed a system that will do just that. Let’s have a look how it works!

Multiple Cells

Multiple Cells

To store and conserve water, the SLRV system incorporates multiple tanks – arranged in series of separate ‘cells’. By doing this, various quality water can be stored in separate tanks and accessed for specific uses – ultimately enabling you to conserve your water. This intelligent system allows you to select which tank you wish to fill by the press of a switch. Similarly, inside the vehicle, you can select which tank you want to draw from. Depending on configuration, the Adventurer holds approx. 300 litres of water – suitable for long-term remote travel

Dedicated Drinking Water

Dedicated Drinking Water

Ensuring you always have a safe source of drinking water is vital. SLRV have a dedicated and totally independent drinking water system –  with its own filler, tank, pump, filtration system and mixer outlet. This ensures your quality drinking water remains just that – and is ultimately conserved for extended isolated travel.

Water Filtration

Water Filtration

A carbon water filter system is fitted to your SLRV drinking water system as standard, removing impurities for clean tasting water.

City Water Supply

City Water Supply

All SLRV water systems incorporate a city water entry – bypassing your tanks and allowing you to connect to the mains water supply whenever available. Pressure fillers used in the SLRV system also provide added security to your water supply.

Diesel Hot Water & Heater

Diesel Hot Water & Heater

All SLRV vehicles utilise diesel powered hot water and heater systems. These are extremely efficient and are plumbed into the trucks diesel tank. The heater works brilliantly – and the water system can supply constant hot water for your needs.

Creek Pump

Creek Pump

Staying out in the wilderness for longer is the name of the game. With water tanks set up in separate cells, it is possible to isolate and store water from various sources such as creeks, dams or rivers. This can be pumped into a dedicated tank using the ‘Thirsty Boy’ – and used for tasks including showering or doing a washing cycle. The Thirsty Boy can also be used on the ‘city water entry’ circuit – bypassing tanks altogether. The Thirsty Boy comes in its own ‘tough case’ with an internal pump and power supply for complete mobility. Just hook up your water hoses and away you go.

Construction

The SLRV Adventurer is constructed using premium materials and components. The entire vehicle has been specifically designed to withstand harsh off-road conditions – and does so with ease. A three point torsion free chassis and infused composite fibreglass panelling are utilised for the ultimate function and build quality. Interior cabinetry is made to the highest standards. Take a look at the process…..

CAD Design & CNC

CAD Design & CNC

SLRV use the latest SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software to continually develop and evaluate vehicle design. Customers receive a full 3d model and working drawings of their vehicle design, to ensure the build meets their exact requirements. By utilising this Solidworks software, a wide variety of steel and aluminium components are CNC cut and folded for precision accuracy and build quality.

3 Point Torsion Free Chassis

The torsional ‘twist’ of the Isuzu truck chassis in extreme conditions, requires the body to be mounted using a proper ‘3 point torsion free subframe’. Conventional ‘spring mounted’ systems do not remove all the force from the body – and can potentially cause structural issues with composite panel constructions. A true 3 point torsion free system allows the body and truck chassis to twist freely and independently – removing the transfer of these forces into the motorhome body and retaining the structural integrity of the vehicle. This design also increases off-road performance by increasing the wheels ability to remain in contact with the ground over rough terrain.

Infused composite Fibreglass Panels

Infused composite Fibreglass Panels

30mm composite fibreglass panels are used in the construction of the Adventurer’s body – for ultimate strength and insulation. Unlike inferior hot glued panels, SLRV panels are fully infused – which means they are manufactured under vacuum – injecting the perfect amount of resin into the fibreglass and achieving an optimum strength to weight ratio. Imported from Sweden, the premium closed cell, self-extinguishing core material has a series of holes that allow resin to flow thru and connect the inside and outside fibreglass layers. This prevents de-lamination and adds to the overall strength of the panel. Both sides of SLRV panels are finished in gelcoat, for the maximum durability, serviceability and a brilliant finish.

Superior Electrical Protection

Superior Electrical Protection

All wiring throughout the SLRV Adventurer is run in conduit for protection against wear and shorting. In fact, every electrical device has its own wiring, in conduit, the entire way back to the main circuit breaker.

Joinery

Joinery

SLRV joinery is constructed using the highest quality materials, fixtures and fittings – and is specifically constructed for rugged off-road travel. Cabinet carcass’ are constructed from an ultralight, waterproof and fire retardant plastic material, giving high strength and durability. Cupboard and drawer fronts are finished in a high-quality ABS plastic and are complemented by soft close drawer runners and Blum overhead stays. Signature SLRV heavy duty compression latches are used throughout.

SLRV hatch's

SLRV hatch's

SLRV manufacture their own range of aluminium and composite panel hatch’s. Unlike mass-produced hatch’s, they are both dust and water proof and do not degrade in the sun. Composite door panels open with gas strut assist and LED lights automatically turn on inside the hatch area.

The Modified Truck

The Modified Truck

The SLRV Adventurer is based on the Isuzu NPS 75/45-155 4×4 cab chassis (formerly NPS 300 4×4). Isuzu trucks have a proven track record when it comes to reliability – and are regularly used in rural fire brigades and electrical services for this reason. With a few basic modifications, this truck becomes one seriously capable 4×4 vehicle. We also have a few trick mods up our sleeve that make this a formidable offroad weapon!  Check out the specs and mods.

Super Single Wheels and Tyres

Super Single Wheels and Tyres

Super single wheel and tyre combinations offer a greater footprint for improved off-road capability. The front and rear have the same track, allowing the rear to follow the compacted track of the front wheels. The larger diameter offers greater ground clearance for the vehicle and wheels can be rotated to extend the life of the tyre. Available in ‘all terrain’ or ‘mud’ pattern.

Rear Diff Lock

Rear Diff Lock

In 2021 SLRV will released the worlds first full diff lock for the Isuzu NPS300 / 75/45-155 4×4 truck. The locker is air actuated and is fully Australian designed and made.

Auto Torque front diff centre

Auto Torque front diff centre

To help the front end out, SLRV can option the Auto Torque front diff centre. This unit will transfer power and torque away from a spinning wheel to the one with the most traction.

Suspension Upgrade

Suspension Upgrade

SLRV’s suspension upgrade provides a number of benefits specific to this kind of vehicle. Upgrades include:

  • Koni Shock Absorbers / King Shock Absorbers
  • Greasable shackle pins and bush’s added
  • Extended brake lines
  • Upgraded front cross member and sway bar mounts for increased articulation
  • Longer front springs for ride comfort and additional travel
  • Rear springs modified to single stage for ride comfort and additional travel
  • Approx 100mm overall lift with Super single wheels and tyres
