First off, we always recommend carrying out a full inspection of your Land Rover before setting off. Check your Land Rovers fluid levels are topped up to the recommended levels including the engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, steering fluid, gearbox fluid, and screen wash. Ensure your Land Rovers tyres (including the spare tyre) are in good condition and correctly inflated with sufficient tread depth (the minimum legal limit in the UK is 1.6mm). Plus, don’t forget to check your wipers and lights are all in good working order too.
What to pack for your weekend adventures?
Being a Land Rover owner, you more than likely take to the open-road and just see where you end up – it seems to be in our DNA! So, we’ve compiled a list of items we recommend packing for your pending trip.
Extra fuel for your Land Rover
Portable Multi-Function Battery Pack
Keep a portable battery pack in your Land Rover. It could make the difference between a fun or a miserable weekend adventure because there is nothing worse than going to start your Land Rover and the battery being flat.
We recommend our multi-function portable battery pack. They’re small and lightweight and can also be used to charge your electronics including laptops, mobile phones, tablets, portable DVD players and much more.
Rechargeable Emergency Light
Carrying a lightweight, adjustable magnetic base rechargeable emergency work light in your Land Rover is super handy. It comes with bright, medium, and flash mode settings and can be charged via a cigar lighter plug or a USB lead.
A Snatch Strap
Keeping a snatch strap in your Land Rover is always a good idea. A snatch strap is specifically designed to stretch under load when extracting bogged 4-wheel-drives with the help of a second vehicle. If, however, there is no one else around, use a tree as an anchor point and wrap a tree trunk protector around your recovery equipment to keep it undamaged and the anchor point on the tree unharmed.
Portable Fridge Freezer
Having a portable fridge freezer in your Land Rover is the perfect addition to your weekend trip. We stock a specially designed vibration-resistant portable fridge freezer to operate in tough off-road environments. It is able to perform at +30 degrees ambient temperature outside, down to -18degrees, and has a 45-litre capacity.
