    Cruizer Forward Fold 2014

    published

    Purchased this in Perth and have given up on expecting any service from MDC. Have had to upgrade the fridge wires and some power as the cabling was far from adequate. Replaced the battery charger as the one supplied could not keep up with the draw. Repaired all the draw runners as the tech screws came out before going off-road. Next will be the slides for the kitchen. And list goes on. Any attempt to contact MDC drew blanks. Now in Darwin, no agents.

    Hi there. I was looking at purchasing a second hand cruizer high side. 2015/ 16.
    I was wondering if there is much difference between these early models compared to the newer models.
    Thanks.

    Yes the new model has bigger stub axles that are parallel, bigger bearings, upgraded springs and bigger bore shock absorbers and 14mm wheel studs instead of the 1/2" UNF. The boat rack locking mechanism has also changed.

    Thanks for that quick reply Steve. Ok that would make sense as to why the Tare weight is different. I’m guessing the body is much the same. Fridge space and room for innerspring mattress ? Was there a issue with axles and bearings ? Or was It just a upgrade to make it stronger.
    Is there a issue getting parts for these older models ? I guess shocks can be upgraded to larger bore.
    So overall I guess it was still a good unit. Thanks again.

    Parts in general aren't any problem. We change things generally to make the products more resistant to abuse. We struggled to get many people to do simple checks and maintenance like checking wheel nuts with a torque wrench so we went to 14mm studs designed for trucks. People wouldn't maintain bearings so we went to a bigger set to try and compensate. As you can imagine many will blame a product for maintenance failures.

    Where is the isolator switch located on a cruiser high side?

    There are two isolation points, first and most obvious is the big red switch on the control panel. There is also a "Megafuse" located beside the batteries. This is a black item with usually green button and a little green elbow type lever on the side. If this is tripped the little elbow will sit out perpendicular to the body of the fuse. If this is the case just push it back in to run parallel to the fuse body. You'll hear it click in.
