My apologies for only getting back to you now as we first had to travel back to Lilongwe, Malawi since we returned from our 2 week trip in the Kalahari. I live and work with my family (wife + 2 kids) in Malawi as we are designing and managing a school construction project for the Local Government with funds donated from Germany. It was also crazy here since my return and it took me a couple of weeks just to get back on track.
Firstly I would like to thank you again for entrusting me with your prototype unit! Your willingness to give it to a total stranger just shows your commitment and trust in the product and I must admit…it delivered! As per your instruction, I went ahead and fitted the magnetic sensor underneath one of my 9kg gas bottles that are fixed behind our Conqueror Comfort Off-Road Trailer. The Conqueror's gas bottle shelves are pretty well designed (as most things are on the conqueror) by ensuring that the bottles are securely fastened and protected from impact. Despite this I initially had my doubts whether the sensor’s magnetic field will survive the type of roads that we were to travel and I made extra provision to ensure that the sensor does not get lost when it eventually comes loose form the bottle. Was I proved wrong! Further to this I also fitted the digital gauge that you gave me inside the trailer close to the bottles.
We started our trip on 15 March 2019 which lasted 2 weeks and we finally arrived back in Pretoria on 30 March 2019 after 4,270km of corrugated 4x4 offroad driving. To give you and indication of how we travelled; we started off our journey from Pretoria thru Vryburg on our way to Mabuasehube (Botswana) thru the McCarthy’s Rest border crossing. It did not take our convoy long to get tired of tarred roads and we quickly decided to take a “short-cut” away from the regular tar road. From Vryburg we went due North West towards Tosca and we followed the Molopo River thru the Molopo Nature Reserve towards McCarthy’s rest. The scenery is absolutely spectacular but the road was extremely corrugated and I stressed about the sensor all the way! Our journey continued thru the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park from Mabuasehube (Botswana) to Twee Rivieren (South Africa)…we took the 4x4 Boso Trail from Lesaloago Pans (Mabuasehube) to reach Nossob and I must admit, the road was a real challenge! Thick sand, corrugation and extreme 45deg Celsius heat!
From the Kgalagadi we went on to do the 3-day (Part 1) Namaqua 4x4 Trail from the small town of Pella to Vioolsdrift against the mighty Orange River in the Northen Cape Province. This trail again did not fail to deliver on some extreme off-road driving and beautiful scenery.
To my surprise, after arriving back in Pretoria, the sensor was still in exactly the same position than 2 weeks ago when we started the journey! This despite the bad roads and extreme conditions! Just to put it in perspective…we had several things that got damaged including drawer systems in the car and trailer, fridge motors that stopped working due to the shaking and even broken cutlery. Your sensor however stuck like a ‘chappie’!
The main advantage for me about the system was that I could regularly check the level of my gas bottel and I was actually disappointed in the fact that I do not have one on my other 9kg bottle. The app interface is also very user-friendly and easy to understand. I was also very surprised to see the amount of gas that we consumed on that particular bottle which was much less that what I predicted / assumed.
This past Easter weekend we went up to Makuzi Beach Lodge which is situated just before Nkhata Bay to the north of Lake Malawi…which was a another test for your system due to bad roads…which it survived! Before the trip I had the bottles refilled and I was surprised about how accurate the refill quantity was against the amount that was indicated on the app!
To conclude; I am a big fan of Yonke Gas sensor and the app and I would definitely like to have another sensor that I can add to my other 9kg bottle.
Cheers and good luck with the system!
