NARVA S popular model 36
submersible trailer lamp is now
available in a slimline kit, ready for
fitment to boat and jet ski trailers or
motorbike and camping trailers likely
to see plenty water or mud.
Each kit contains 2x 12V L.E.D
slimline rear stop/tail, directional
indicator lamps with in-built retro
reflectors, with one of the lamps
also equipped with an in-built L.E.D
licence plate lamp.
The lamps are tested after the
sealing process and cables are also
sealed at the entry point of the
lamp to ensure optimal underwater
Despite this superior engineering,
during the installation process Narva
recommend avoiding cable joins near
the lamp or in any other position
where they are likely to come in
To help facilitate this, the model 36
lamps are hardwired with 9 metres of
fully insulated, 4 core cable per lamp
-- this allows the cable connections
to be at the trailer plug, an area less
likely to be submerged.
The lamps slimline design allows
for close mounting on the trailer with
minimum protrusion, minimising the
likelihood of damage, yet the L.E.D
technology provides the visibility and
light output of bulkier trailer lamps.
Narva s new Model 36 submersible
Slimline L.E.D trailer lamp kits are
supported by a 5-year L.E.D warranty
and can be purchased from leading
automotive, camping and marine
stores Australia-wide under Part
No.93642TP. The New Narva Slimline
Trailer Lamp Kit has a recommended
retails price of approximately $119.00.

Trucking industry welcomes
senate payment terms motion
THE Australian Trucking Association (ATA)
has welcomed the passage of a non-binding
transport industry terms of payment motion
through the Australian Senate earlier this week,
following its introduction by Senators Williams
and Sterle last year.The motion noted that some
large companies have been unfairly asking trucking
operators to accept extended payment terms of up
to 120 days, and the resultant impact on a trucking
operator's cash flow may affect their ability to meet
their own financial commitments.The motion goes
on to state that any reduction in maintenance and
repair schedules forced on operators by extended
payment terms could lead to an increase in serious
accidents and fatalities, and calls on businesses
to adopt payment terms not exceeding 30 days,
consistent with the requirements of the Road Safety
ATA Chief Executive Christopher Melham
welcomed the motion, and said the ATA has
also called for trucking businesses to be alert to
extended payment terms in their contracts.
"We know there's sometimes a perception in
trucking that if the wheels are turning, you're all
good," Mr Melham said.
"But operators that agree to extended payment
terms still need to pay their own creditors on their
existing cycles -- for example, this could include 21
day payments to fuel suppliers, 30 day payments
to small owner-driver subcontractors, and weekly or
fortnightly payroll payments.
"I am delighted to see the Senate's
acknowledgement of this issue, and congratulate
Senator Williams and Senator Sterle for their
passionate advocacy of trucking operator concerns."
The ATA is currently developing a best practice
trucking industry contract checklist, which will
include guidance on setting payment terms
for trucking operators and their customers. The
checklist will be launched at Trucking Australia
2016 in June.
The detailed checklist and guidance material will
be available exclusively to members of ATA member
associations. Businesses will be able to use the
material as they consider appropriate: they will not
be required to use it.
