More Patches

When deciding where to put my shore power hook up and city water line...I just could not force myself to drill new holes into an already holy AS. Even though it is more mid ship than I would like. I decided to patch a opening that was already there, by installing my hook ups there.

Insulation

After over analyzing everything on insulation I decided to use 3/4" Poly Foam EPS. Instead of trying to keep heat out, I am going to try and keep the cool in. There is only so much you can with 1.5 inches of space. The wiring will go on top of the insulation. Again pro's and cons but hey it is my trailer...

What I do like about installing the stuff is that you don't have to be to exact on size. And you can use almost every bit of the 4x8. If you cut short you just cut a scrap piece shove it in and then tape it up. I also am taping every seam.

Todays work the back 13 panels.

Another Milestone!

Nothing earth shattering...just finished 99% of my insulation. Only left the rear sections open where the tail lights and license plate will be installed.

Used 11 4x8 sheets of 3/4 inch eps, about 20 tubes of adhesive and one roll of foil tape.

Now on to the next challenge W I R I N G

Wiring

I forgot how many feet of wire any vehicle takes when you re-wire something. Just for starters I ordered 200 feet of wire. I used over 150 feet on just the trailer lights alone.

I did heat shrink disconnects on all the lights just as a ease of replacement. Most likely will do all connections on the dc end with disconnects.

Also installed the fresh water tank inlet. Small steps but really pushing hard to have wire and plumbing done b4 our summer hiatus ...
