how to set myself up for fulltiming in one place

hello all,

i was wondering if you guys had some info or knew where i could go to find out how to set up water, electricity, something for the stove, and toilet etc. my dad has this trailer on a plot of land we own in brooklyn ny i know literally nothing about trailers but am moving in for the summer - im accustomed to dorm life and small spaces so i dont think its going to be a huge life changing shift

my issue is i have no idea how to get things like water and electricity - i dont even know what the jargon is for these things. also i am on a low budget so permanently establishing the trailer to the city sewer sys. isn't really an option for me

can you tow it? You can get by with an extension cord and a hose if you can empty your black and gray tanks weekly.

I live about 20 minutes away in New Hyde Park.
Give me a shout and I'll try to give you hand and show you the ropes.
