The pan won't get full of water if you separate that storage compartment from the back of the trailer. This whole design with the funnel plate and extending the belly skin out to also be the bottom of the storage compartment was a piss poor design from day one.

Here is what I did. I need to post some final picture of the storage box put back together.

I tried to add some photos below but they don't want to post.

If you do not remove the inside lower skins you cannot see what shape the rear hold down plate is in. I have done 4 of these and every one had to have the rear hold down plate replaced. It is the angled plate that is riveted to the lower center of the back shell, directly under the rear window. You will see a bunch of rivets in the aluminum in the center just above the storage compartment. The other part of the angle is riveted to the frame, and connects the body to the frame. If this is rusted through, everything you are doing is just a waste of time.

I have been told that the hold down plate is not use on the new trailers. I wonder how they get a good solid connection back there with no hold down plate. I think it or something like it needs to be there.
