Any thoughts of installing bot down/up access panels on your belly pan? I'm planning on putting some by the holding tanks do I can drop small sections to get to the plumbing for repairs. If I ever get to that point..

Might be easier to drop your tanks in place before you put in the floor. Speaking from experience, it's "fun" to lay on the ground and shove the fresh water tank into place with your feet...... .
Propane lines definitely need to go on the OUTSIDE of the belly pan. We put Pex over the lines to protect them from road debris hits when we installed them.
We ran our battery lines in the belly pan because we moved the location of the converter and battery, which are not near each other. It was easier to go underneath the floor than try to snake things through the trailer. Otherwise all our electrical is in the walls.
Water lines should be inside the trailer to protect from freezing. (Just reiterating what has been said.)
Good luck!

Hmmm. Pex over it. That's a good idea.

Hi!

When Don did our Bambi and put on the belly pan.... he made access doors to the critical areas in case he needed to do repairs.... he made a separate access for the holding tank and pipes, etc. That way in case of problems the whole belly pan doesn't come off or have to been replaced.

Just a thought to throw out there.

It's called being proactive and it's a great idea. Give Big D a kiss from us!!
