Well its been a productive day. I got all of the U channel installed and my next big task will be installing the belly pan. Here is a question though, the way it was wired b4 the power for all 12 volt
lights including inside and outside the trailer ran from the tow vehicle and went through a hole that was drilled through the belly pan, floor, and U channel and into the wall where it was then distributed to the various lights. Would it be a better idea to have it run from the tow vehicle to a receptacle on the outside skin surface? It seems as though it would be a cleaner install and there wouldn't have to be a hole drilled through the floor. Has anyone done anything like this? You could have a single cord that runs between the tow vehicle & trailer that could be removed and stored when not in use. I have seen some heavy duty outlets that would work well. Let me know what you think and if there are any problems with this idea.
