Propane Connection to Stove

From my first trailer a 68 Globetrotter. PO told me he had done some repair work.

This was the patch on the leaking propane line feeding the stove.

I have a '68 Globetrotter and the PO ripped out the rear window frame and crank and everything and using 2x4's and plywood stuck an AC in to wobble around. Also sealed it with spray foam. What a mess to clean up.

This is really sad, considering that the window design lends itself to a tidy installation of an air conditioner, while still leaving lots of window area. Plus, when you don't need the A/C, it sits in the bottom of a closet and the window is completely available for use as before the installation of the A/C.

My po bypasses the original wiring with extension cords and a surge protector in place of the fuse box. The 12 volt system was ignored and wired up the rear lights with a flat4 utility trailer harness then used conduit to run the wire from the bumper to the tail light on the outside. All of the interior lights were vanity bars hard wired into extension cords. The ac was drained into the sink. Entire pieces of rotten subfloor were covered with bondo, drilled over plywood, and in one spot mortar I think. Mounds of caulk, duct tape and not so "great stuff".
