I can't believe that A/S built it that way, so I would have to say that it looks like a custom job and that the lower panel was not replaced when cut out.

I thought that the bottom was insulated. From the picture, I see traces of insulation present.

Is the whole belly open?

Eric

Belly Open? No, except there...

Howdy, Eric. Nope. The belly is not open anywhere else. And there is insulation poked into some of the areas under there, but I'm going to wait for warmer weather to get into it.

The more I think about it, the more I think it should be insulated and closed up, especially in this part of the country. So, when I get into the plumbing and finish up, I'll see what I can do to close it up.

I guess a blue tank for grey water would let me camp without a connected slinky/drain. Cool.

Hey Phil.

This Saturday it's suppose to be about 62*. I may do a few outdoor activities myself! Hell, at that temp, compared to what it's been, I may even take a dip in Lake Michigan!

Since this is on the bottom, I don't think you'd need more than R-11 or... R-19--if you plan on camping during the winter months. Menard's has a sale on faced and unfaced insulation right now too. As for closing it up, if for no other reason, it will keep the "critters" out of there.

Eric

Yep seal it up. I bet most airstreams have been opend up in a simular way. Our 59 has a access hole with a new panel fit in the same area to access the drains and black water valve.
It looks like somebody recently repair the floor. Just didn't finish the job is all.

I'm about to get into a major floor repair on the 59 and I plan to set up a removable section in tha area for access to the plumbing. I want it extend up to the axle so If I get ambitious I can add in a gray water tank without having to cut the sides loose.

Question Adding Grey Water Tank?

Thanks for the replies. I will be sealing it up, but I am not sure with what just yet!

Regarding the possible addition of a grey water tank, as I mentioned earlier, I would like to myself. Is your shower drain also low in the frame like mine? For mine, I am not sure I could get a tank low enough (would I have to raise the shower base?).

Home Depot sells galvanized sheet for pretty cheap. Either glue and screw or rivet. From the looks of it, it does not look like a BIG opening.

Check out Home Depot in the heating and vent section.

Regards,

Eric
