I know what I am doing at this point and I will take care in bracking the superstructure well.
I have a few discoveries I am baffeled by.
1. I found 2 plastic tubes in between the inner and outer skins that look like drain tubes. They go up towerd the ceiling and down into the floor through the bottom channel/plate of the wall. Anyone know what these are. My fisrt guess was that they were drain tubes for the roof vents.
2. I found an unused 14/2WG romex wire in the circuit breaker panel going up between the inner and outer skins. It was never stripped or tied into the electric panel. What is this for. Are these units set up for AC units? Where does it end?
3. There are some cracks in the rear plastic radius ceiling to wall inner skin. Can this be glued, welded or repaired?
4. I also have two interior plastic window trims for the front left & rightwindows that have a break in it.
Can this too be glued, welded or repaired?
5. The last thing is the window trim at the sink. It is plastic and set up for a window shade. I don't want to reuse it but I need some kind of finish like the other windows. Is there a channel material I can buy to make a new window trim to match the others?
If you have any answers pleaser let me know.
1. That's the drain line for the roof AC.
2. That's the power wiring for the roof AC.
3. Those cracks. if fixed properly, can be painted over, and never be seen again. Typically, those cracks suggest that the trailer was locked up for a long time, and the interior temperature, repeatedly, was sky high.
4. Same as # 3.
5. You will have to fix the galley window trim as it's no longer available.
You didn't ask, but if the trailer was indeed parked for a long time, then part of your "check out before repairs begin" should include checking out the axle rubber rods.
