In my Bambi II, I moved the battery inside & used a AGM battery (which doesn't have to be vented). I used the area that used to hold the battery for my electric input as well as a cable input. I've used it more than once in campgrounds & am very happy with how it works out. You can see it here:

For those of you that stay at RV parks, where would you recommend placing my cable tv input and power input on the trailer? Thanks!

Our AS came with cable TV input on the street side right next to the shore power inlet.

Thanks guys! I knew I could count on you! I'm going to repurpose these holes on the rear street side that were originally for the water heater

Hey cwf, that looks great! I unfortunately already ordered these other ones awhile back that I can't return. I think that one you have is way more era-accurate. Ugh, having major buyers remorse.

Got the shell back onto the frame... Very very stressful stuff. And had a minor panic attack when it looked like my wood floor was a couple inches too big in the back, but once I removed my inner framing I was able to stretch it over and it was a perfect fit.

Yea! Clap, clap, clap!

I'm glad it is coming together for you. I was reading another shell off thread where the person just cut the corners at 22" radius since his floor was rotted away. He said the shell had some flexibility and matched up pretty well. Maybe it's like putting on a pair of shoes. The shoe flexes as we jam our heels into them.

Thanks guys! And yeah, for any of you other poor souls doing a shell off, don't panic is it doesn't line up exactly, there is some wiggle room.

Has anyone else installed a deadbolt? I saw this and thought it was a great idea, but the execution could be a little better... Or can it?:

Yup. I did that on my previous trailer. '61 Overlander. I think the deadbolt came from VTS IIRC. It was a great addition; the brand new original lock that I'd had installed was rubbish, (pretty, expensive and barely functional at best). I'll be installing the same deadbolt on my current trailer, added security when on the move and to some extent when parked unattended too. I've also found locking hinge pins too...

Thanks! I'm going to look into one of those fancy keypad locks too, would be cool to leave the keys at "home"
