Shoveling out the manlift

Just thought I'd share and show off.

After taking out the center ceiling panel I noticed the A/C is caving in the roof. See
I'll need to fix this before I can start putting the trailer back together..
I am going to need to remove the A/C unit and put some bracing in the ceiling and then reinstall the A/C.
I have a manlift so I thought I would put it to work instead of using scaffolding but first I had to dig it out of 4' of snow. The manlift sits next to the driveway and it just got buried from snow blowing the driveway, took me about 4 hours to to dig it out, took another few hours to get it out of the rut it had created from sitting there in the fall rainy season, it weighs 12000 pounds.

Read more on my blog.
