Snow belt floor replacement

If you need a new floor, do'nt want to tie up the A S in summer and have no heated shop in winter, I stumbled onto this last fall. Pull it up on car ramps, crib up the ft a-frame and the tail frame. Jacks under both axle plates. Pull out the ramps and remove the axle. Lower the belly pan at the seams. Remove the waste tank. Get some common bails of hay or straw and "seal up" the whole parimiter of the trailer. I used an inexpensive radiant propane heater inside, with the temp in the teens it would warm up in 30 /40 min and could work with just a sweatshirt. Once you remove a section of floor you have access to the bottom. Use one end for work space while you replace the other. Kinda fun, workshop & project all in one.
