    Hi Steve, Good to hear from you. You will need to lift the back of the shell a little bit to slide the new floor under it. It sounds like you have removed everything necessary to get the new piece in. Just get a jack in between the frame and the inside of the shell. I used a floor jack with a vertical 4 x 4 going up to a horizontal 2 x 4, to help spread the weight out along the ceiling.
    I forget how the panel order went, but I remember figuring mine out by looking at the paint overlaps and such.
    Got to get to work, the boss is giving me the eye.
    Best to you,

    Hi Rich,
    Getting a little overwhelmed here with the heat!I get tanks next week and will move on with the floor.A couple of questions.
    If I start at the back piece do I jack up the shell there to fit the piece?The bolts are removed from the channel up to the wheel wells.Anything else to loosen?
    Can you give me the order on replacing panels.I know 2 ceiling pieces first.Then end caps and upper panels or end caps first.Don't remember.Thanks,Steve

    Thanks. Finally think I am working out how to use the Forum. Too much to learn with cyber space

    That's horrible that new ones have so many issues. Seems most are QC issues- just stupid business ethics. They are shooting themselves in the foot. I'd rather be on a waiting than suffer w problems.They are trying to build so many too fast.They've given into"gimme now" societial pressure Need to rethink that for longevity.
    Complete redo.Interior & inner skins come out,shell off the frame. Outer rivets checked, re-viveted where needed, revulkemed. New wiring, new insulation. Frame will be used as a template for a new, beefed up where needed & added framework/support for tanks. New wheels. New custom wood floor. Then I can put it together inside- which will take a while. Once I have it in the shop, I can design hidden plumbing, etc. It's a big project but I am very hopeful and excited about it! This trailer has seen other countries/has been overseas. It'll feel good to give her a new life.

    Thanks for your support!
