Rear Floor In Place!  (finally)
Rear Floor In Place! (finally)
Description The rear floor is now in place, bolted down, and as not yet shown in the picture, all the cutouts for the tanks are done. Anyone contemplating this project should know... everything takes 10 times longer than you anticipate. Especially if you are working alone.

Temporary Tires
Temporary Tires
Description I saved some tires from my Suburban and bought 4 new steel wheels to have them mounted on. These will never hit the road and are just for moving the trailer around on my property. I have 4 brand new tires on aluminum wheels in storage. The trailer has been up on jack stands for almost 2 years after the axles were installed. Quite a difference in the height as compared to the old axles.

Battery Box
Battery Box
Description The replacement I built for the trashed ABS single battery box. This will hold three turned the other way. I have plastic bins for the batteries to sit in. There will be an aluminum screen on the inside of the aluminum ventilation port and a sealed and secure lid on top. If anyone is looking for the fittings to pass the wires through, they are called compression cable fittings purchased at Grainger. $2.50 each. I also put a battery shut off on the terminal. This all fits comfortably under the couch I will be building.

Battery Box
Battery Box
Description The ABS battery box was trashed and I wanted to have more than one battery, so I removed it and built an riveted in an aluminum "Sally Port" to connect to a battery box I built. This port allows plenty of ventilation and drains off any water that may get in. It will have a piece of aluminum screen on the battery box end to keep critters out.

Rebuilt 12v Fuse Panel
Rebuilt 12v Fuse Panel
Description I changed over to blade type fuses for the running lights, etc., as well as the main interior 12v circuits. For the battery and charging I bought fuse blocks used in high end audio installations with 50amp ANL fuses with LED's that indicate a fuse is blown. Everything all hooked up, and every circuit in the trailer worked flawlessly. No dimming or anything.

Fried 12v Fuse Panel
Fried 12v Fuse Panel
Description This is what the PO left me with. Melted fuse holders, wires hanging all over the place. What a mess! Finally got around today to rebuilding it.

First View Of My Streetside Awning
First View Of My Streetside Awning
Description I never opened the awning before because the strap was missing and I "had plenty of other things to do" that were more important. Today I got ambitious and got my ladder out, climbed up, and hand rolled out the awning. It looks as though it was never even opened. I attached a clamp on one end to prevent it from rolling back up and cleaned it with the hose. Now I need to get a replacement strap and rivet it on. The curb side awning needs to be examined next. Well, that is one less expense I have on this awning!

Extra Gray Tank
Extra Gray Tank
Description Found an RV Service company going out of business here in Tampa and they were having a giant GOOB sale. (Going Out Of Business). Found this 50 gallon waste tank, brand new and haggled them down to $50. I'm going to install it under the bed area and use it to catch all the kitchen sink water so I will be able to boondock longer. It is a fairly easy retrofit. I will put a valve on the back end and connect it to the existing gray. Then I can dump it through the other tank when necessary. Also picked some exterior grade and thickness aluminum sheets. A 4' x 7' and 2' x 7' pieces. $30 for the both. A good day as an Airstream Picker.

Axles Done! Shocks Done!
Description Another 3000 hours and about $6K and I will be close to getting this beast done! Shocks in place showing the clearance to the frame. I'm happy with the spacing.
