Nice Mule!!!!

Word of advise on the spray foam tho.... I see you are using the "red" Great Stuff, I would use the "blue" Window and Door Great Stuff. It expands less and thus using less product to cover the same area and less cleanup, plus it won't bulge the wall panels if you shoot it into a hole.

Actually have some of both. The door/window stuff is working well, and once it's dry the globs just break off.

Never too late, would be a lot warmer when you and Mutt pass out in there from drinking too much juice!

Thought about going the 2x6v route... honestly don't think I'll need that much capacity in there though. Just need something to clean up the genset power.

Looks great!

Where do you plan to mount your battery?

When I did mine, I had a box I build beneath the tool box, in the non-door side of the 'v' nose. I also used it as a place to store the shore power cord, bottle jack, that sort of stuff. I also considered building a metal box with a lip, that would drop into the floor, with a flush lid on it, and keep it underneath the floor to save space. I had the big 4-place though, so space was not that crucial, and... I had a full upper SS tool box mounted to the wall.

Saw your thread... looks like a real nice setup. Don't have the real estate up front for the toolbox like yours.

Since I store the trailer off-site, I'd like the battery (one or more) to be somewhat portable so I can take it out and keep it warm and charged in my garage during the week, then pick it up, throw it in the trailer, plug it in, and be done with it.

What I'm planning on doing is a deep-cycle marine battery in a plastic box and setting it on the floor next to the electrical box. Maybe bolt a tray to the floor to keep it from sliding around, maybe a shelf on the wall... not sure yet.

More work done this weekend.

Hole in the front of the trailer that was patched. Pulled off the patch.


Then cut the hole out.


Built a box and stuck it in there.


Fits between the ribs


And screw it down


Add some latches and a lock


then string some copper tubing and stick the propane hose and regulator in the box.


Tubing comes out the top-inside corner of the box...


up and along the corner...


secured to the ceiling


and across to where the furnace is going.

Ceiling down...


and stuff some insulation up there.


Front corner isn't pretty, but we can foam in the gaps and hide it with ceiling panel.

Didn't take a whole lot of pics of sunday's work... But, with the insulation in the ceiling, shot some foam into the gaps and put the panels and trim back up.


New brake wire for the brakes. A few of the wires had broken off, so I think only two or three of the wheels were actually braking.


Scratch my head, please...


Ran all the wiring into the junction box at the front of the trailer. The trailer connector comes in here, all the lights come in here, and get split off at the terminal block in back. I'll add a 2nd terminal block for 12v distribution with the battery, generator, furnace, etc.
