The large one is a 12v outlet and the tiny one is a switch that supplys power to the water pump.

The little faucet is the original hand pump.

The wall covering is called ratfur which is the wall covering in Scamps.

Congrats on getting your new axle done. How much ground clearance did you end up with under the back skids? I would be afraid to put a valve under mine it could get knocked off if I hit a bump.

Here are the water tank and pump pics.
Tomorrow I will put an elbow on the drain nipple coming through the bottom of the trailer and add a valve.

Hope this helps.

The pictures do help, which wires did you splice into or did you have to run new ones. I can't quite tell, and which model of pump did you end up getting.

I just ran a new wire to the battery and fused it at the battery.
The pump is a $42.00 Chinese 1.5 gpm demand pump I bought on ebay.
I bought the same pump a few years ago,put it in a 13' Scamp I gave my son and it's still going strong.

Wow, that's great. I think a new axle is in my Lil trailers future. Not this year but soon.
