Currently it's at my parents farm as I don't have anywhere to store it in the city. I'm just looking for some tips on where to start, what to look for etc. When I go out next weekend to do some work on it, I plan on giving it a good cleaning, checking the electrical
lines but beyond that I'm not sure where to begin.
I do already have a few questions just from reading the forums. What is Ensolite? Is there insulation in these little campers? Do people always have issues with condensation at night or is it just certain temperatures? (This never crossed my mind). Where do people buy replacement parts? Are they fairly easy to subsitute (i.e. boler
parts can go on a surfside
I'd greatly appreciate whatever advice and help others could give me! Thanks in advance!
Spend that week-end in the trailer. You'll soon figure out what, if anything, needs to be done. Or even what you might want to do.
I really think it's a good idea to spend some time in the trailer before mods. Check out the systems and enjoy a week end camping out at your parents place. Fix your meals in the trailer and sleep in the trailer as would if it was in some remote campground.
