...I would like to clarify myself about the Trillium support jack stands. At home, my Trill. is supported by total 6 jack stands: 2 rear ones, and a front one( I have 2 at front end, one with wheel for moving) from the Trill. itself, another pair of separated stands right at axle( on the frame though), and one extra, separate one in front end. In the photo of camping, due to the camping ground which is not level, I did support by only one extra stand at the right side of the Trill. to keep it level. The other side had no support at and the wheel standing on ground besides 2 rear support jacks from Trillium itself. Thanks for all inputs...

Princess Auto is the best place for most things for you trailer, including marker lights. I have purchased LED tail lights, and LED marker lights there.
LED tail lights for Trilliums on sale in June 2012
The LED tail lights are on sale now:
8V Submersible LED Trailer Light Kit | Princess Auto
Marker Lights. Not LED, but same lenses as many Trilliums:
4 x 1 in. Red Bullseye Clearance/Marker Light | Princess Auto

Rodre has been looking for this fan for a long time. Mine came with a furnace I purchased from kijiji. It has it's own converter in it. You could conceivably power your 12VDC lights from it.

See above.

The furnace vent should be to the rear of the fridge vents. Typically two vents, one above the other. The bottom one opens with thumb screws. It is necessary to open the bottom one to light an RM211.

It all depends on if you have the square brake mounting plates on your axle or not. If not, then you are probably better off to replace the axle with one that has brakes. This costs about $1000 in Calgary.
Brake mounting flange?

...As promise, today with nice weather, I did my Trillium paint job outdoor. Total labour from beginning including masking, mixing the paint, paint it 2 coats and clean up...it took me 3 hours. Total cost of the paint is...less than 150$Canadian. For those who love pictures...I will post more after touch up, and completely finish paint job. Cheer!
