Well, I got my first good look at my '73 Trillum 1300 today. I haven't taken it home yet. Still need to install a hitch on my van. For now it's in good hands...in my Dad's driveway.
It needs a good cleaning for starters. The first major fix will be the ensolite. Does anyone have suggestion where to buy it in the London - Stratford, Ontario area? Also, it needs a new roof vent. I didn't see any signs that the windows
Before I do too much cleaning of the fridge
, stove and furnace
, I'm going to tow it to my local RV place and get them to check out the propane
lines and make sure the appliances are in working order.
The wiring is a mess. There is no power inverter and I'm going to have to trace everything to figure out how its all connected. Our needs are very simple, and since we are used to tenting, we'd like to continue to do most of our camping off the grid. Assuming the fridge
will work on propane
, all we really need is some light
in the evenings. BUT, I'd like to have the ability to plug in when we feel like it. Does anyone have a wiring schematic for a trailer like this one? I'm also thinking about using a portable solar panel
to recharge during the day.
I am also planning to put in a new floor as soon as possible (its gross). i have read that some people have used the Allure flooring from HD. Any other suggestions?
So much to think about and learn. I can't wait to get it home.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone has.
