need a good laugh? scamp renno continues

Ok, if you have read any of my posts, you might remember that our Scamp was once used by an ice fisherman.

Here are a few things that made me laugh while cleaning it this weekend
1. Well, I thought it was funny when we discovered the 3 holes cut out of the floor of the trailer to fish out of.
(a few of you joked about not needing a toilet. my mother in law said
"We could fertilize campgrounds all across America". HAH!)

Today I was cleaning off the cabinet doors I removed them so that I could prep them for painting, and inside one of the doors there was a little piece of tape labeled- OutHouse 5-15-5. What? did the OutHouse have a combo? Was my trailer used as an OUthouse? doubt it...

2. The owner installed a cigarette lighter (just like the ones in a car) on the side of the top cabinet next to the bench/bed. The wires were old, but I kept the lighter I'd rather have that then a hole-good conversation piece

3. While setting up the bunk beds and giving them a good clean, my husband found a magazine "pin-up" taped under the top bunk.
(let's just say I am glad my young girls weren't around when we discovered that one)-We laughed about that for a good while.

*the backside of the "pin up" had an amazing piece of folk art that we are actually going to frame and hang back up in the Scamp.
(nobody will ever know what is on the other side, unless I meet up with any of you at an egg rally) hah!

!
you sure its not the standard 12V plug in that Scamp normally installs in that location? It does look a lot like a cigarette lighter in a car.

cigarette lighter

Carol, here is a pic I took.
I just assumed it was a cigarette lighter because of the flame.

Looks like it was installed as a Cigarette lighter but without the lighter plug it is just a 12V accessory plug. My Casita has a factory installed one without the lighter plug. I do get some use out of it. for one thing I have a small 12V fan. I think it is a handy item to have. I'd make sure it has a good inline fuse.

Many of the Scamps come from the factory with a 12 volt plug in that location. Looks to me as though he decided to add a lighter into it rather than a USB phone charger or a battery monitor that you will find it handy for.

Having a 12V socket like that can be pretty handy. I have one in my trailer. I can run my ElectroWarmth mattress pad, charge devices, check the battery voltage with a tester, run a AA battery charger, and so on.

It's definitely a feature you will find handy.
