Yes it looks beautiful. Thanks for the panning invitation. Not sure when I will be back through that area. I have done a bit of panning in the omineca and barkerville areas.

My fisherman buddy told me to use engine degreaser/cleaner on my aluminum, wow that stuff works great!
Here's a pic where I just sprayed it on the top and middle rail left it for a few minutes and wiped with paper towel

I'll get another pic later of the finished window, I used the degreaser and fine steel wool to scrub them down

Just getting up to date now, I've got 2 weeks left before my trip to the cariboo, so this needs to get done because it's coming with me
I used krylon spray paint for my cover, plate holder and heater vent.

I also installed the windows and got new rubber and Lexan windows front and back.
I wired up my solar system and installed a 1000 watt inverter, and installed underlay and vinyl flooring in the front compartment spaces.

Solar is up and running
I may reconfigure so I can use some of the storage in that compartment.
Fantastic fan installed, was worried about how much it would protrude down from the ceiling but it's not bad at all

Well I'm back from the cariboo and everything held up mostly. I tried plumbing my propane before I left but it leaked like crazy! Almost every flare. Any tips on propane plumbing? I'm not by Abe means finished this reno, I just got to the point of having somewhere to sleep, still need to fix up the propane and finish interior.

Up in the Cariboo mountains

Sure glad the trailer is raised up, I went 12km up the mountain and through 3 big cross ditches, wasn't sure if I was gonna make it out!
I did get a crack above my door support, looks like it just needs a bit of reinforcement with glass.

Gas leaks

I am no expert on gas fitting but it seems to me the leaks would be either from a defective flare joint or leaking threads on the flare fitting. Spray some soapy water on the joints and see if it is leaking from the flare or the threads. Have you used teflon gasfitting tape on the threads? Is the flare well formed and tightened sufficiently?
