I put in the new shore power electrical connection and the sink drain connection as well as started on the marker lights.

I put in one of the old windows and a baby moon just to have a look, ok the window cant stay, I will strip it down clean and repaint it black and get dark lexan put in or possible replace them with new jelousy(sp) windows as I would like to keep them open while avoiding rain.

I wanted all new jelousie (sp) windows but the curve in the front and the back windows looked like it might be a problem so, I had a dark tempered glass put in, if I had it to do over I would probably use lexan for them as well put I like being able to see thru them somewhat while under tow.

That looks FANTASTIC Scott! Painting the inside of the door; very clever.

I'm doing my interior in reds, too.

Robert, Rush,

Glad you like them.

The 30 amp electrical shore connection is a marine connection I got it off the internet, they can be kinda pricey but I found one for about 60 dollars I wanted a shore connection and the plastic ones seem to yellow and deteriorate, plus I wanted a nice look.


Marinco 303SSEL-B Power Inlet Stainless Steel 30A 125V: eBay Motors (item 300451945196 end time Aug-31-10 20:58:31 PDT)


The other is my drain hose line, I made that myself using a chrome plated fitting that goes in like a shower head pipe where it comes out of the wall and a brass male garden hose barb with a brass cap cost about 2-3 bucks total.

I so wanted a chrome gravity fill ( ashtray) like the old retro trailers but couldnt find a source and I didnt like the idea of some idiot using it as an ashtray so I went with the locking hatch which contains both the gravity fill and the city hookup fitting.

Thanks Robert, I have seen your work and it is simply amazing, I wish I was a tenth as talented.

Yeah I like something unique and different. I am using a 1949-1950 CHEVY LED COMPLETE ASSEMBLY for the porch light I removed the little round red reflector and little round clear reflector and then added a LED light behind it, so the big red LED works on bright or dim via 2 switches and the little white light is on another switch.

I wanted to be able to have a porch light that I could see to work with so the white light is for that and then the red one is for ambience.....ok sitting outside drinking beer while not shining a bright white light into the next campsite.

The curve matched the curve of the burro so it will fit niceley beside the door. Oh and another thing it allowed me to put just four small holes 3 for the bolts and one for the wires.

And here it is installed, once I get it wired I will try and show it lit up.
