I have a LiteHouse 4two. The trailer has a small LP gas tank mounted on the tongue, just under the spare tire. It's the old style of gas bottle and is going to cost a few bucks if I replace it.
I've never done any cooking inside the trailer except for making coffee on a rainy morning. For us, cooking outside is part of the goodness of hanging out in the woods. We carry a table, portable stove and the new style LP gas bottles in the back of our pickup (along with a campfire tripod and chains; but that's another story).
That brings up the battery
. Right now, the electrical
system is the "weak link" in the trailer. The current battery
rides above the axle
under one of the fiberglass benches. It's a booger to get in and out. I'd like to install a larger battery
or perhaps two.
My plan is to remove the current gas bottle from the tongue and replace it with some kind of battery box. I figure I'll be able to engineer a way to connect standard portable LP gas cans to the existing connection; probably with parts from the big blue hardware store.
So I have two questions: Am I doing something foolish, and What do I do with the old bottle?
