I'm terrified to put a fan in my trillium or reseal the windows! The little broken egg is looking fab!

Thats funny! My wife and I were joking about that. I told her I was going to have to hire all the Kings Men to fix this one! Thank you for the complements!

4 years ago I knew nothing about FGRvs, you spend enough time around here and in the classic boat forums on other sites, and it wont be long before you are popping out windows and fixing them as a weekend project. As for water! that is nothing to small, Water is all of our worst fears I think! I cringe every time It rains!

The heater came with the trailer, It's seventies vintage. It's very similar to the Mr. Buddy flame grid heaters but significantly thinner. Sure puts out the heat though! It actually roars when it is going! it was previously mounted below and in front of the sink. It needed a bit of RnR to get it back to running order. It was pretty beat. I am hoping that over there it was be in a less traffic area.

I am a huge fan of the Wave 3 catalytic heaters. They are super safe and are even much smaller. A lot of the folks here use them. They put off less condensation than the flame grids do as well as being more efficient. When my pocket book affords I will probably upgrade to one of those. That was my master plan, because I was not certain I could resurrect that one. But now that it's fixed up I really like it!

After much research, I have concluded that the axle is indeed aftermarket. And is specifically lower profile. The mounting brackets were slightly wider than the frame and there was some angle welded on to accommodate. The spring seams pretty good. And the arms have a slight up angle to them. But the camber is correct so if it's a flip job they did it correctly i guess. What a relief I was sure I was looking at a replacement.
