There is an alarm that has explosive gasses and smoke and CO2 much better unless you are all electric which I dont remember off hand there are so many renovations going on.

Mike, I have seen those, but none that come with a battery and I will not be able to plug it in. Do you know of any ones that come with a battery?

Only a 9vdc battery back up and not sure how long the battery would last. HOWEVER just a bit of ingenuity, a battery connector, a simple zener circuit and you could knock that batt down to 9vdc and wouldn't matter about the 110AC. Let me know if you are interested or you can Google some ideas. You can also take 5 silicon diodes in series and drop the voltage down enough. It would require soldering. But there might be actual products on the market that do it, I haven't looked yet.
Good Luck. I will do something like that on mine.

You don't even have to do that. Just use a 9 volt voltage regulator.

5 x L78L09ACZ L78L09 78L09 9 Volts 100mA Voltage Regulator IC Free Shipping | eBay



Or if you want to spend the big bucks, this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Waterproof-D...item417442a32b

Chris, I am so taken back by your ingenuity! I know you guys like to talk voltage but I am really liking the BIKE RACK IDEA! And am still trying to figure out how your table extension works. I know you are so busy but if you should find the time, could you elaborate for us. Just call me, "Dummies are us". Great work!

I like the ebay option and cheap. When I was growing up we had to make our own. Of course we had vacuum tubes too.

For a few bucks its easy to convert to 9vac battery. You can buy the 9v pigtail and voila almost good to go.

I just bought 2 on ebay for 5 bucks and free shipping from China someone is going to loose on this one?

I don't know how they sell stuff this cheap. I bought a $1 electronic item with free shipping from China, and it came registered mail - yep I had to go to the post office and sign for it.

Thats 4 for less than a buck and free shipping. You would pay 4X at Radio Shack. Might as well raid the piggy bank and get those too.
Thanks Just call me Tom.

Tom & Mike. I will look into it, I want the trailer to work with no power so will see what I can come up with.

Diane. Thank you, I just hope the bike rack works when it is finished.

The dinette benches had a 45 degree angle at the end, this cost the bed a few inches. I squared off the dinette benches so the table can be placed and supported to the end. With the closet door and cabinet under the sink keeping it from going any further. This leaves a small gap between the bike rack and table, which I cut a piece of wood to fit in. I will take a picture and post it, probably easiest.

Diane, here are the pictures





The plan is to use it this summer and make the cushions in the winter, so we will see if we want to be able to open cupboards or a wider bed.

I did manage to get some body work done, but as it started raining again I was forced back into the garage.

I picked up the wrap around curtain rod, the idea being that over the counter it could hang storage, depending on what we need.

I have never used a rivet before, so I read the instructions on the back of the package and Riveted on the Starting point to the closet.



I installed the rod over the counter as well, and the bend that will allow the rod to wrap around to the other window.





The green tape is just to mark where the rod ends and the corner piece begins. Regrettably I need to Rivet through the shell to do the rest, so I will wait until after it is painted.

I stained the remaining wood pieces and cleaned the garage as I wait for the weather to improve.

Today was more of a shopping day, so I didn't get a lot done on the trailer.

One side of the trailer has lug nuts, the other bolts. So I picked up some new lug nuts.



Cleaned up the wheels and painted them brown. Here yo ucan see one painted on the trailer and the other cleaned, but before paint.



With a week 9 days before I start painting I am trying to wrap up all the details and make sure I have all the parts I need before we head out to paint.

I installed the screen door today. Sewing machine isn't working after the move so I glued it together with speed sew then sewed it together by hand. I used pine trim to install it, the piece along the closet was screwed into the shelves in the closet. Above the door the wood piece will be attached through the fiberglass and also hold the drip tray above the door.
