Uhaul furnace vent

HI,

I put a small access hatch where my vet was. I had to cut the hole a bit bigger. I now can reach in the hatch for a lighter, bug spray, knife, flashlight or bottle opener. I like it and I use the hatch lots

Trailer is dirty. Don't judge. I covered it in brewery stickers cause that's my style.

Great idea, Benjamin! Any problems with leaks? Can you show a pic with the hatch open?

I put a light there, for use like a porch light, 12 volt.

My first house has an old unused milk chute. I installed a GFCI outdoor outlet behind the door. One could do something similar here with a small hatch.

After camping this weekend and having a need for an external outlet, that was my other thought for this hole.

I do like Bob's idea of an outdoor light too, though I'd like mine a bit higher. My main concern is leaks from cutting an access hole into the fiberglass.

I'll admit, a higher mounted light would be better, or at least an angled or shaded lens. The light I used is commonly found on the back of the cab of a truck tractor for use when hooking to a trailer in the dark. I saw one Airstream trailer that was heavily customized, and one thing the owner did was use an automotive spotlight for his outside light, the kind that has the inside control handle to aim it with. I have a couple of those but don't want to make a hole in the shell to mount it, and they're kind of heavy too.
