Hi i am!

Hello

I just purchased a surfside trailer and joined the site to assist with repairs and restoration. Looking forward to fixing up my little trailer and heading out camping soon! This site is a fantastic resource for information and tips! Thanks for all the great advise!

John

Welcome to FGRV, John! Hope you'll post some pictures of your new trailer and your work as it progresses. Just don't let projects interfere with camping! Enjoy.

Hello

Out for our first camping trip! Trailer is working good a few little problems! Tripped electrical and can not find reset. The rest may be broken and previous owner may rigged up a fuse! Something for when we get home! I see an electrical upgrade coming.
A few pictures!

Did you look in the compartment (if you have that one) on the left front corner, that is only accessible from the outside? I have seen breaker boxes in Surfsides in that location.

Thanks Bob! But no go! It looks like the button for the breaker is broken! No push to reset! Something for the driveway at home. The have an extension cord for now! Enough for us for now! Thanks again!

Are you ever in good company. This same thing happened on the moon during the first moon landing to a launch critical circuit breaker. One of the astronauts found that the cap from a pen would work to reset the breaker and the rest is history.


Let us know if you are able to achieve escape velocity.

Hi Bob! I tried the pen method! Lol!
I pulled it all a part in the driveway last night. Looks like someone glued switch to back of power box. The glue must have given out. I cut a small strip of steel metal. Wrapped some electrical tape around the metal so it would not short breaker switch. On couple of self taping screws in the right place an d Bob is your Uncle good to go!
Thanks again for you help Bob! PS I was a big fan of Magiver! Also, a big fan of space program! Thinking outside of the box is a favourite pass time of mine! Lol!
