With the separation due to the virus I've been able to make some real progress on the Puck to bring it into compliance with US electrical standards. I've been able to tear out the 240V system and replace the power panel with a 110V unit. I've deleted the 240V outlets and added a 120V outlet with two USB charging ports. I spent most of a day underneath the Puck replacing the two connection cords with a standard US seven pin connector and replaced the shore power connection. I've also figured out a way to add an onboard water tank with a 12v pump and added safety chains. I should have it all done by next week so I'll be ready to camp once this crisis abates.

Why does the trailer door have a vent in the lower part?

When the roof is popped up and one or more of the triangular shaped windows in the canvas is unzipped, you get a nice chimney effect draft to keep the trailer ventilated. There is screen behind the vents to keep the bugs out.

Hey I was cleaning out the barn yesterday and I found a trailer hitch for a bug.

The Puck is all back together and my refrigerator mod seems to be working. All I had to do is replace the 240V heating element with a similar sized 120V one and it cooled off when plugged into shore power. Today I added some 2" spacers between the axle and the frame to get a little more ground clearance and give me room for a bigger tire. Pucks use a 135/80R13 which is 22" in diameter - and that size is hard to find. So I want to go to a 24" diameter 175/80R13 tire which is much more available.

Got the new wheels and tires on it this week - it took a while to find a source for the wheels that was willing to ship to the USA. Its ready for its first camping trip - which may be delayed until fall because of the Covid-19 situation. It sits a little higher with the new tires and 2" spacers on it so it gives me a little more ground clearance and matches its tow vehicle a bit better.
