Nothing like the fall
weather to get me back into gear and finishing up with installing all the various inlets and outlets that have to go through the shell. The forecast is for and I quote a "parade of storms" coming this week.
So far the intalled count is
fitting for bringing in the tail light
fresh water inlet
waste water outlet
12 volt exterior socket
small 15 amp electrical
inlet for the generator
power to come in
30 amp inlet for the main power to the converter
Plus one versatile purpose inlet that can be used with various types of wires such as coax for TV or radio or cell phone signal booster or the hardwired internet connections here at the workshop space. I can also use it to bring in a power cord from portable solar
panels. Or even for bringing in a temporary supply hose from a propane
tank for a Mr. Buddy heater. I put it up by the tongue on the lower half of the shell as there is a quite an angle to the shell which tilts that inlet so that it is self draining to the exterior.
I still have one more hole to drill through the side, it is for the exhaust tube for my stove/heater.
I am thinking about putting in a vent in the cabinet for the toilet but I am going to wait and see if I need it or not. I can always add it later on.
Next up some adding in some plywood under the kitchen cabinets to extend the floor area. I need that to support the fresh and waste water containers and on the other side to support the slide out base for the toilet. Getting on the cool side for mixing up my thickened epoxy I will use to adhere that plywood but I have a trick for getting it to kick off in the cooler weather in an unheated space. I put the containers of epoxy into a hot tap water bath to warm them up before I dispense from them. Otherwise the resin is to thick to push through my dispenser pumps plus it kicks off the mix at the speed it would on a much warmer day. I can also use a heat gun to warm up the surfaces of the materials I am applying it to. Small tricks that extend the season for using fiberglass.
