Back on track!

After several months of being derailed by work, we are back on track!  We have made a little progress here and there over the last few months, but it doesn’t seem like much. Although, when I finally uploaded our pictures starting in January, yes…January :/, we have accomplished more than I thought!

Our trailer never had an A/C unit. From what we understand the proper placement of an A/C unit, if you wanted to add one, was to cut another hole between the two rear vent holes.  To us this seemed crazy. Why wouldn’t you just put it in the center?  Then we realized the ribs  weren’t continuous at the center vent hole.  They stopped half way up on either side.  To fix the problem, Dan riveted aluminum channel to the existing ribs and buck riveted it to the outer skin.  Now the vent hole will be strong enough to hold a new A/C unit and it will be centered on the roof. I’m happy!

We used Trempro to seal all the seams from the inside, installed all the new wiring, got the new 7-way plug wired up and installed new seals on the two front stationary windows.  We insulated behind the end caps and got those big boys back up! It was a challenge for two people so we used some big wood closet rods we had to help support them.

That brings us up to date on our progress since the Holidays! Sure doesn’t seam like much but…we are BACK ON TRACK!

  1. Looks impressive to me! I’d love to be able to restore one at that level. You will know what is inside every wall and how everything works. So cool! Thanks for sharing the slideshow of your progress. 🙂
