need to fix a small propane leak- copper compression stuff just not trailer worthy and getting beatup


shower working 100% and great, so nice.  zero prep.  step in and turn valve on and hot shower.

House deep cycle battery

12v-12v charger or just a BIG diode so you can’t kill the truck from the trailer?

How much amp we're talking about? No more than 20-30amp? Find an ignition-on source and use that to control a relay and have the relay in the trailer power aux circuit

amen.

I got as far as changing into work clothes and going outside. Then I decided I didn't want to deal with the rain and/or trying to work on the Bro in the trailer.

spent a good hour tightening all the interior wall and ceiling screws in this thing.  there are a lot of screws in a 48' trailer.  95% of them loose, a few fallen out. 

ordered a water fill/vent port for freshwater tank. 

ordered replacement door holder opener thing.

i remember tightening the screws when i painted mine.    made me think how bad the job must suck for the guy that builds these trailers every day for 8 hours a day...

that center driver Michelin finally let go 3/4s of the way to NH this weekend.  it put up a good fight for the last 10K  sweet blue smoke rooster and it was so hot had to get gloves to get it off the hub.  about an 8 minute tire change not bad. 

trailer continues to do work.  many of the screws inside and out continue to be found loose or falling out.  not sure solution with out massive labor intensive operations.
