picked up materials to build out the front frame work.  got all the parts on the floor.


the waste tank i got is not going to work unless it goes under the trailer.  boo.  have to put shitter flange in a different spot (not sure if possible) or get new tank, or really re think the floor plan to something wacky with Toilet in the middle of the trailer with 1 partial floor support beam cut.  Boo.

other option would be put 9" deep tank below trailer frame, but that only gives me 6" ground clearance.

I would say you could use a basement ejector toilet and pump it to a tank anywhere on the trailer bit man, they are like a $1k

i looked around, couldnt find anything i liked.  decided to canobilize one of my military boxes and use it.  want to knock out this thing this weekend.  Ran to camping world and picked up the toilet gromet to move the location.  grabbed two lengths of PVC on the way home.  have sewer elbows left from version 1 of 572 air intake. 


Got a plan and most things placed.  got one wall framed up.  Tomorrow will be commit day drilling 4" hole through trailer floor, and plazma some holes in beams to bring the dump valve up front. 

looking good. so far.

noticed the other day a fail in my design, erik probabably would have though about.


the trim board im using apparently does not lik temerature changed.  installed when it was cold, now that its warm everything is buckled and looks like crap.  not sure solution.  glue or more screws?
