    The sides are open to under the trailer. Those are the intake vents for the air that is blown over the condenser before being blown out the rear of the unit. You need to the intake and exhaust side of the condenser separate so your not trying to cool the condenser with hot air that was already blown over it.

    As expected the AC is worthless against the sun. Where I'm working on the trailer it's pointing south and gets direct sun on the roof and one wall if it's day light. The AC does fine after dark but can't even hold the same as the ambient outdoor temp in the sun. Hopefully I'll get the insulation done today, but I'm sure how much it will help. From previous experience it's hard to cool a metal box in direct sunlight.

    I got all but one wall insulated. I only got 4-5 hours each day so I didn't make the progress I was hoping for. Really not much to see.


    I did find several places there are 2 layers of skin on it. Looks like they tried but couldn't remove the first skin that the panel colors didn't match so they just went over it. I'm not sure if thats good or bad. Double should be stronger but could lead to other problems down the road. It's impossible to tell how much of it is double by just looking. I'm going to make the dealer aware of it and see if they can get United to up the warranty on the skin. I could only see when the had cut or ripped the inner layer.




    I also found a major air leak. The way they built the V nose was water tight but left about 75 sq inches open for air flow. It may have been by design, but was not helping in my case.


    I've also been improving on the wiring as I go. It was ok at best. To many scotch locks for me and I want to be able to get to the wiring in the future. At least they left plenty of slack.

    I finally got a chance to do a little work tonight. I did get a chance to put up 2 of the lights I plan on using earlier this week. They are temporary right now in the factory locations. Much brighter. There will be 5 of these when it's done.




    I also found something tonight when I pulled down the left wall I should have caught earlier. One of these things is not like the other.



    They had it the first time, but missed it on the reskin.


    Other than that I just got some insulation up.


    I was hoping to be much farther by this time, coming up on a month now. My schedule and the weather have not been cooperating. Once the wall and ceiling are up weather won't to much of a problem and I'm hoping to get all the insulation up this weekend. I've spent 8 days away from home riding this month, so it wasn't wasted time. I do have the buggy sitting needing a service and with a torn cv boot and a bent tie rod that both were just replaced on the trip over the fourth. I was to pissed to fix it when I got home. I need to look at my riding plans and figure out when it needs fixed by and that will cost me the better part of a day.

    I finally got to do some work on this thing. The missing light is repaired, all the insulation is finally done, the drop in the living quaters is done and the first ceiling panel is up, the wall is framed between the LQ and garage and has some sheeting on it. I also figured out the interlock for the breaker box and mounted it.

    Insulation done and drop started up front.



    Drop ceiling done.



    Interlock to keep the shore power and inverter from being switched on at the same time. I'm going to move some stuff around so the converter will be locked out while on the inverter.


    Wall framed. It finally looks different when something is done. Then I had to stop and do some cleaning to be able to do anything more.


    Some sheating on the wall and the breaker box mounted.

    I am surprised you are using wood studs and not metal studs. Metal ones are lighter.

    I need the weight up front to help with tongue weight when there are two buggies loaded in the rear. The wall covering is 1/2 tongue and groove. The other walls will be built from 2x3 though. This wall just needs to be stout as it will have a lot weight up high.

    I've made some progress, but my camera is having issues. Got a few pics that I've had people send me.

    Ceiling is up, bunk framed and the bottom bunk is sheeted and the bathroom walls are mostly framed.

    The goofy double stud at the end of the wall is there because I made a change after that wall was up. It did go all the way to the nose but I decided it would be a better use of space to cut over about a foot to give some more space to the bathroom.

    It got it's first vehicle in it today. Serving as a shed for my nephews until we leave Thursday for ride. Plenty of space, even with materials stacked on both sides. There is about 12 foot left for another buggy in front of it.
