As I have said before, one great benefit of trailer restoration is learning by necessity- through trial and error, owner’s manuals or, mostly, the Internet. From the banal to the arcane and everything in between, I have become conversant with the best composting medium for poop, Pex plumbing and the intracacies of electricity/wiring. Sometimes I get in over my head but it’s kept my brain active when it otherwise may have atrophied – particularly during these covid – 19, sensory-deprived times. Let me demonstrate through pictures what my grey matter has been up to lately:
The 12v fans pictured above are designed to affix to car radiators to supplement cooling in especially hot conditions. Who knew? After a lot of research, I picked these up to move air in and out of Sparta on the ceiling and behind the stove. Many tiny-housers use large computer fans (also 12v), but I chose these for their superior capacity (CFM) and ruggedness. They will be a bit noisier, however.
Meanwhile, I came up with a solution to the rounded floor trim for the observation lounge. It’s not pretty but what the hell. It will be behind the couch.
To further the excitement, look what arrived yesterday:
Stay tuned. I may be in for a shock. Help, Mr. Wizard!
