Thanks everyone for the kind words!
Hank, it's not the first time I have been associated with Rube Goldberg. Haha, Not sure it's a good thing, going about doing simple tasks in a complex way can get a net thrown over a guy if he isn't careful :?

The fresh water drain valve and tube are in and the pump is mounted and plumbed (not pictured.)
Also, I got the hot water manifold done and mounted. Just a little FYI,
The locations where the manifolds are mounted was determined
by where the stainless hoses from the shower mixer reached to.

A close up of the hot water manifold.
One connection to the water heater, another
to the shower and one to the sink.

It is looking really good. I hope the pressure test goes well. My money is on no leaks.

Iconfabul8, Howdy;

I see you're going the "Industrial Strength" path. Can't have to many shut-off valves,
:thinking: , think I've read that somewhere else on here ... :thinking: , but I agree.

:thumbsup: , :thumbsup: .

Finally getting around to building the DC panel. Made a discovery by accident
(was drilling the hole for a different switch,) If you drill a 1 1/2" hole with a
butterfly bit, you only have to chisel out a little from the corners to make
a single rv switch fit nicely in a piece of wood.

Nothing too special about a crimped on spade, except that It alowed me to put
a little meat on the wire so the connecter (very long ground bar that I cut into little pieces)
would bite on it.

Cut off the prongs

Back view of early wiring stage. Missing the white wire from the shunt to the ground buss.

View when you walk in the door. Still need the countertop and tiny sink installed.
I believe I am going to leave the front open like this. All along I have been shooting for
the Captain Nemo/Starwars/SteamPunk type look.

That's some nice Journyman like work right there. Just a pleasure to watch a pro do his thing.

Iconfabul8, Howdy;

When I first viewed your last post I was thinking this guy is bumpin' into
the steam-punk zone... Then I read the post and you confirmed it.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I've been chomping at the bit to get this little job done.
Built this little brass plate for my volt/amp meter

It's kinda nice to finally see what's going on in those wires.

Thanks, yeah I am not a huge fan of behind the wall plumbing in a trailer. I have two pex connections under the bathroom floor and they even make me a little nervous.

Finally got the last few pieces of insulation stuffed into the top corners.

YAY! more finish molding up. :D I was handed a pile of this molding when I picked up the trailer because
I ordered the trailer without the molding installed. Now I can custom fit it to my build just the way I want it.

Hmmmm... I didn't get any moulding with my trailer. That makes for a nice clean finish in a hard to deal with area. The radius corners everywhere don't work well with normal construction materials. I do like the high privacy windows.
Very stealthy from the outside. ... 8) ...
