Here's an update. I've decided to not do the A/C at this time. I've wasted to much time on it trying to figure out the ducting for air intake and exhaust and how to seal the vents from water. :? :cry: With that out of the picture I've made some progress on the inside cabinets.Image

I added a panel on the inside cabinets for a 110 volt outlet, a 12 volt power supply and a few switchesImage

I added a piece of Maple on the edge of the counter and I had to notch the ends for my hatch supports when the hatch is closed. I also glued down the Formica and fitted the sink. Image

The stove came in today so started to install it and run the 3/8 copper LPG lines.Image
Tomorrow I'll work on LPG lines and hopefully get stared on the rear cabinets. The fuse block also came in so I can work on the wiring more. :) Total weight 700.2

I hooked up all the wires to the fuse block that I think I need :thinking: Hopefully. Does any body out there know how or if it's even possible to do a three way switch with 12 volt rocker switches. like you would have at the top and bottom of stairs in a house. What I would like to do is have a switch for the hot water heater inside the cabin and one in the galley. I tried Googling it and I only come up with 110 volt examples. Any ideas or help or point me in the right direction would be great. Thanks

I'm back at it finally. We went to Oregon for 5 days but I did pick up my fenders and a basic roof vent. The fantastic vent will come later on. Also when we got back I picked up a car that wasn't running and pulled it apart and have parts on order.Image
That valve is poked through the piston :( The lady said it just stopped running. :applause:
Back to the tear drop. I've been working on a holding tank but I didn't take time to take any pictures :thumbdown:
Anyway I built like the water tank with a grid of 1 1/2 ABS there's 9 rows of it in a box with 1/2" foam top and bottom and bolted to the bottom of the trailer behind the axle . Image

More progress on the pluming and electrical Image
That little tan pump you see next to the white drain pipe is for circulating the hot water from the hot water heater to the heater in the cabin. I'm using a thermostat in the cabin so when it turns on the heater it will also turn on the recirculating pump.
Here's a picture of the heater that I used.
Image
In this picture I've installed the water heater and a more pluming Image
And the pluming done. Man there's a lot of stuff in this little space but it all fit. :D Image
I built a cover for the water heater Imageto clean it up a bite and for more storage on top of it.

I made some more progress in the last few days. I've built and installed the galley cabinet frame and shelf, finished up the water filler and hooked up more 12 volt and 110 volt stuff. The 110 switch is for the hot water heater. Image

I've been working on the cabinet doors this week. Image
Here's a close up of a door. I did a black walnut inlay and i still need to do the hinges and latches. Image
Here's a picture of the inside cabinet doors. I haven't decided if I'm putting door in the lower openings yet I might just use the trailer and see what we put in those and see if we need doors. Image
The outer doors will be hinged on the outer edge and the center door will be hinged on the lower edge so we put a laptop on it like a shelf.
