pvangel nice build!

I can highly recommed the seabreeze heater for your application. I use one in my RV.

It would heat that trailer perfectly. Being that it's thermostatically controlled, you don't have to worry about your inside temperature fluctuating wildly.

Definitely worth checking into.

Soooo.... spent the whole day chasing the fuse blowing problem....not good!



I couldn't figure it out and took everything apart I had done the day before and pretty much gave up and called a friend that is a electrician. He checked everything that I had done and all was fine but I still had an issue with the line to the fan, because he did not do the work he started checking every wire for continuity or grounding and of course I ran 4 wires to every point. Well after an hr of checking he said the hot line to the fan must be grounding to the frame some where so we cut it up top( after tearing everything apart I had just done and taking apart the fan) by the fan and ran a jumper wire up and it worked with no short!



So now I had to get a power line up to the fan ( which I did check to make sure it worked before I put the ceiling and walls up) but luckily I had put 4 wires to all points when wiring (except the fan of course)so had a spare in the cabinet which I was able to use...so now I am back to building not fixing!!!!!

Had to take a break from electrical work before my head exploded so I decided to get started on the floor but have to do all the tie down points and wheel chocks first so loaded the bikes back in for some layout...



Need four in there so there was a lot of head scratching and marking going on today, and it was too early to start drinking...



I THINK it is set for four so started to lay the floor tile in, everything will be flush to the tile when done so will cut in as I go.



Had to go to my motherinlaws 80th birthday party tonight so quit early, she's 4'10" of Italian dynamite and I can only hope I am in that kind of condition when I am 80( she could kick my but if she wanted too)

You should get her to help with the flooring then.

Bikes are going to be a tight fit!

I think I have it all set for four bikes!

Nice build, want to borrow your old van and do the same in it? Well not the same, but it could use some updating

I'm booking time in winter 2014 now so get your time slot in now

That van really did work great for dirt bikes, glad you still have it and are enjoying it!

I was able to clean up the rest of the wiring tonight except the water pump which I have to mount first so did a quick layout check.

16 gallon water tank in place and my Honda EU 1000.



I did reinforce the floor of the cabinet before installing to make sure it held the weight I was planning on putting in there, cooler just fits!



And I wanted to be able to put the boots in there as well.





Now I can mount the tank and pump.
