57 and still want the body of an 18 year old female. Not in a transvestite way you understand, but in a mutually loving way.

Now ... what the hell were we talking about?

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)
How about this style wheel chock http://www.jfmco.com/shop/motorcycle...up-wheel-chock

You are probably aware of this but there are chocks out there that mount on e-track. I have used them for maximum flexibility.

That is what I was going to do but I would have done 4 strips down the trailer at least and it just wouldn't work right with my layout...

So...back to the floor, cut in the first piece of Etrack so it ends up flush to the floor tile.



Looks good!



I cut in the wheel chock holders, have to clean up the wholes but should work well.

Let's do the math:

30 min. fish sticks in the oven
8 min. to find where you put the paper plates and plastic dinner ware and set the table.
2 min. to scarf the stuff down

That leaves 2 minutes to, uh, perform other services.

You, sir, are a stud and I congratulate you on exceeding my own skills.

Ok, I'm recovered from my mini marathon and am back at work...

I have come a long way!



I wanted the holes to be cleaner for the wheel chocks and found I could drill by hand and get a nice clean cut.



and then flipped it over to trim the hole,



And found this, I LIKE IT!!!



Pain in the butttt fitting it all but everything will line up nicely I think. Have to stop because each piece needs to be bolted down before I can do final installation.

Even though it was cold and we had 30 mph winds here today I manned up and mounted the battery vent, power cord, water fill doors, and 120 outlet on the exterior so I could tie everything into the trailer.



I tried to hook up the battery vent( and water fill) but the 1-1/4" tubing I bought was way too stiff even after heating it up it just won't bend.



I mounted the water pump above the tank to save space but it vibrated like a coin operated bed in Reno because it was centered between the studs.



So I moved it down and close to the stud, seemed much better.
