i do sort of like the small trailer being pulled with truck idea.....
i want to carry lots and lots of fresh water (fountain sodas) and that would not only free up a lot of room in the truck, but let me carry a larger tank along with the genny...... drop it off 50 feet or so from where setting up and run a 50 amp shore power cord..... then space/noise/vibration/etc... is never an issue
Where do you guys live? I'm in Springfield Illinois and could never carry fresh water on a trailer for 3 or 4 months out of the year. Our winters are not as brutal as some parts of the country but we do get a week or two of zero temps during the winter. But we never know in advance when they will happen so it would be a very big gamble to try and carry water on the trailer. And this last winter we had 9 inches of snow in one storm. I was closed for a week, but there were some BM restaurants closed for 3 days as well. One other thought
Our city allows me to go to city hall and pay for parking spaces in advance, then the city Police Dept bags the meters with no parking signs. And of course when I pay they give me a permission slip to park in those metered spots. They charge $2.75 per meter, per day and I'm supposed to give the city 10 days notice on the days I need the meters. But I have had meters flagged in as little as 3 days.
So I could go to the city and get two meters flagged, for Monday in front of the Secretary of States office about 600 employees, and two meters flagged for the Springfield Clinics Building for Tuesday, about 1200 employees, and on and on for the entire week. But there may at some point be a down side to this. Each of those buildings has on site cafeterias, and the companies that run them are going to be plenty pissed if I show up every monday and take even 20% of there normal lunch business. And I would be upset as well, so I'm not sure when or if I'm going to do this. What do you think?
PS I'm not trying to high jack this thread. Sorry.
