IMHO, I think it's pretty scary actually in my neck of the woods that I can do pretty much anything I want with my gas lines. At first I was going to put the propane tanks in milk crates under the bases. I think things like that should be regulated big time.

 I had to ask twice to make sure from the HD that I didn't need anyone inspecting that part of my build.

After a few people close to me suggested that to be 100% safe, I have it checked out after I got everything done. I agreed with them and assured them I would.

The last thing I want to do is hurt anyone b/c I might have overlooked something.

Some of the bad guys get what they deserve. LOL Since you started talking about fishing I have gone once and am dying to go again. I used to fish bass tournaments every weekend 12 or 15 years ago, and I was shocked at the price of good bass lures when I started looking on the internet this week. Check this out.

Wouldn't want to get snagged with that much money on the end of your line.
It would be cheaper to go to the fish store and throw 20 dollar bills at them, wait a minute that's the strippers you throw 20's at right.
Damm business gets in the way, I haven't been out much for 10 years either. Salmon and lake trout are my favourites.

finished the stove area today. UGH, not something I liked after I got into the tin heat box.  What a pain in the A$$ to work with. had to wear gloves, that stuff slices through skin like hot butter.  I'll post more pics in the afternoon tomorrow. Got to dark, and I'm headed into the last day before my inspection tomorrow.

my trailer is 6x10, I opted out of the 6x12 for an extra $100. I wish I hadn't but I do great with what I got now. I am currently searching for an old bread truck to convert next. Sorta a winter project :-D  I will have to post more pics. for now you can see my completed trailer in the daily grind at www.thewilddogcart.com
 
I recently got my graphix and everything is running smoothly.

wow ... I can't believe you gave up 2 ft ... when you start talking enclosed spaces, 2 ft is a lot!
 
your graphics look good ... did you do the  wrap or just get the graphics individually?  the wraps are pretty reasonable on ebay and the decals are pretty cheap IMO, but I've never priced anything like that before but when you consider  air brushing and/or hand painting, everything is really cheap

yeah, 2 feet is ALOT of space that I could use. However ya live ya learn LOL. I'm getting ready to drop in another stove so i can do more cooking. My graphics cost about $500 but I got signs too. Its not a wrap, Wraps were way more expensive at the time. I am going to price them though for my bread truck project.

yeah 2 - 4 feet make a big difference.   They have wraps on ebay pretty reasonable I think ... a lot cheaper than advertising in the yellow pages with a whole lot more exposure.  
 
what we're looking at is to get everything done that has to be done, and  do the rest ourselves.  I'd rather spend the money on a new trailer that has insulation, wiring, plumbing, a/c ready to hook up and  install the countertop/cabinets and appliances.  We could either buy used appliances and replace them when money comes available or  buy what we have to have and buy the others when we get the money.
 
Right now my biggest problem is finding a good used truck with low miles

Dr of BBQ

My unit is installed and inspected, and vented to the outside.

You could vent it to the exhaust hood but with a word of caution. My exhaust hood fan is so strong it changes the air in the trailer every 30 secs. So on occasion during the summer if the exhaust fan is running it will suck the fire out on the water heater, LOL.

But if you don't have a tornado like exhaust hood you'll be fine. I really do like this new tankless water heater and for the price if it only last a year I'd be happy. It took less than 10 minutes to take the old one out and put this one in.
 
DR OF BBQ - I am catching up on some old posts regarding tankless hot water heaters and saw the link you posted several months ago.  The link is now dead....can you tell me the brand and model again of the tankless unit you are using ?  Thanks....TheIke

PS I used stainless steel braided hose with standard garden hose fittings to run my water lines. Cheap and easy to buy at Lowe's or any hardware store or even on Ebay.

 Wow what a beautiful day to be on my back all day LOL. Main gas lines are in, hands are permanently stained black,  For the most part they are in, I have to connect the T-fitting for the run from the tanks, but here are two pictures. Had to make a larger hole for the front run, Any suggestions on what to use to plug or insulate it ? I was going to use the spray foam after sliding a piece of 3/4 inch wood zapped up with some screws just to play it safe.
 
WILD DOG:  Can  you provide a source for your window on this post ??? 








It is a dry run, I plan on leaving it that way until the equipment comes and then I will tighten everything down and test it.

I can not. It came as a package with the trailer. However you can  pretty much buy them outright at any trailer sales company. I got my trailer through Cargo South Inc. in Ocilla Ga. I scoured the net and tried finding one on its own and had no luck.
 
Sorry I wasn't much help on that request :-(

"Steam table, refrigerated prep table, warming cabinet, register, small freezer, heat lamps, inner lights, dvd and monitor, water pump, vent/exhaust hood, grill and soda dispenser are what I am planning to run at this point."
 
I think you are at least 7kw, maybe more? That's a fairly big genset...be sure to add up all the watts of EVERYTHING including battery charging and maintaining, then ad at least 20% to that number. With out build, I'm doing everything propane (including on-demand propane water heater) and I'm still going to have at least a 10kw generator (propane again) to feed my electrical needs.
Even here in Alaska, we need AC in the summer, and just for the AC alone you need at least 3.5kw running juice, and 4.5 to 6kw startup to get the compressor going.
 
Back in the old days of desert racing, Dad built a neat generator frame which slid right into the trailer hitch on the back of the pickup. Can you do a hitch-mount thing similar on the back of your truck? Or is rear-mount not an option?
As for plumbing, we are doing everything just like we had on our 5th wheel travel trailer. 12v pump, under-chassis waste tank, RV-style waste valves and hookups. Water inlet is simply an RV-style screw connector with backflow valve.
 
If you are not sure of something, the RV way is the easiest to go - repair parts are EVERYWHERE, and you can see how to lay it out by visiting any RV dealership - or simply look in any RV trailer or motor coach.
 
As for backing behind the stainless in your hot area, it's not light, but fiber-reinforced cement board like plumbers use for shower stalls is prefect. Can't burn, takes lots of loading, and is waterproof...

Hi guys, This thread is awesome - long winded but full of great info. It took me 2 days to get through it.
 
I just ordered my trailer - for the second time. First time the dealer took 4 weeks to never get the layout correct on a custom one. I don't know what is going on with those guys. I ended up ordering one that is mostly built down in GA and it will be in  VA by the middle of next week. I am saving about $4000 by driving 650 miles each way but I will have it much earlier this way too. I got a 8.5' x 20' trailer and will turn it into a mobile fried foods (chicken, corn dogs, fries) and ice cream unit. I hope all goes well with my build but reading here has given me the jump on lots or questions I had. Thanks.
