I scored a whole piece of diamond plate @ the habitat for pennies! Just enough to trim out one of the wheel wells.... so I cut it to fit.... here is one of the decks folded up like it will be for travel
and I used the rest of trim out the new bike trailer I built by cannibalizing my old kid styled cart!
It's hot pink and has diamond tread plate on it!
So we took it for a test ride
Went to the woods to go hiking
and got caught in the rain on the way back! It has been 90 + degrees lately. t felt so gooooood!
I started out with blocks of cherry, and using my drill hammer and chisel I removed wood to make room for plumbing, so that the wood can hold the bath tub faucet and be mounted on the wall.
Then I put them together with screws and covered the screw heads with plugs
I finished it with polyurethane. Here is the faucet, a rebuilt antique from the civil war era, in the block, as seen from above and below.
This is a plate taken out from under neath my friend's Chevy Impala, which used to be a cop ar. it was used from ramming and driving over stuff. According to the instruction manual of my washing machine it needs to be installed on a solid piece of meal under neath it... my friend didn't want to put the plate back on his car.. too heavy and dirty, but it is perfect for under neath my washing machine
Although it is filthy. I scarped off the layers of tar and sludge and then wiped off the rest with a gasoline soaked rag
Once it was cleaned I cut it to fit in the compartment where the washing machine lives
and smoothed out the gouges from the cops ramming into things
and.. there is goes, just like a charm into position!
This is the switch, mounted to the hitch. There is a pin that is inserted into the box which is connected to the tow vehicle. If the trailer and the tow vehicle become separated
trailer lights and brake wiring diagram
switch. Pin inserted into box, attached to tow vehicle by cable. If the
trailer and tow vehicle become separated the brakes on the trailer
engage. Legally required. white
wire grounded to the frame, black & blue wire inserted into
corrugated tube and added to the loom. Black leads to emergency brake
engaging battery, the other to the brake signal wire
7 prong connector
been collecting a lot of corrugated tubing lately
and escutcheon plates, like this one that would normally go at the ends of
shower curtain rods. I drill holes in them and use them as covers for
holes in the side of my house where wires have to pass from the outside
to the inside
as seen here in the wheel well. There is one of tyhe these per tire, because each tire has wires
tube passes through wall of wheel well
brake hub wires protected by a vinyl tube, cut from a sink sprayer
brake signal wiring and ground wiring
running light etc wires wrapped around the Mc cable for support
and finally up to the front where everything connects to the wires from the plug and the break away switch

If punishments are not just, the people do not know where to put hand or foot.
THANK YOU STEVE CARSON, A MOST AMAZING MAN AND PLUMBER FOR COMING TO BEING THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION WORK OF THIS HOME-MADE TRAILER PLUMBING SYSTEM. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR THOUGHT AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL, SENSE OF HUMOR, TROUBLE-SHOOTING, PATIENCE AND FAITH.

Today is like my birthday. I have been saving, and today I bought the PEX 1/2I crimp ring clamp tool, the cutters, and 100 feet of tubing so I can finish the plumbing system.
Pictured with the tools are the fittings I will be using, the crimp
and screw tighten rings, compression adapters, filters, shut off valves
filter, Teflon tape, pipe dope and hose bibs.
So, I have been connecting things... the filter to the pump, shut off valvues
These are the feeds that join the copper, leading up above the bathroom floor.
strapped to the bottom of the floor joists
Start out wanting to connect the filter to the tank outlet.
make the connection between a shut off valve

gauge each crimp
boom... tank goes to shut off valve goes to filer go to pump
