How I set up my TT as the "cabin" on my ranch
My TT won't be doing much traveling. I bought it to serve as the permanent cabin on my 115-acre ranch/hunting property in Western Oklahoma. When I bought this remote property it had no electric, sewage or water (except for a nearby spring-fed creek).
First thing I had to do was pay the local electric co-op $4 a foot to put in 11 new power poles to get electricity to the ranch. Yep, expensive. Then I had an electrician install a 30 amp RV plug on the final pole. Next I hired a contractor who put in a 500 gallon septic tank for my dump station. The company that was going to put in my well dug three holes in various spots but found nothing but dust. Not surprising in this dry Southwest environment. So on to Plan B. I had a 1,200 gallon water tank installed.
Finally, I bought a mint-condition 2007 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite and hauled it out to the site. As you can see from this picture, the water tank, which runs on an electric pump, is connected by hose and the black/gray water is plumbed into the septic tank. I keep the gray water dump open all the time and dump the black when needed. The TT is also anchored at four points, very necessary in windy OK.
It's been a year long journey to get this all done...but as you can see from the other picture, the final result was well worth it.
