Actually did this last weekend. Installed an under the cabinet outlet and toaster oven. Worked out great.

Installed a battery disconnect. Looks great and could not be happier. No more opening the battery box to disconnect.

Washed the trailer, getting ready for next weekend out at Calico Ghost Town. 4 blissful days of nothing to do.

Moved mine in out of the weather. Had to have welders come in and cut the opening of my garage door another 13 inches taller and ordered a new garage door. Yes I know its damaged. That was their fault and the panels have already been replaced. Once it was all installed the Columbus fit by 6" in length and 4" in height. Seems like a lot but when your 42 1/2' long and 13 1/2' tall that is not a lot.

05CrewDually: Installed a volt meter above my tank gauges. I wired it in on the circuit board so that when you hit the Batt button it also reads out on the gauge.


Where did you get the voltmeter and how did you wire it?

Thanks,

Donald

Finally got around to doing these improvements so I would have somewhere to store my WDH and Bars while camping.This way I can take them off the truck, and still lock them up. Sway bars go in the forward outside storage.

I'd have to pull the panel off to see but I soldered the leads directly to the panel circuit board. The meter was from a junk jump box that I had laying around.
You can find them cheap on Amazon.

Thank you for the links.

You must have soldered the positive to the board after the test switch and the Ground to ground.

If you remember differently, let me know.

Could have welded a pc of tubing under the tongue and saved having to carry it to the back. Would have save the price of the receiver also. Just another idea.

Absolutely correct. You can test it with a meter or test light. You can tell what terminals are for the switch. One is hot all the time and one only when you hit the test switch. I didn't want a constant display so I went with the second.
