A few more pics & updates on the trailer. New flooring is in throughout the trailer, and the super-sized bathroom is coming together. Should have the trailer back this week. Here's a few more pics (in various stages). The short cabinet will serve as a riser for the Splendide washer/dryer, and the converter was moved into this cabinet.

Thanks guys... Nope Stuff, I couldn't afford to have them do it so it's something I'll most definitely take care of myself as soon as possible (will probably be a "next year" wish-list project).

It may be easier to insulate before the floor goes down. That way you don't have to mess with the underlayment.

BTW : I have a FR Fema camper. I have used it for a deer season and a turkey season.
I added a water tank and pump and dump to a blue tank. When I am ready to go leave on Sunday evening I load the tank and generator and head out.
With 35+ nights and saving 15-20 80 mile trips I think I will save enough money to help offset the purchase price (2100).

I did find a soft spot in the bath room. It looks like it is grey water (soapy and no smell ). I have not found where it came from yet. It may have been an overflow in the bathtub.
It pooled in the underpayment. Last weekend I removed the sheeting and pulled out the wet insulation. This weekend I am going to run the water an see I can find a leak in the gray line coming from the sink.


I am planning on adding black and gray tanks and a RV toilet. First I am going to replace the whole floor in the bathroom. I could get by with just a 3X3 area but I think it would be easier to re-plumb and insulate with the floor out.

I have a question, the washer/dryer hookups.. did you just drill a hole through the floor for the drain? how about venting?

Sorry Stuff, been away from the forum for a bit, been SO busy with getting the trailer back and putting stuff in it. To answer your questions, the drain plumbing runs under the riser the w/d is sitting on, so we just Tee'd into it with a 1 1/2" drain pipe coming up about 15". The dryer vent is installed directly in line with the outlet on the dryer, so it's a really direct & short vent.

Here's some new pics of the kitchen & W/D setup. in the second pic, the button on the side wall is for the garbage disposal. Also on that wall is the new digital t-stat. I ended up returning the 220v tankless water heater and getting a 10 gal. 110v unit instead. There seems to be plenty of hot water, but the water heater and w/d are on the same circuit and they don't like to share. I think my 50 amp conversion will be forthcoming in the next few weeks. As you can see from the pics, I still have a bit of trim work & caulking to finish up in the kitchen.
