So, got the sewer problem fixed. just filled, dumped, filled, dumped untill it went and then cleaned it out.

now with the first snowfall in the trailer some interesting things have came up...

first since it is not skirted it was cold, and of course the water line to the trailer froze up. no biggie, got it thawed out etc and got water to work. Well last night (oct 27 2010) it got down to -18C windchill. So of course the water line froze again. Well we put a heat tape on it, still froze, insulated it and got it going. used boiler line fiberglass insulated pipe sections.

now the problem i have is the way the trailer is plumbed... water comes in left side, goes under trailer, comes up right side under the tub, runs under the sink, meets up with the line from the 12v water pump, goes through the water filter, then feeds the kitchen, bathroom stuff and goes back under to the hot water heater side. now i think it froze underneath because the hot water does not work. I used a lazer thermometer and everything reads above 10c, well above freezing. so I guess i gotta get on that skirting and get some insulation down there. wouldnt doubt its apart or something..

well it hit -14c last night with windchill. no water this morning... skirting is supposed to be going on either today or tomorrow. gotta get some insulation for around the bottom of the water line. It is insulated but we stopped at the water line in the pit which is now dry and probably where im frozen.

Are you putting blue insulation foam over the framing ? And then will cover the whole thing with siding or whatever ? It is going to look nice !

yup. going to do metal siding because its winter now lol.

had a scare today to. one of the helpers put a sheet of panel board (windbreakers lol) up against the trailer and covered the furnace exhaust!! lucky it was blocking the intake and the furnace shut down! could have been disastrous!!

btw it was -16c today with a -33c windchill! (3f with a -25f windchill)
