i never ended up removing the tires. it was some bs park rule and with the skirting on you cant tell anyhow. heck i doubt im gonna take the hitch off again to.. had to buy all new nuts and castle nuts because they rusted up so bad.. that and i think propane was leaking at one point and made them all reek of propane... ive checked the lines now with soap/water and no leaks.

Wow, just read the whole thread. Glad you got out ok and settled back in. You've got a couple good months to get everything back in frost-proof order now.
Hoping to have my trailer out of the shop in another week. Then I get to start the fun chore of weatherproofing. I really like your idea of running the water & electric through the floor. I think I may borrow a page from that playbook.

lol tell me about it! need to find the $$$ for the skirting to so i can get it ordered and on the way. that + the heat tapes on the water line and sewer lines = no problems.

if i had even more $$$ to blow i would spray foam the underside of the trailer. at minimum the bathroom and back and try for under the slides just cause they are thinner material to begin with.

I got a rude awakening today when I stopped by to check on the progress of my new floor. The old floor was out, and there were strips of fiberglass insulation between the floor joists. All were too short, way too narrow, and too thin. I'm thinking of removing the tarp material from underneath and gluing styrofoam insulation material under the new floor. I'm sure I could do a better job insulating the floor than Gulf Stream did.

Are you refering to "Great Stuff" or is there something a bit more appropriate for such a large application?

no brand in particular. i think i priced it out to be a grand for the whole trailer to be done by professionals. the do it yourself kit ends up costing you about 100 bucks more..
