Have you seen this stuff? Airkrete
Supposedly this stuff has great insulating properties, is pest and mold proof (not just pest & mold resistant but pest & mold proof). Think I will check into this stuff, but I don't think it's available in DIY form, you have to pay an installer.

Yep, it's in the frozen north as well, I saw a brief post when I did a google search that someone in Canada had it done and the price was competitive.
I would love to have the extra room with a slide, but glad I don't have it, as it would no doubt have been another hole to pour $$ into getting fixed.

Hey Stuff, I noticed you replaced your thermostat in the trailer. Do you need a specific type for a travel trailer or will a standard residential unit work?

Was trying to see if i could wired in my 240v dyer but it seems i will need to run another cable from the box to the trailer. No big deal i guess. going to run a 20a 110v line aswell for the washer so i dont trip any breakers. As for plumbing it seems that hooking up the water lines will be little to no problem. the drain could be interesting. Going to make a P trap inside so it wont freeze obviously and the go through the floor and out to the sewer. undecided if make its own line or route into the grey water line.

well finally they are installed!! took awhile and many after work breaks.

there was two existing hookups by the hot water heater for the factory installations.



went up and over the drawers and later installed the ball valves above the water heater


then came out the wall into the closet/laundry area.

took the "oh god i hope i know what i am doing" breath and made the holes


ran the wires up for 120 and 240v and put the drain pipes in (not glued yet)


all wired up and plumbed in


had to take the bathroom door and framing for it off to get the washer and dryer in
