Fits like a glove

I had to cut the bottom of the paneling out completely, as the fridge sits on the floor. The original icebox was flanged, and had a 3/4" lip on the lower opening. Width increased by about 1" as well.



I borrowed a saw from my dad (a gift I had given him in the past). Great tool for precise cuts to the paneling. Between the two of us, we weren't quite sure what good this saw was, but now that I've used it it may become a favorite saw.

As usual, my little helper was also busy. []

I used lots of masking tape to protect the exterior surface, then attacked the outside lower area to cut the vent opening. Started with a jig saw, but quickly noticed that a sawzall would be a better option. Not perfect but it worked. My helper was on the inside of the trailer making sure I didn't cut any wires or the conduit tie bar. All went well.



I haven't connected the fridge yet, or done the baffles, but the exterior vents are in place and temporarily screwed in. Looks okay.





Here you can see the vertical plywood wall I added on the rearward side of the fridge. I need to add the insulation, reflectix and venting and clean all this up, but it fits.

The top of the cabinet an the sink are just resting there.



The door just clears the wooden support that the folding sink rests on when traveling. Fridge is a perfect fit fir the trailer.

That's it for today... hopefully this week I can get it wired up and finish that propane tee connection.

I need to complete the sink plumbing before I finalize the fridge installation. I won't be able to access the plumbing very easy later on. My sink has a faucet like this:



I believe it must be 3-way version, as I have a city water connection, and a holding tank. The faucet appears to also have a wire loop on it.

Does anyone have an installation instruction booklet for this unit? None of the supply hoses were connected to the faucet when I got it although they were there, just disconnected.. Just curious what is the best (proper) way to hook it up.

I'm assuming the sink drain goes straight out without a P-trap, otherwise I'd get wet when I flipped it over from the residual water in the trap.

If this is in fact a 3-way faucet, what type of electric water pump am I looking for? I suspect that loop of wire is just hooked up to a switch? cut the wire, and splice in series? Ground side of the circuit?

Thanks for advice in advance.

I'll be very happy to get my hand one some instructions for this faucet. It has three inlets, and that white wire loop. I've looked every where online, and came up empty. I'll probably just guess at the connections until it works.

If anyone has them, please email me at: glastron @ live . ca



SHURflo probably made this faucet (Model 131-?) but they have every manual online except for this older faucet.

After a second look, it appears to have its own built-in version of a P-trap (sort of). I'll just hook the drain up straight to that fitting.

Had a busy week, so I accomplished very little until today. Started today by installing the tee-fitting in the LP line, and ran new lines to the fridge and stove. I ended up putting the tee in the center, knowing that this could make the fridge harder to start. Fridge still lights well, which I have since tested.



I need to purchase a couple of grommets, but otherwise the LP lines are complete. Tested all connections with liquid soap and water. All is well.





While I was at it, I cleaned the stove up. Looks okay.

Next step was to mount a surface outlet, allowing for the 120V fridge connection. I simply cut into the existing line, and wired the outlet in series.







Next step was to make the lower baffle plate. I cut aluminum flashing running straight in towards the fridge, then up, and out to the lower side of the upper vent opening. Turned out well.

I screwed the outer edge to the existing vent opening, both upper and lower.



It sits about 1/4" or so away from the fridge coils, and should work well.

I added reflectix material on both sides, and filled in the gaps with adhesive aluminum foil to seal it all up. The conduit you see is the lifting rod for the roof.







I also cut a sheet of aluminum to cover up the damaged floor covering and clean it up a bit.
