Moved my Progressive portable EMS moved inside the TT behind the kitchen drawers. I was never comfortable leaving a $260 piece of equipment hanging from the CG power pedestal just inviting the thieves to come get it.

An added benefit is being able to quickly remove it if I sell the trailer.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Yes. Have to open the bottom drawer to look, but that's easier and faster than walking outside to view it.

Pantry lights Mod!

Well after trying to use the battery operated LED puck lights... I gave up
Having to find the button...turn them on & off... then only to find out 'someone' forgot to turn them off...replace the batteries...

I installed some 12V strips of LED lights that are hardwired and come on when you open the door and off when closed.

We are looking forward to out next trip in the Spring and the pleasure of a well lit up Pantry.... because the panty has such large and deep cabinets these lights will prove to be a great addition.

Pictures show Pantry doors Open : lights-off - - * lights-on *

Details? Did you use a plunger switch? Where did you get the 12v power source? TIA

Yes, I did use a plunger type switch... on the ground terminal side.
I do have some micro switches but I didn't use them because I was concerned how little movement it takes to turn the lights on....just in case the power 'switch' for the lights doesn't get turn off before travelling down the bumpy roads.
12v power source was close by under the fridge at the Furnace wiring.
They take very little power so I had no concern tying into there.

Thanks for asking.

Came back from Myrtle Beach today, traffic was horrible One of the backups was rubber neckers looking at a poor guy changing his camper tire, the China bomb blew. The DW now understands why I am getting new tires for the camper.


On Saturday we take the Surveyor to the dealer for warranty and customer pay repairs, we are getting all of the stuff out of it and get her ready for a couple of months of winter. 2016 has been fun.

Winterized it. No pictures of my tears. We really wanted to camp in it, but reality of it is the temps have been freezing at night and no time for even a weekend trip in the near future.

Get a set of tiny tires and roll it in.

Old set of rims and no tires to put it in. Saw them do that to get a truck out from under a bridge after it became stuck.

Concrete floor, pole type building, thought about having the roof raised but can't afford that right now. I might look into the rims idea. I could put them on just out side the door, concrete slab 27 feet in front of shop.

Thanks for the suggestions guys!!

If damaging the floor with the rims is an issue then get a set of throwaway tires, mount them but don't put any air in, or minimal pressure. Probably lower the trailer 6-8 inches.
