Purchasing our trailer, the outdoor kitchen with a mini fridge, metal cabinetry, plumbed drain sink and the Surveyor supplied Aussie grill was one of the biggest selling points that sealed the purchase.

Fast forward to two seasons later, we've used the trailer about 50 nights and the BBQ regularly gets used for burgers, hotdogs and chicken. We also often use a Lodge cast iron flat 16x9 griddle. While the BBQ works ok with the griddle, clean up (think bacon grease) is a cumbersome, time consuming process that requires nearly full breakdown of the BBQ.

For Christmas, Santa brought me a 17" Blacstone griddle and the modification bug bit me. So, today I got outside and got the trailer ready for this season.

In short, I removed the BBQ, drilled (4) 7/8" holes for the feet, removed some metal and now both the griddle and 2 burner campstove live on the slide.

Already do! I've been using it quite a bit at home and am impressed how consistently it produces a good meal. It'll be so nice to have it mobile now.

For sure. Any thing from shrimp fried rice. To some awesome breakfast. The Blackstone has cut my charcoal usage in half.

Technically, I haven't done this to the trailer yet...

Went to the Florida RV Supershow today. Came home with a TST-507-RV-6-C Tire Pressure Monitoring System with two additional sending units (total of 8). Also got a pole for a pennant my wife got a few weeks ago.

Went outside, checked it to make sure there was no more than 4" of snow on it. There wasn't, so I went back inside and poured myself a drink.

Yeah. I did the same thing. Zero inches. Oh wait! We had a high today of 72 degrees.

Experimented with (4) of Harbor Freight magnetic led lights when parking in the dark. Perfect for quick lights when parking in the dark. Not permanently mounted though. I wanted to be able to put on and take off for ease!

Fascinating idea. I put these in my storage compartments, and inside cabinets, but never thought of this application. Thanks for the idea.

I called the service center to make sure the keys are locked in it and it has a clear path to be yanked out of there tomorrow (when theyíre closed).

They supposedly took care of my warranty list, repacked bearings (by hand), and checked/adjusted the brakes.

Their communication pretty well sucked. So hopefully they did a good job. Weíll see.

Yep it's scheduled. We are dropping it off. Getting new rims put on so it will be most of the day for the work to be done

My latest modifications include getting rid of the WFCO converter with a Progressive Dynamics unit. The WFCO would not charge the battery at more than 13.6 volts even when the battery was below 12 volts. I ran my furnace for about 4 hours to make sure that the warranty work was done properly, installed a push button switch next to the radio to turn cut the power to the radio, (we didn't like the amount of blue light in the TT at night or the parasitic drain on the battery) I installed a tire monitor system n the TT. And my last mod for today was to change the original lp gas regulator with an automatic switching regulator to avoid running out of lp during the night when running the furnace. I had a busy day.
