With the acquisition of my precious I have been hunting down different trailer service shops. Being basically brand new the trailer doesn’t need work so much as upgrades. You might remember that I got a Trailer Eyes system for Christmas. I finally had it installed shortly before trading in my trailer. Add that to the list of things that I want to eventually pimp my trailer out with and it would be quite the laundry list (read: $$$).
There are some things that I know I am not capable of accomplishing myself. Installing a RV Hook up to eventually power a window ac unit and awning for camping fall into that category. Things that I am just crazy enough to try though include the installation of fans. Since I know literally nothing about wiring things I turned to the trusty internet as my guide.
Luckily there are quite a few facebook members that happen to be atleast half as crazy as I am. There is even a group about Horse Trailer Conversions (aka DIY living quarters). While I don’t want to build living quarters there are a lot of useful tips in this group. One person even posted a how to on installing fans in the horse area of your trailer. Whether or not this is a good idea remains to be determined. In an ideal world I will be able to see the wiring for my lights easily, determine which line is hot and which is the ground and then just splice the wiring. I am most concerned about the drilling of holes into my trailer to mount the fans honestly! Hopefully I will have a good update for you guys in the next week!
Have any of you tried to do any of the above to your trailers? Tips or tricks for the not so handy rider?
