I made time this week to tear the generator down. The bearings and just about everything except the cylinders, looked practically new. The bottoms of both cylinders were full of oil and very little crosshatch remained. what was weird was the oil rings have a huge gap, like 1/8", and both cylinders had the gaps of all of the rings at the bottom....perfectly lined up!
Here's proof of the teardown:

Been waiting for this one

START IT UP!!!!

HA! that gave me a chuckle

Well you have been busy, all looks good.

I have been thinking bout a filter on my tank. It has a large pickup like yours but I think mine is 40 gallons.

Thanks JR.

Wow, 40 gallons. IIRC the flyers on the raptor say it comes with 20, but after taking it out, I feel that it's about 30.

I feel like someone special now, that I've been DOTted. Before I get all teary eyed, let me post some final cabinet pics.
After making sure the lights and ceiling vent fan still worked, I finished nailing 3700 pieces of trim and paneling on the inside, covering the wiring harness.
Next, the doors lost 3" off of the bottom:


Then this 1/2" round over bit was used to reshape the edge to match the other 3 sides:

The handles were flipped so only one new hole needed to be drilled:



Relocated and straightened the upper hinges (whoever built this trailer didn't use a tape measure), and installed the lower hinges after careful alignment:


..installed and prepped for paint:

Another item checked off the list was upgrading all of the light bulbs to LEDs. There are 26, #921 style bulbs and 4, #1156 style bulbs inside the trailer. I haven't done the outside ones yet.
This is what the 2 styles look like:



The 1156 style on the left is good for 150 lumens, the 921 style on the right is rated at 250.

I converted our RV too, using the pancake style LEDs... one of the best things i did. They run soo much cooler and use far less juice. And every bit as bright.

Cabinets look good too!

I wanted the 250 (or 300 icr) lumen 1156's but they had bad ratings....I guess they run hot and start losing led's.

Really nice work there Kenneth!

It's the little things, the attention to detail like flipping the handles and routing the edges that bring this home as a great conversion.

Well done!

Sure looks good. Got my roof patched, but need to seal the whole thing now.

Link would be good. I got some cheapo's sometime back and although they looked good, some of the LEDs have burned out.

Dangit. I've heard the stories, but thought I had enough driving talent to prevent myself from becoming a statistic.
Maybe I should've held out for a slider..."if you pay attention, you don't need a slider" some of my friends said. :(

Have you become one of those old men that needs his driving privileges reconsidered?

Don't beat yourself up too bad, I've seen that happen a bunch. My brother in law just put one into the cab corner on his fancy new F250 platinum. He has a slider that usually stays in the rear position moving stuff around the yard. He forgot he locked it forward. Of course I am still picking on him about it. I'm just glad I have a long bed.

You know, I honestly didn't think that my truck would turn sharp enough to make contact while going forward....never even considered it...
.and yesterday I had moved the hitch to the most rearward adjustment just to see how it would tow, and was actually going to move it back forward this week because I noticed a measureable (negative) difference.

I wish this trailer had the concaved corners like the newer ones.....hmm, might have to make some modifications.

So, this is like one of those movies where you see the ending first, and then all the blanks are filled in. The busted window was the bad ending...

The latest project started out like this:
I ordered up some new spring equalizers....
 

they weren't packaged very well. These help absorb road shock and remove some of the "chucking" when towing a heavier trailer.
This Dexter kit comes with greasable shackle bolts, heavier shackles, and bronze bushings to replace the plastic ones in the leaf spring eyelets.



...those shackles are 1/2" thick !!

Me thinks the corners of that trailer are going to shrink, or disappear, or at least be visited by a masseuse.....with a sawzall.

Just to have it archived, since I had to know this stuff when ordering, I guess there's basically 2 different standard axle setups on a triple axle rv....33" axle spacing, and 35".
When you order equalizers it makes a difference. The 35" setup is typically found on trailers with more than 6k axles. My trailer has 3- #5200lb axles, and the spacing is 33" so it took the smaller kit.

I ordered that stuff because I was going to have the axles out of the trailer for a bit.......what better time for an upgrade?
I figured (multiple times and then refigured some more) that I needed to raise that trailer 5" to meet my needs. I wanted it to ride fairly level on my mildly lifted truck, and attain the most clearance possible between the bed and rv.....oh, and have plenty of ground clearance.

Not too many pics....but here's the 2x5 heavy walled tubing tacked in place after several hours of prep:


new bushings installed:


One axle in, 2 to go:

While it was apart, I packed the bearings (actually my brother...I didn't want to get my hands dirty), cleaned the brakes, and mounted some new tires. What you can't see is the beam welded in between the 2 sides, for torsional support. We painted it up, extended the brake wiring, and lubed the shackles. There might have been a bunch of welding somewhere in the beginning.

She almost touches the roof of my shop.....I had about 1" to spare on the front a/c.....measuring 13'6" at the highest point:

....which was about 1" too much. I anticipated this, so then the hitch was lowered 1" and moved rearward at the same time. This rearward movement should prevent trailer-to-cab contact (I think we know what happens later) :(

This was the former position, with the mounts forward of the axle centerline:


...moved rearward and down:

This is how she sits at the present, unladen, about 12k lbs and 65psi in the air bags. I still have to throw the genset up front along with 2000 lbs worth of wife necessities, 110 gallons of H2O in the rear, and my Ranger....which is about 1700 lbs, and then I'll reevaluate.

On flat ground, it has 26" of ground clearance at the rear end:

I'd talk!!

I keep waiting for Tex to post a pic of his Castle on wheels. It makes ours look like housing in south Compton. lol

Next up, since I had extra time this weekend, was to switch over to 6v batteries. Of course nothing is as easy as it first appears.
This compartment had enough room for 3 batteries, but the way they welded in the brackets only allowed for one big 12v.
I cut all that wimpy junk out, welded in some thicker metal, and just like that, more powa:

Why would you need bigger? Hmm, mine sits at 13/6 at the AC.

What I have never understood, why don't they put nice rear bumpers on these things? Just a little tap would really screw up any TH.

Why you ask? The places I go, and have been for30 years. Camps that I call home when hunting in the hills of Az. Some are 25 miles from pavement, and i wouldn't have been able to get a trailer this size into......and it wasn't even close to being level when hooked to my truck. The truck will never be lower than it is now, nor any future trucks for that matter.

Your's is 13/6 stock? holy moly. Mine, stock, was 12 at the roof line plus 14" for the a/c, sitting level. and the axles were flipped from the factory.

Mine is stock, no sliders or lift and I need a 4 inch drop to run level. That should change though as I just ordered new 35 tires and have pieced together the rest of the lift for it. Loosing the rear blocks for a flip.

I don't think you trailer is too big, just can't see why someone would need more, but they are out there. I like comfy but really just sleep, shower, #2 and get out the rain with it. Always dry camping.

You should see some of the crazy stuff out here with the weekend crowds. They go so overboard out here it is scary sometimes. Monster trucks with lifted 5th's going 75+ and not knowing how to drive.

DOT Shot of the wife's 5er....I just tow it.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Nice rig she's got there RN. You don't see very many with a door on the left side. I'm sure there's another on the other side too.

Just tow it?

I hope you stay in there too

I feel so inadequate with my camper.

Well, I guess I actually feel just fine, and that is one awesome trailer you have there. You guys with these big ones, towing north of what 17K? That must really be something going up hills. I only tow mine weighing a bit under 8K loaded so it's nothing like what you guys are pulling.
