Yes, they will be riding with me. They have another set of crates in the tow vehicle, safety first. ;)

Yea, my dogs ride in the car with us as well. When I just had one I used two crates, one in the car and one in the trailer. Now, I plan on moving the crates from the car to the trailer when we are setting up to camp. :phew:

This week, I have been preparing to run my wiring. I am installing 120V only as all of the dog events that I attend have shore power. I have all of the boxes installed.

I got one of my light fixtures up. I wanted to put the box on a hinge so that I would still be able to get to the wires after the roof is on. I went in the store looking for some kind of specialty hinge that would make it come out from the wall. The guy at the hardware store said that all I needed was a piano hinge and that would make it come down enough to get to. I can't tell for sure because the roof is not on but it doesn't seem like it tilts down far enough to do any good. I used hinges that came out of my old camper so if it doesn't work, at least it didn't cost me anything.

I bought these really small, 7 watt, fluorescent bulbs from Ikea to go in the fixtures. They have this frosted, rubber like coating on them and they are supposed to not get hot.
