Hey Kirk

At least you sold your wife. I can't get mine sold to save my life. Maybe Mary needs to talk to her. :lol:
Congrats on your first outing. The shelfs look cool too. :thumbsup:

Like Larry I could not stand the flimsy short tongue on my HF trailer. Here is the fix I came up with.

Its a little longer so it backs up better. Jack is welded and more stable. I can strap stuff to the expanded metal deck.

I did design the fix but I cannot take credit for the welds. I can weld and I do have the equipment but I have a customer who is an artist at the torch and he really wanted to glue it together so he gets the credit for the nice welds.

Doh! Kirk, I apologize. I got confused and mixed you up with Kent somehow, who has recently started posting again. Explains why the second part of my post doesn't make any sense. :x

Your work looks great and despite whoever did the welding your mod looks fabulous! :thumbsup:

Looks good Kirk, between and Larry I've been calling around to see what its going to run me to get mine non HF trailer extended out and get a permanent jack mounted to it. I'm hoping they can cut it out and replace without catching the tear on fire :D. Keep making changes so we can keep copying them!

Cliff :thumbsup:
In God we trust, shoot the rest and he will sort out!

I am soo glad you used the blue masking tape. Such great stuff. I cAn only afford the beige tape and we know how that stuff is with holding things together. I just can't find the blue tape anywhere near here and to have it shipped is just so much.

Re: California Zepher. New fan and shelf ext.

Postby campmaster-k » Tue Aug 14, 2012 8:32 am

Teardrops are never really finished.

We figured out that we needed more air and more room for stuff. So I Took out the vent and installed a fantastic vent which I should have done in the first place.

Image

In went the fan. Very easy

Image

And then went a shelf extension.
