Well I hot wired the slide out of the trailer, it moves. No roof to support it but it moves

Lots of room to take the fridge out and I’ll take some photos of the crack head bomb next time I go out.

Funny, if they were looking for copper the easy money they left behind. Fridge, Shore line, slide out motors, front jack etc.
I see the skylight vents up there but also what looks like an antennae mast up front? Is there an A/C at the rear of roof?

The vent covers are all spider cracked, the ac was gone. I believe that is a tv antenna.

I don’t need any of the windows, I opted for tinted windows

I saved the fridge, water pump, a few windows with screen and the man door for the neighbor

Paid for the fridge. The rest is cheddar

I like your style Big Dave. Can't let things like that nickle- dime ya and eat up your time. And now you have a flatbed, with a porta-potty. Perfect for just bout any job site. Score! And a reefer, etc. I think you did pretty good. Offers on the trailer should start rolling in any time now. Good use of this weird time.
You gotta love night demo. Get'r done.

BigDave, Howdy;

Take apart was always my favorite, .. it was the puttin' it all back together

then a bit of :roll: but in the end usually :)

At least ya left the sitter for the ponderin'.

Further examination from my welding engineer buddy, he wants a hole new tongue, so what he wants I guess

So the plan is split the trailer 33% between three folks. The fab guy, me and my boss. Honestly I couldn’t give a shirt less who borrows it but... I figure the goose neck saves me from retards who don’t know what they are doing. So the flat bed will stay here. I will put on some lights, some new 2x6 deck and a tongue I guess. Maybe ramps to drive a sxs up and down.

Need to get advice on how to install this fridge in my trailer.

What on earth do I need to make it run?

Propane and power I assume?

Directions?

Get a make and model # and maybe a pic. or two of the rear, inside, etc. then we can tell what type it is. If it is a compressor type w/Freon it is probably 12v/120v, if it is ammonia type (absorbsion) could be 12v/LP or 12v/120v/LP. These basically work by heating ammonia in a tank with a flame or heating element. the vapors rise up to the evapoater and collect the heat in the freezer. the vapors then condense into a liquid and return to the tank. Compressor type has a motor that compresses Freon and releases it into the evaporator where it expands rapidly and collects the heat in the freezer, then through the condenser coil where the heat is removed. Make, model # and a couple pics.

BigDave, Howdy;

Contact the manufacturer, most have the manuals online.
Getting the spacing for insulating and venting will be in those.

BigDave, Howdy;

Basically the same model that I have in my RV (home).
The manual is online for these.
