    I understand… however, won’t it complicate things by having to use a Converter to go from 30 to 15 amp receptacle on the inside?  I guess you could use a 30-to-15 amp adapter plug….  I know you can use a 15-to-30 amp adapter at the power pole… I do that all the time.

    I only used a 20 amp connector for a Battleborn 12v Lithium Battery. Isn’t a 30 amp connector a little overkill?

    answer to your question:  yes, there!

    Hi:  I like the stool (provided in the UCC kit) to be useable….. I’m 5’4″.  If not, look into buying a collapsible 2-step stool….

    I love the UCC!  I also put a CLAM tent in the tent hole….. the CLAM tent is the cocktail hour, dressing room, and portable potty area…

    Have fun with it….

    The BEST storage for food, kitchen utensils are the awesome drawers of the Under Carriage Carrier Box which is an upgrade to the Teardrop…… I love it!  I store clothes and other items in the side drop-down doors…… I’m glad I went with all the upgrades (Tongue Storage Box, Galley Insert, and UCC)….. it extends my camping trips and makes life camping fun.

    One last comment….. You can order the manual PDF or hard copy separately from the kit.  When I was about to commit in buying the kit…… I did this……. gave me some insight on what the project involved.  It’s not difficult, just, a lot of expoxing, sanding, sanding, sanding….. did I say sanding?

    Good Luck — YOU GOT THIS!!

    Ive finished both the Teardrop and the Under Carriage Cargo (UCC) box.  The Manual is one of the best, detailed, I’ve seen from CLC — combined with reading the Lessons Learned on this forum.  some thoughts:

    – Make sure you spend time getting the panels stitched into the mold with no gaps on the seams, corners come together, etc.  This will make sure there is no twist in your shell.

    – Watch ALL the videos on CLC website (epoxy techniques, stitching, glueing, varnishing, etc.)…. they are invaluable.

    Buy extra epoxy (resin and hardener), fiberglass in case you want to enforce the sides (around the doors) or galley lid better…

    As mentioned, take your time……. don’t hurry the project.  sometimes I read a single step in the manual 4 times before i “got it”…  read ahead too.  You might want to do a couple of steps later or earlier to make it easier and stronger…. I’ve learned this by reading ideas here on the forum.

    GOOD LUCK — YOU CAN DO IT!!  Take your time…..

    I attempted to send you guys the schematic via email but it doesn’t recognize those email addresses.

    Here’s the part # for the T Handles: 92-21-532, T- & L-Handle Style Cam Latches, Southco.

    Just google to find a distributor.  I can’t find the company I ordered through,,,,, Amazon has it listed but you get the “don’t know when this item is back in stock” message.

     

    Good Luck!

    Galley:  I followed the above post idea… I have two (not one) locking handles on the galley lid.

    Question:  Has anyone figured out a hinge that is a hidden type for the side doors of the UCC?

    From what I remember, I did not glass the galley flat — reason is it would be hard to install because it wouldn’t bend.  However, I did use fiberglass tape on the filet seams,,, i also used tape under the inside shelf which is mentioned in the manual.

    I would buy 5 quarts….. that’s based on 6 coats applied on the entire Teardrop.  Extra could be used as touchup.
