    Is is just 12 volts there? If so, no worries. You can’t get shocked at that voltage. As to the concern about steel vs aluminum, remember cars just ground the negative post of battery to steel frame generally, and don’t run negative wires to each load.

    I found mixing by weight to be faster and easier. Ratio by weight can be found on MAS web site. I used a note card with weights for different volumes needed and weigh it in the cup on kitchen scale. Just pour from the jug, no pumping.

    A cheap set of wire nippers cut them flush. Sometimes I used a torch when wires were long; takes seconds. Heat a nd jerk like pulling a tooth.

    Trailer tire lock This locks the trailer an also serves as a chock. If the tire rim is too small for the pinchers add a short pipe nipple. I also have a lock on the hitch pin.

    That’s probably shore power. I have same, and on the other side similar for solar panel connection.

    This thread is acting strange. It says last update was by Chrisk, but nothing there and just links to log-in. Hmm, anyway, thats why I am refreshing with this post. Cheers!

    If anyone is concerned with mixing the stainless with brass, know that they are close to each other on the galvanic series, and would only corrode if there was substantially more stainless (more noble) than brass, which is not the case here.

    No glass. But to prevent galley flat separation I would add glass tape where the bulkhead meets the galley flat, both inside and in the galley.

    Maybe cutting thin okume strips with a beveled edge, and gluing them over the scar would look better than a wood filler patch.

    There are still a few available camping spots available of today. (FORT Townsend, not Port Townsend is the name of the park for anyone else interested).  I will see if dreamboat is up for it tonight.

    A few years ago I was in the beer garden at this event. When we left I saw the CLC trailer and immediately said yep, I gotta have one, and sealed the deal. The next morning, sober, I sat bolt upright and bed and thought, “oh man , what have I gotten myself into”.
