Joey, the square electrical thing in these two photos looks like the 12 volt converter you were asking about in another thread. If it is, then the answer to your question is yes, you have one, and it would be pretty easy to put a battery and more lights in it.

Well we got some more work on this today, took friday off, as we've been busting rear on it then normally and wanted a date day...

Friday night did get a call from the previous owner and he found the screens for the enclosed canopy that came with it..



so I put it on today to see how it was.. pretty good condition!





After getting it all together, covered the new supports I made for the lift, covered up the rest of the bench, screwed down the table base in the right position...

One thing we did was tear out the top of the existing cabinet/bench cuz, as you can see, the bottom was all molding and nasty... Hopefully our camper wont smell so much now..

After we cut out that peice, we sprayed the peices with bleach to try to kill any that was on the framing, but it looked good...

Here's the rest of the interior after we started packing up...

Right after the pictures were taken, before it was all packed up, we traced the shapes and sizes of the benches onto foam, which my mother who is an avid sewer, will be making covers for.

Tomorrow, me and the girl will be picking up this memory foam mattress topper for the pull out mattresses, and some fabric to cover it... May also pick up a blow up matress for the middle bed, which we are going to bring a bigger peice of wood that will go in between the benches, so we can fit a full size blow up mattress in the middle in the case we have 6 or so people.....

Yes, you'll need a 12 volt test light and some wire. There should be a lug or connector that is identified as "battery+" Run an 8-10 gauge wire from that to the positive terminal of the battery with a self-resetting circuit breaker before it connects to the + terminal of the battery. Run a ground wire either back to the converter from the battery, or to a point on the trailer's frame. I can post more particulars over on the thread talking about it, so we don't drag this thread off-topic.

sure thing.. I'd like to see where it notes which wire before I tear mine apart again...
Would I be able to run it to my truck battery, in the case I ever need light in an emergency? I doubt I'll ever run it off it, but rather be safe then sorry, you know?

Mom's almost done with the bench covers, she just needs to close up one of the ends on one of them.

Teaser:


Last night me and April picked up some material for the top of the beds, and my mom's got some thicker material for the bottom.. Getting a Memory foam king size mattress topper so we can cut that in half and put them on the beds before my Mom makes the cover for that...

Indeed you can. Connect the battery positive wire to the black wire in the 7 pin umbilical connector. That will go to your tow vehicle battery. Your Palomino probably only has the 4 wire flat connector, so you would have to change that. It is easy (says he, having done hundreds...).

Looking real good. When do you plan to take it out for a maiden run.
