First part of 2nd layer of insulation is starting

            Here we go, the second 1.5" layer of Dow blue board insulation is pictured below, each sheet is approx $25, this will be covered with 3/8" plywood and then 1/8" layer of oak paneling. This is mainly because this wall will hold the electric cabinet & the water heater, both are about 50lbs.

I wanna be 200% sure they will not come loose from the wall - either falling off would be a real disaster. It will be lots of fun drilling a 4.5" hole through approx an almost 4" thick wall.


  1. Ive been following you for a long time. I mean no disrespect here, but what is it your trying to achieve here with all that solar power? Are you planing on staying inside your trailer running the A/C all day?

  2. Not sure where i will end up ? but as far as I know there is not another solar trailer or RV anywhere in the good old USA that can operate on 100% solar for the AC unit, so at the very least I will be the first. Most experts are of the opinion it cannot be done.


Please leave your thoughts, I am always looking for new ideas.
