That's no longer fabrication bro, that is Craftmanship. Very Happy Hard to make tubing look like more than just tubing, that looks like art. Impressive keeps going on and on, nice looking work there.

K.A.M.

Your cooker is looking great!
While looking at the pictures I did, however, notice an item of possible concern. Where to tubing comes from under the trailer it looks like there is potential for it to rub while in transit. The reason I mention this is years ago we had a similar set up for a trailer that we hauled our lead pots, etc., for doing cast iron lead joints (telling my age). We had a similar S/S line running through the trailer. It took @ 2 yrs. but it did rub through. One of the guys was soldering a piece of pipe on the tongue and ignited the gas. No big deal, it just burned til he turned off the valve. I guess though the potential for an accident is there. JM2C.

I can honestly say I am finished for now. Very Happy
This build has been long and fun. I want to Thank everyone that followed my progress and posted to the thread. I hope that some parts of the build have helped other members with their projects.
This past week i finished my water hook ups as well as my lighting.
Here are some pics of my fresh water and holding tank. we can hold 18 gall. of fresh water. I chose a 2.65 GPM Ecotemp tankless propane fired water heater. The pump is a Shur-flo 3.3 GPM 110 volt. water pump. Space did not allow for p-traps.


The water lines going into the faucet.


The gate valve drain.


The faucet works. Very Happy


I mounted a 120 volt outdoor breaker box for the trailer. I installed one GFCI receptacle switch combo on the wall next to it.


The switch operates the water pump.


For lights I chose 50 watt mini halogens the two sets really light up the trailer.






The grill at night.


The conduit routed under the trailer.


The conduit coming out of the trailer floor.


The light switch and double receptacle GFCI next to the prep table.


I added a SS top to the frame next to the sink for utensils.


Cooking burgers on the grill tonight. Here are some pics of the propane hookup and torch lighting the grill.






DrunkPlumber, this pic is for you. Very Happy

Kevin:
I know its been fun, but take a little time off, take Debbie out and celebrate its completion. I've noted several times previously, but its really a piece of art. I sure hope it cooks as well as it looks, and I know it will. Tom

Like I said elsewhere, this is a piece of American history !!!

There's so many well thought out designs, large & small, it's hard to remember what all went on...
Guess we'll have to read back thru for the 4th or 5th time ~~~> Very Happy

You're not gonna pull some Ron Popiel stuff are you ??

Kevin, it looks great lit up. Very Happy
Your pride in your work shows up in everything, everything looks like it grew there. Very Happy
The pictures underneath the trailer prove it, all your tubing and conduit bends break cleanly and its very neat, even where it won't be seen. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
Good luck with it, I hope you and Debbie enjoy it.

Well I have no idea what you could add to the build that has it all !!! Maybe a gravy dispenser ??? Love it!!! The other day I started at the beginning and went all the way thru the build. That is some lucky steel. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
