FARENWALD ENTERPRISES, INC. MILLWOOD ROAD LANCASTER PA 17602
1967?- late 1970s
Metric1 – Saw this trailer come up on craigslist and ran to the bank, then met the owner. Bought it on the spot.
Metric 2 – Got it home and washed it thoroughly…
Metric3 – It cleaned up really well.
Metric4 – Original Inside was super clean, but a little dark and depressing.
Metric5 – Added some simple hand sewn curtains and cheap patio lounge furniture cushions for color. They happened to fit perfectly.
Metric6 – With table folded down to bed, and upper cabinet opened for ‘Bunk’. My 7 year old loved sleeping up there.
Metric7 – Kitchen was spotless, so not much to do there.
Metric8 – Previous owner had water tank and pump redone, so one less thing to deal with!
Metric9 – Refer didn’t work, but fairly clean and serviciable as an Ice Box.
Metric10 – “Bathroom’ was no bigger than the potapotti, but with the door opened it worked fine.
Metric11 – Pulled all the wiring that wasn’t inside the walls.
Metric12 – Rewired everything – adding batteries, a disconnect, fuse panel, small inverter, propane detector and a solar charge controller. 🙂
Metric13 – The space under the seat was so short I could only add small batteries, and wanted everything enclosed to use as storage for other stuff.
Metric14 – I may have overdone this a little. :-). But man was it sweet….
Metric15 – The water system was fairly new and functional, but the tank was not secure.
Metric 16 – I pulled the tank, flushed it well, strapped it down with plumbers tape, and redid the pump wiring.
Metric17 – Also redid the 4way plug and added quick disconnect wiring from the charge controller for the new solar panels.
Metric18 – Mounted the panels to the awning with rubber coated conduit clamps. Panels and wiring were easily removable for towing, and stored under the bunk bed cushions.
Metric19 – replaced Propane tank, regulator and fittings.
Metric20 – Probably my favorite trailer project to date!
