Trailer Upgrades Continue

While we're all keeping our distance and not playing with cars, I'm continuing to make progress upgrading the trailer. Massive thank you to Chuck for making this all possible.
Starting the primer, ceiling panels not attached yet.

When we last left the trailer, the walls had been insulated and some preliminary wiring run. A few weekends ago we pushed on with priming and painting the interior. The ceiling panels were painted separately before they were installed so we didn't have to paint on the ceiling.
Final paint complete with ceiling panels in place.

With the walls and ceiling brightened up, the skylight was ejected and the AC unit put in place. Wires were connected and we were one step cooler to refrigeration.

Tiny but useful; this door catch is saving a ton of frustration when going in and out.
Yesterday we came back and reinforced some cabinets before securing them to the walls. Next, power was run for a pair of outlets under the cabinets and everything was tied together under the trailer in a fuse box. The AC and interior power are separated into two fuses, all fed by a 30 amp twist lock outlet at the tongue of the trailer. Chuck fabricated a custom mount for the outlet along with helping me set up a cable to run generator power and another to run off of track power outlets.

The major bummer was turning the switch on the brand new AC unit only to find the power knob was broken and I'll have to call in for warranty information to get replacement parts. Oh well, not immediate need, so there's plenty of time to get new parts.
Slick new power hookup ready to go!

At this stage, the trailer is really coming along. Walls are insulated, painted, the ceiling is closed in, AC is 99% ready, power hookups are all ready, two new LED lights are set up, and there's two cabinets and a shelf for storage and work space.
Cabinets, power, and AC unit in place. 

Still to go: epoxy floor kit, a few more little accessories, and final cleanup.
