Re: Wildcat Lodge

There is no BEER in that photo! There is only carbonated water sold under the name of "light" beer.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Much of the morning was spent troubleshooting. We filled the fresh water tank and hooked up city water. We had several leaks where the light duty hose clamps from Lowes failed. A quick trip to Napa and some heavy duty clamps solved the problem.

And we finished securing the hot water tank and the fresh tank.

The 5% limo tint orderded from ebay (windowtintingfactory.com is their retail web site) came in and I got most of the passenger side done. This stuff is tedious and 20 year old school bus windows are dirty.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

After 4pm we hooked the team to the wagon and just played. We fabricated this wagon in 2003 starting only with 2 K car axles. The wood is white oak, yellow poplar and sasafras. The team consists of half sisters (Purcheron mother and standard bred father). They came from the Amish at about 13 years old and are now almost 22 or 23 years old. We will put a receiver hitch to the bumber for towing the wagon. We have it wired for trailer lights and it's able to be hooked to a 2" ball.



Tomottow we will start on the area above the driver's seat for the TV and other electronics.

Re: water. What are the details on that water heater...and is it the camera angle, or did you mount it on its side?

That's right - They also have an ebay store with about 10% discount, but I can't find it now. It is the one from Florida.

The hot water heater is mounted right side up and it has side in and out connections. It can also be mounted on its side to have the connections on the top. It is an 8gal electric only waterheater.

We worked on the upper cabinet yesterday and here are some progress pics.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Here are a couple more upper cabinet pics. The stereo is going into the left cabinet and the TV will mount to the solid space between the openings.
