If you’ve been reading this blog, you know I’ve spent a fair amount of time working on improving a flatbed utility trailer I purchased a few months back. When I last left you, I had new wheel hub/brake assemblies on order, all of the old wiring removed, and the trailer still parked in my driveway. Oh how things have changed.
The weather was starting to make a turn. The days were getting wetter and colder. I knew the last thing I wanted to do was work on the trailer in my driveway in the rain, sleet, and eventually snow. Thankfully the shop space I’m renting for the bus also had room for my trailer. However, at this point, I’d removed all of the lighting and both hubs on the rear axle. So naturally, I improvised. I threw the taillights back on, temporarily rigged up the 4-pin connector to the truck, wrapped the spindles in plastic bags to keep the junk off of them, and brought it a few miles away to the shop.
