That looks great! I am having my 500 gallon propane tank built right now. Not as fancy with all the fixins like yours, but hopefully will cook some good ol meat. Great job.

I had a chance this weekend to get the propane piped front to back and installed the tankless water heater.

Looking good. I guess the next thing is work lights and the sound system.

I can honestly say I am finished for now. :D
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.
Image

The water lines going into the faucet.
Image

The gate valve drain.
Image

The faucet works. :D
Image

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

The switch operates the water pump.
Image

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

Image

Image

The grill at night.
Image

The conduit routed under the trailer.
Image

The conduit coming out of the trailer floor.
Image

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

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

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

Thank You jtilk, :D It wasn't all that bad just a little over two years but I was not really rushing it. My son-in-laws took six months to the day but they pushed me. :lol: We may cook in Freeport at the fishing fiesta this year if money lets us, we have visited Friends down there for the last two years it is a fun comp. :D

Some buddy's of mine have done the Fiesta and love it, I on the other hand havent made it to that one yet just because of time. Last year we were up in the hill country floating the Guadalupe, if you make it this year I'll have to see if I can drop in even if I'm not competing.
