I ran a separate circuit from my battery to the rear of my truck. Used #6 cable and 50 amp fuse. Used Anderson connectors rated for 60 amp. Then on to my trailer batteries. Now I have 2 connections to make when hitching up. My regular 7 way ( which I still have the regular 12V in it) and the dedicated charging circuit.
Best advice would be to upgrade batteries to a pair of 6V golf cart type. Upgrade the converter to a multi stage type (check Bestconverter.com). Upgrade lights to LED. Lastly a 1000W generator to recharge."
Blow water lines out with an air compressor. First remove the drain plug on the water heater. Replace the plug.
Be very thorough in blowing all the lines out. Don't forget the toilet. If you have an outside shower, it is best to disconnect and block them off for winter. Pour 2 cups of RV antifreeze down each drain.
Replaced bath fan with a Fantastic Fan w/accompanying cover.
Upgraded old converter w/ PD 9245 also added parralel to original #6 wiring to batteries.
Added fans inside and back of refrigerator.
Switched to a pair of of 6V golf cart batteries.
Added separate charge line from truck to trailer.
Aluminum 40# propane tanks.
External and internal refer fans.
Replaced most light units with LED's.
Replaced old water pump with a pump/accumulator.
Added additional 12V accessory outlets.
12V bed warmers.
Hunter T'stat upgrade.
Pro Pride 3P hitch.
I note in the pics that the lenses are missing on the rear marker lights. Would be smart to replace them and reseal to prevent water intrusion. Otherwise looks like you are off to a great summer of camping.
I have bought 8 tents from the Eureka outlet, plus other camping gear. I can't say enough about the quality and service I've gotten from them. Personally I would recommend the Equinox. Plenty of room for 2 and their gear.
PM me if you want some additional info.
No need to remove the weight distributation bars. Place leveling boards where necessary to level trailer from side to side. Back up on them. The X-chocks on both sides should be all that is necessary. Then you un-hitch.
