DIY ~ Micro-Lite Cargo-Go Lite Xtreme Trailer [Air Cooler–Heat Exchanger & More], 08/19

Closer to putting on a skin/veneer and enclosing the cooler–probably wood for both

IMG_1824I built a frame for the heat exchanger that has more insulation on the sides and a mounting board for the temperature gauges. The register is temporary–just to have a correct sized opening. I hope to use a thin, decorative wood–maybe ¼-inch. The wood top in the photo is also temporary.

IMG_1823I have insulated the 10-gallon cooler and have to put it back on its base, then shorten the wiring. I will cover the insulated cooler. I am not sure with what yet–maybe wood slats to match the trailer’s front panel.

Note, the portion of the exposed return tubing also has to be insulated.

Stay tuned…
