I like it out there. Have done several jobs in California living on high per diem, travel allowances, etc. Think I'll go back about four times this next year.....

I could go on.. flordia has it's issues.. but my biggest issue so far is dealing with mosquitos, and the permit office.. but I understand why they are like that...they want to keep this nice clean quiet town the way it is.. and I respect that.. just annoying to deal with it, mainly because I'm bored and want to have my stuff organized and be able to work on stuff
Don't hold back Joe, tell us how you really feel. I have been told by friends that live in north Florida that taxes and regulations are less than the populated areas

So I finally got the dda mounted in a 14x7 enclosed duel axle trailer, got the fuel tank professionally flushed and treated with a rust preventive and chemicals to clean the tank and the fuel injection pump by a guy that does it for all the $$$$$$$ boats...

then have a heater bypass plug start leaking, replaced it and the other is also leaking.. but getting to that one requires removing the bottom radiator hose, come to find some black sludge in the bottom of the radiator..

Sooo now I'm going to have the radiator flushed out and pressure tested.. and replace the probably fine water pump that was never painted and is rusty on the outside and just bothers me.. and clean up the area on the front of the engine the coolant got on and paint it so its nice and pretty..

Then install some outlets and plug everything I can into it and load it up for awhile.. I will probably pull the valve cover and retorque the head bolts.. as I see oil seepage between the head and block... maybe a blown head gasket
.

Which may explain the black looking crud in the bottom of the radiator..

Fun! Kinda.. just want it done right.. and want it on as tip top condition as I can get it in to be ready for probably no power outages.. but at least it will be there if needed..

I have all of those sizes on hand, but they sure are noisy to hook up.

Just curious how you plan to run the exhaust? Surely you're not planning on just running the exhaust open inside the trailer. That would be one CO monster danger.
