Recommended Posts

Hey i'm new on here but I used this site a lot for help while I was building it. I thought I would just post some pictures of the build because I liked seeing the pics of others builds.

The house is 6.5x8 with a 3ft V. I used 2x3x3/16 steel tubing and 1 7/8 inch round stock for where the axle pivots.

The floor of the house is 3/4" treated plywood and I used self tapping screws for treated wood. I insulated the floor with 1" pink insulation then spray foamed around the outsides of it.

Next I did the wheels. The pictures here are what is started out with but they ended up changing 3 times before I got it right.

The arm on the axle is 2x3x3/16 with a large bushing stock welded on the end. The bushing is 2" ID.

I built the roof and walls inside our garage and got everything fitted up onto the frame, then took sections of it apart to put it together outside because our garage is to low.

All of the walls are ripped 2x4's with full 2x4's in the corners and on the back so it would be strong enough to hold the double doors.

The ceiling is 2x6's cut to a slight slope.

I wired the taillights up the wall and threw the ceiling down to behind the stove. my only 110 outlets are in the front because it is so small. There are 2 12v lights and 2 6ft led strips on the ceiling. I wrapped the inside of the house with plastic before i put up the paneling.

After last winter i realized that there was way to much tongue weight and the axles weren't how i wanted them so i decided to redo them when i finished the inside.

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
