Default Got my refer

Picked up & mounted a 26' x 8.5' x 8' Morgan refer unit with a Thermo King refer that is diesel & electric. The entire unit weighs in at a whopping 7300 pounds ! It does cooling & heat. I'm wondering is their a way to make the electric motor act as a generator to provide power for electrical components in Toterhome. I was planning on a 24' unit to have a 10' drop down garage section behind the rear wheels. The 26' actually leaves about 12.5' hanging out back, so i'm going to have to shorten the box or lengthen the frame. Wheelbase is 208". Decisions decisions. Trying to keep cost down but keep it professional grade.

I have 26' living quarters. My wheelbase is 295". Guessing you'd want to look at a wheelbase close to that for yours.

Well I shortened my box by 5'. It's now 21'. I fabbed the drop down rear subframe, dropped the floor, Modded the door frame, mounted the ramp door, but have a long way to go !
