Got a few minutes of time off and a break in the weather to get some truck mechanical work done....been putting off the box part as i need to figure a way to get the thing on the back of the truck as i got a quote from a crane service and it just about made me sick.

Well a small move forward today as i managed to get the second driveshaft hanger drilled/mounted....not the progress i had hoped for as the weather (yes that is snow on the ground and we are around -10c) and work are slowing me down.

On the upside, the 5th wheel is finally gone and i think i found someone with a crane to put the box on!

Well finally got a break in the weather and i'm home at the same time....lol.

Air lines going getting put in, new leveling valve, etc.....

Old rear driveshaft off and moved to original position so i can tackle the mid shaft next...

Then ill run the new wirring harness as i hate tracking bad wires.....lol.

Once thats done i can get the box on as anything after like brake chambers, bags etc can be done later with no real struggle.

Well driveshaft is gonna work fine i just have send it out to be welded (i dont have enough hydro power to run enough welding heat).

New brake combo valve is in, brake tubing is all run and now just replacing brake chambers which is kicking the cr@p out of me....dont know who put them on last but people need to remember that they dont need to crank the mounting bolts on at 1000flbs.

Wont be long now before i can turn my attention to the box....cant wait....nor can the wife as shes tired of looking at it in the driveway....lol.

Well today was the day to start doing something with the habitat.....wife is itching to get making cabinets etc. So subfloor went in....3/8 OSB on top of the aluminum reefer floor, then 1.5" of high density foam, then 5/8 tung and groove plywood......gives us about 5" of insulation on the floor.

Next will be the ceiling and then something to cover the walls.
