toy hauler build

Just bought a new 24' enclosed trailer, in the process on insulating, finishing off the front for a toy hauler/camper, going to race hair scrambles this year and the wife and I usually make a few trips a year with the quads so should be more fun now that the tents are gone!!

Ive got a complete car audio sound system a want to put in it, 2 12" woofers 6x9s and head unit, but im trying to figure out the best way to power the system.. the trailer has 110 throughout, but i dont know how to wire it up. I thought about running a regular household sound system, but the amp for the subs still need 12v power. any ideas??

Did the trailer have any kind of radio or sound system to begin with?

gonna sound like a prius driver right now I swear Im not, but what about a solar powered sstem? it would get all the power it needs through 3 or 4 panels on the roof to run the system for days.

You have a coupple of choices. Easiest would be 12v car audio gear and a 110/220 to 12v charger. You could also go with home theater gear that would run off 110 and use in inverter or generator when you don't have shore power available. Personally, for a stereo system I would use audio gear and get an Outback inverter and charge controler with solar panels to charge the batteries and to provide 110 when needed.

sorry havnt been on in while, been way too busy latly!!! No pics yet, i actually just started workin on the trailer this weekend.. i had to use the trailer before i could start working on it, racing has started so its a pain load it and go to a race and un load it completely,

first thing i wanted to do was finish the floor, i wanted to do it before i even put a quad in it, but i ran out of time and after a few uses it got dirty and stains already so i had to sand the whole floor and clean very well so the coating would stick. Used wood and deck roll on slip resistant epoxy, gray colored with sand grit in it, did two complete coats and put on the decorative flakes, looks exactly like that epoxy garage floor kit, only its made for wood, got that done today and bought the carpet for the front "living quarters" today, its in place just needs trimming put on,

so far, walls are insulated and painted, floor is done, carpet should be done tomarrow night, after that its time for the cool stuff, finally..
