Part of the electrical plan is to have a baseboard heater set up with a honeywell garage thermostat:

Has anyone integrated a feature like this in their trailer? I could use some ideas or a good off the shelf thermostat for this particular need.
I am planning on using a basebord heater wired to a low temp/garage thermostat like this one from Honeywell:

I bought a in line plug thing that turns on around 35 or 40.. I forget. Its perfect for a space heater to prevent freezing.

Finally did something to store my tracks. Just piece of 3/4 scrap ply rabbited out. Then a piece of 1/4" with a rotating block to clamp it up there. A stop screw separates the three different tracks.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Im getting ready to build new 18 ft x 8 wide work trailer shop and probably put my 16 ft up for sale with benches and cabinets, lighting and power strips in place . After working out of this set up I definetly have learned what works for me and wider will be nice and rack on top for ladders on new one.

Booked solid and still looking at work. Started working with a local lumber yard that is also a gc. I've gotten two bathrooms and a door job from them, plus a couple small jobs they weren't interested in. Also looking at a whole house reno with them. That's all come within the last month, in addition to the regular calls and projects I'm booking.
