Our wattage requirements are in the 7K + range (a/c, fridge, hw heater, 220v panini press).. Last nights service saw many other trucks/trailers with gens on long cord, and some on truck mounts like ours. The noise level with all those gens going made ours "blend" in and no complaints from anyone, including the operators inside. So still don't know if it's going to stay or go mobile?? I walked the truck row and found the level of noise about what you would expect from all the gens together. The gen did very well for the load it carried, a little selfish on gas, but we carry extra like everyone else. All of you seasoned operators have this down, we have a lot to learn.....

How did you anchor your appliances in your truck? Ive seen several ideas on this and just wondering how you did yours. Did you have a good turn out for your first gig? Satisfied or disappointed with the amount of business you did. Just wondering, these are the questions that run through my mind as dedicate every extra second I have to working on my truck in this stifling heat.

We made simple "L" brackets with a welded gusset out of 2" wide 1/8" steel strap. Used a muffler U clamp to attached the rear legs of each table or main sink to the wall. He coated the brackets with rubberized paint. Worked extremely well. The fridge is anchored to the floor with a coated cable, to ss eye bolts using turn buckle. Sorry no pics, the truck is no longer at the shop.
First gig was an eye opener, we got hammered hard, couldn't keep up, our menu was not working... ended up short on the gig, but the operators learned a lot from it. They have re-grouped to fix the problems and menu. Other truck/trailer operators gave sound advise and tips for the next outing. I'm not the operating the kitchen, just mechanic and helping were I can.

We didn't do anything, the a/c brings in fresh outside air, and hood really doesn't suck away the cool all that much. Since I'm not the operator, they said the a/c kept up quite well. It's a 150000 btu unit, and largest we could get for the $$ we spent. (it was on sale also) I guess some builders install that feature, but we have very limited room in that small kitchen.
