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.

Well the truck has been in service more or less since July. This past weekend I get "the call" nobody wants..."hey it's running rough and lacks power" I went out to were she was doing her weekend service and looked things over under the hood & cover. Yup its dropped cylinder, should get you home though. I'll pick it up and figure it out on Sunday...I barely (and mean barely!!) got the thing to shop, and had to stop twice to let overheating engine cool down. By this time its pinging so loudly my buddy following me can hear it. It's billowing white smoke also. The engines cratered good now. I ordered a reman long block, and the swapping shred begins!!..... (I found out later the trip home from service was pinging all the way, and smoked some) This again is why ppl build trailers.

OUCH!
 
If I were close I could give you a great running 350 out of a truck that is going to get retired.
 
Good luck.
Hope it goes well.

Hey thanks for the kind gesture, but the warranty on the reman made it worth $$. Plus they'll pay me to R&R the thing if it goes down again. So = win! Hey trying to stay on the + side of an otherwise bummer situation....Curt

At least you should be fairly confident that it will be a nice fresh engine rebuild.
 
Might as well service the tranny and diff while you are in there.

I did the trans re-seal and service, when I originally swapped the diesel for the 350. I have a left rear airbag that's not holding air, now and some sink valves that drip (piddle)... Always things needing attention after I finish the swap grind
