Default fenimcahine's 46' luxury toy hauler trailer (worth to take a look!)

i start build the deck/frames/axles in feb right after i built the 5th wheel hitch on my crewcab ford. i finally designed the body and will going build two functionally slider (hopefully it work...) so far this is what i ve done today. look awesome huh?? i will try my best to make it look scale with all those small details...

i built the axles with leaf spring. work very well, its does not give soft spring feel. its give very firm spring so its not roll over easy or under a lot pressure. made the nose hitch and mounted to the truck and went for test drive. its turn out GREAT! its can turn very well... but i m a lit worrying if i add up all interior stuff and finishing on the trailer will add up a lot weigh and truck will may break the driveshaft or the 5th wheel hitch or something while driving..

Wow, that's a trailer! Looks like you've got a slide-out section, too.

Hey

Looks like you didnt plan to use limit switch, You need ones !

I found this pic on this forum, don't remember who drawn it but it is exactly what you need :
a bipolar, three stable position switch (6 pins)
2 normally open, 1 stable position switches



Using this wiring, the mechanics won't be stressed because movements will stop automatically at both ends

Hope it helps
Alex

finally got my hands on this trailer. just built the slider box, pulled out part out of dvd player to make it slide smooth, add servo, testing, slide in/out smooth! but last thing i will hook up the limit switch underneath the slider box to stop from stressing the motor. but taqke a look at the vids.
