I like that you've got it set up on a plug, so you can remove the whole works and use that side for beverage storage. Good job man Smiley

Nice...looking good and clean man. What kind of plug is that? Im thinking of adding a separate powered subwoofer to my 150qt build, but I want it on some kind of quick disconnect plug. I thought about a trailer harness, but that would have to just be dangling out the back, I like how yours is mounted.

BVYKA, if weight isn't an option you may want to use (2) two 6V batteries in that build and/or your next build.  

I used two in my 2nd build, and although it's pretty heavy, the setup lasts forever. It offers 225AH and when I floated down Laughlin at River Regatta in 2013 it lasted all weekend on one charge. 

I used generic version of this:

I wish! I went for 3 years straight and last year was the first year I missed.  I moved to Boston from SoCal so it's not worth the flight plus expenses.  Perhaps next year I'll try to go again....man I miss it so much!! I miss staying at the edgewater (cheap) and blaring the cooler at the pool.

so after about 2 years of tugging pushing pulling lifting the handle on Guadalupe has began to ripe thru the plastic. so to avoid having to remove all her parts and put them in a 110 glide i added another accessory to her. a nice S/S handle made and at the same time installed by some partners of mine that do sheet metal. it came out pretty badazz, better than what i had in mind. this will outlast the cooler for sure. all S/S with a plate on the inside of the cooler the size of the handle. if this thing rips out the whole cooler will be done... then i can move to my 110 glide!!! till then im a happy camper not building anything!!! HAHAHA!!!

RIP #GUADALUPE!!! You were great for the years I had you. Last weekend we went to float the Colorado River in Laughlin, Nevada and got caught in some wind storms. Got pushed into the docks and a pontoon popped both our floats. The float my radiocooler was on went between the pontoon and got stuck. When we unstuck it I had to grab it from floating down the river. Taking it to dry land I let the water out and then saw my electronics smoke!!! Time for a rebuild!!!
