DIY Battery Tool Box Build – Travel Trailer Project

Building the aluminum battery / tool box for the front of the Travel Trailer. This was my first time welding aluminum with a spool gun and bending/forming sheet metal of this thickness. So there was quite a bit of trial and error learning, but overall I’m really happy with the result!
The primary purpose of the box will be to house my 12v batteries, 12v wiring and some other tools at the front of the Travel Trailer. But I’m sure I might find some other uses as well 😀

Please let me know if you have any questions 🙂

Big thanks to Industrial Metal Supply and Forney Industries for partnering with me on this project! Forney Industries supplied the spool gun to use for welding the aluminum. And Industrial Metal Supply supplied the aluminum diamond plate.

Check them out for all sorts of welding and metal working products!
