it depends how often you find yourself in this situation. For me, we do alot of camping and I will use this many times a year. If its going to be a 1 time thing or even 1 or 2 times a year, then I would have stuck with the big brute trash can and party taps.

I have a 7 product plate as well. When you "jump" the un used passes you just connect some tubing from the " in" side to the "out side" of the 3 unused in/out posts?

Why did you need them so long for camping?

My plan is that it will sit in my storage area on my 5th wheel. The lines will run out under the fifth wheel to my keg cart. Pics will follow once the camper comes out of storage for the summer.

I would love to see your complete setup, as I am planning a very similar project for our camping trips.

I love this setup. I am about to build a 6 tapper for my Homebrew club and I will probably use this as the basic design. Is there anything you would change if you were doing it again?

not really. It would be nice to have bulkheads through the back for each line, but I just couldnt justify the extra money, would have been about an extra $100 bucks. For this year, I will end up cutting the lines down some. I had made them extra long with the intention of putting this is one storage compartment on my camper and running the lines to another storage area where the kegs would be. I ended up making this fit on a cart that has the kegs on board, so I dont need such long lines.
