Fridge seal: It will be a little complicated since the old rear shroud seal piece probably won't fit the newer fridges. Make sure whatever you make fits well.
Could someone point me to some info about this? How would I know if my "new" 4500 has the original fridge and how would I check this seal?

Cheers!

Glen

Hi Glen,
When I bought my Trillium 4500 6 1/2 years ago it had the "Original" frig in it. If you can take a inside photo and either post it or sent to my e-mail, I can tell you. dbaston[at]comcast.net

Glen,

I've seen Trilliums with a number of different fridge types and sizes, so I think there were options. My Boler has a paper tag inside the cupboard door listing which models of which appliances came with it, and the Trillium might have info like this inside the closet door.

Even so, you never know if someone replaced the original with a like model at some point. I think the main thing is that the back of the refrigerator should be vented to the outside and sealed off from the inside. Specifically, the combustion byproducts should not have a sway to get into the inside of the trailer - that's what you're sealing against.

I have seen a number of eggs in which that seal was not great; I'm not even sure how well the mfgrs did it, sometimes. After all these years it is worth checking out, even if you do have the original fridge, in my opinion.

Hi Raya,

Yeah, I should just take a look in the back for that and other signs of things going south Although I have not tried 12 volts yet, the 120V and propane fired sides sure work nicely. When the significance of the seal was raised in another thread, I was wondering if there was a specific part or gasket in question, but I could certainly look at it terms of where might the exhaust seep back in.

Cheers!

Glen

HI Dave,

Unfortunately the trillium is stored more than an hour away, so photos are not possible at this time. When I pick up the trailer next week, I'll be on the road for awhile and any reply I might make with photos is a long time coming While I'm on the road I might pull off the outside grill and take a peek.

Cheers!

Glen
