Removing the stove.

Anyone know how to remove the two burner from a '74 Trillium 13', for servicing?

Cheers

It's usually pretty easy. Begin by shutting off the gas at the propane tank

I've never done it on a Trillium but have on four other rigs. Usually the top lifts up exposing the burners. This might require removing two screws or pressing a clip. Sometimes it is just a pressure fit and flips up.

Lifting the top may expose the gas line connection. We again make sure we have shut off the gas at the propane tank. When you disconnect the gas line there will still be some gas in the line that should quickly dissapate.

(If this does not expose the gas line connection, it will certainly be under neath the stove top and can be disconnected there.)

We than undo the gas line fitting, usually a copper line about 3/8" in diameter.

Their may be a couple more screws that hold the top in after you lift the burner cover.

Once we have disconnected the gas line and removed the stove we put a plug in the gas feed line to prevent any leakage should some one open the propane tank valve.

Hope this helps,

Norm

I just removed the stove in our 74 trillium. I will take a few photos in the next day or two to help you out.

On my '80 Trillium, you remove the grates, three clips hold them down and you just bend them a little to remove. The top just lifts straight up. There are two posts on the under side of the top that "snap" into a mating hole in the stove base.

Our stove - 1974 Trillium

Mine is just like Brian described. There are three layers: the top, the burner layer and the outter box. The burner grates held down with clips and two cabinet post-clip thingies hold the top down to the outer box. The layer beneath (the burner layer) is screwed into the outer metal box with four screws and then four more screws mount the outter box into the cabinet. See the pictures of it out of the trailer below. The gas line was a bit of a wiggle to push out of the box once it was undone.

I am planning on using Barkeepers friend to polish up the top and paint the inner layers with high heat Tremclad.

Good Luck!

Thanks you so very much! I was worried about prying up the top layer and possibly bending it - I couldn't see or feel any sort of hold-down

Thanks again.
