I've got a very nice 1975 Trillium
1300; bought it about 3 years ago. We ran the Dometic fridge
for 2 summers and it worked very well. But this year, after lighting
the burner, it goes out immediately after releasing the blue plunger. Tried many times at different thermostat settings; sometimes holding the blue plunger depressed for up to a minute. The burner always lights
right away and I can see a flickering yellow flame through the view port. But the flame always goes out as soon as the plunger is released.
I've taken precautions to level the trailer; wind doesn't seem to be the problem; ambient temperature is about 23 C.
Any help greatly appreciated.
I'm a licensed mechanic, so if you'd like to suggest some serious dismantling, and can provide the details of the method, I'd be happy to dig in.
Alternatively, if you can recommend a good repair shop in the Toronto area that might be good too.
Thanks very much.
