Hi everyone,
I have a 1978 Trillium 1300. My Duo-therm furnace does not have a cover(grill) and I would like to ask where might I find a used parts place?
Thanks
BillM

Do you have a model number for the furnace?

This is the grille of the Duo-Therm that I've seen mounted "stock" in the 1970s Trilliums. Bill, is this what your furnace looks like? I do also have copies of the manuals for this model (and so could get a model number if you don't have it).

(Of course it could have been added later and be different, but since I have a photo of the typical stock Trillium Duo-Therm showing the grille I thought I'd post it.)

Hey Dan,
That looks like the one I pulled off and need to replace. I've looked around online at RV parts places however no one seems to have it as far as I have looked.
Thanks,
Bill

Bill,
Another solution might be to take the old one to a sheet-metal shop and have them make a replacement. The louvers might be a slightly different size, but as long as it functions...who cares? If the shop does stainless steel work for restaurants they might be able to make one fancier than the original.

We hope your Trill soon has a furnace cover,
Kurt & Ann K.

<span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:100%">Raya...I've been slogging through countless threads tonight looking for a reference to the Duo Therm furnace on my 1978 Trillium. My furnace pilot works, but the burner will not ignite. In your reply of Nov 25 2008 you included a photo and said you had copies of the manuals for this model. I'm fairly certain its the same as I have. Mine is model # 65810-002. I'd love to see the manual for this model. Can you help me? Thanks....</span>

Marv, it could be that the pilot is not heating the thermocouple enough to allow the burner to light .
make sure the flame from the pilot is heating the thermocouple well and is mostly centered on it, not having the flame off to one side.

Marvon,

I do have the manuals for the furnace I showed (typical of 1970s Trilliums from what I've seen). I actually had them to hand when I posted; now I'll have to see if I can root around and find them. I've been doing some reorganizing, and you know what that means... "I know I saw that; now where did I put it?" I will look.

Raya
