Hatch covers

What is the real name for the outside covers or recepticals that are used for the water and shoreline plugs? I have 4 and they are brittle and need replacing.

You usually can't buy just the covers, you have to buy a whole new assembly. But they are called names like "Cable Hatch". Look in any of the on-line RV suppliers like PPL motorhomes or etrailer.com for better names.

If you put a pic of of what you're trying to replace many people might be able to help. Not all of us are familiar with Trilliums.

I'll do that when I get home. It would be the whole assembly I would need to replace. If I know what they are called I can search on line easier

Yours look a little different than mine. I need to replace all 4 on my '76 as well. They are all 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" outside dimensions.
-City water
-Gravity water fill
-Electrical (120V pull-out right now, though would like to go with a disconnect type)
-Drain (not sure what this is called, it is to hook a garden hose to, when using the sink inside, just the opposite threads of the City water connection)

You will find what you need at most RV supply shops as they are pretty common/basic hatches.

In the meantime take a look at CampingWorld.com Electrical Hatches & Outlets.

Also Campingworld.com water hatch.

i have searched their site over Carol, but found no 3 1/2" square hatches, and nothing for the grey water drain. I once saw a grey water drain like I am looking for, but since then have been unable to find it again. I may just put in some kind of holding tank, and eliminate that drain, we'll see.

Thanks for the links. I'll stop into the RV dealer about 30 km away and see if they have anything

Not sure if this has everything out there but I have found this RV On-line Catalog to be helpful in finding various items that Camping world does not seem to have on their on line store. I think a lot of the RV shops use this catalogue as well.

That link has the hatch for the power cord. Don't see the water ones for a match but I'll keep looking

I have links to 3 of the 4. I have found the drain fitting, but not in a 3 1/2" square style. All at a Canadian store too.

Great links Jim. I don't see any measurements on these. I'll let everyone know how I make out tomorrow.
