Which ever cover you use, just make sure it is ventilated.

If it were my trailer and I couldnt find a cover I would remove the unit and put it back inside the cabinet with a home made spacer ring to set it back from the cabinet face to ckear the breaker swing. then I would go to the rv/hardware store and get a screened lovered vent in white and use self adheasive velcro tape to mount the lovered vent on the front side. But in the end is it worth the safety sake spend the 200 bucks or so and replace it? Best converter is a good vendor I bought my own complete load center from them, I would send them a picture and see if they can get a replacement cover for you, If not maybe they can identify who made it so at least you know what your shopping for.

Thanks so much for all of the ideas and useful information! The model is a Centurion which is no longer made. I called Scamp and they now use Progressive Dynamics XL3000 30amp for models with rooftop AC. I have contemplated replacing the whole thing but would rather spend the $$ someplace else if I can still use the one that's there. Becky is chomping at the bit to make the maiden voyage. Again thanks for the Help!

the only thing that holds the 110v breakers in place is the face you are missing,
loose breakers will cause heat and could cause a fire also the original face vents the heat and cooling fan for the convertor if just covered the convertor will over heat and could damage the electronics. it needs to be replaced with the correct cover
Mike are you suggesting the cover holds the cooling fan? If so, that might be what the wire hanging down is for?

How about a DIY solution?

Perhaps a white cutting board from the Dollar store that you trim to fit.

Then purchase two flush mount soffit vents from a big box store like Lowes.

Cut the hole(s) for the vents, screw them into the cutting board then velcro the new door to the cabinet face.

You could probably make the thing for about $20 and your time. And it would be white.

John, were you ever able to source what you need? If not, it may be worthwhile to send an email to this guy: Parts Guy at DeckTek since I see Centurion products listed. Don't let the title of the page throw you!

Thanks Donna for the info. Soon as I can will email them. Still haven't located anything. Have been working on Becky's fence on the sides of our stationary home. She has been insisting on this so our little one (Maggie) can go out back unleashed, Priorities! John
