We need something to cover the raw fiberglass edges where my husband enlarged the opening for the new, larger refrigerator. I've heard of Trim Lock but I'm not sure if that's what we need. Would that work? Can anyone tell me where it's sold?

Call Scamp. They have a nice trim molding that slips over the edge of the fiberglass. My 2006 13' has it around all the cupboard openings. Probably around the fridge opening too, but I'm sure at the moment.

FYI, Trim-Loc is a brand name.

On the left nav bar, under Helpful-Links you'll find a topic: Moldings. You'll find the link to the Trim-Lok website and others there.

JC Whitney has a full offering of the trim as well.
One much less expensive option is to simply put molding around the fridge. You can either buy a molding strip at the lumber yard and stain it or make your own. I glued mine around the microwave with liquid nails and was simple to do.

What I've successfully used on exposed edges in our trailer is a plastic door edge guard, readily available at most auto related stores. Its used for door edgeing or fenderwell trim, just pushes on over the edges. Conformes well to curves and if you need a really tight radius, just apply heat with a blow drier and apply to the glass edges. Comes chrome, gold, black and some other colors too.

Sandra, Trim-Lok is generally only available from the manufacturer in fairly large rolls (like 100' or so); however, it can usually be bought by the foot at some of the larger truck stops that sell truck accessories, if you have one nearby. We live near the Iowa 80 truckstop and I've found many, many useful items in their "truck store".

My Scamp came with all sides of the openings covered with a nice little white trim except the side that the hinges are on. The reason there is no trim on that side is because a wooden backing is put on to keep the screws from working there way out and the trim is not wide enough to go over it. The factory had told me this when I was cutting a new door opening to be sure to back the screws with wood as they don't tend to vibrate out as much as they do when screwed into only fiberglass.

The overhead cabinets doors hang from the top consequently I was busting my knuckles on the raw fiberglass edge nearly every time I went into them. I wanted the trim to match so I ordered several lengths of trim from the factory. Since it's "U" channel and not wide enough to fit over the fiberglass and wood backing I simply cut the back side off making it an "L" channel. I had to file it down a little where the hinges are just to make it a little thinner so the door would close properly. I adhered the trim to the cabinet with contact cement.

Works great, looks nice and it all matches.

More good info, Roger & Joy! I'm going to try to get this done before we head out on our first trip this spring.
