And, since we are talking about these hatch covers. The last trailer I used had the round hatch. I noticed that one of the little pegs that is supposed to snap down to keep it closed had broken off. The two square hatches seem to use a different mechanism for closing. Any comments on experiences with the different mechanisms?
And, can the second one be closed when the cord is extended (is there an opening in the cover?)

I know this is an old thread, but I've looked and looked and cannot find a replacement door for the cord port; it's completely missing. Can you tell me where you found yours?

Also, 3 of the little rubber grommets that turn to keep the big doors on the electrical switches on the outside secure are gone. Suggestions? I didn't find anything like them on the Scamp website.

Thanks for any help! / JC

Pictures of port and panel

I don't know why they're appearing sideways (tilt to the left to see them properly); in the preview, they were correctly situated.

It's nighttime, so if you need better pics, let me know.

Thanks!

So sorry; I should have posted the inside view, as well. The whole thing is about an inch ~ front outside to inside rear.

Oddly, when I turned the front from horizontal to vertical just now, I found that the inside does not move at all, so it must be more complicated than just a little rubber thing. The front part apparently locks over something in the horizontal position.

I just tried it again ~ to see if the inside just compresses to hold it in, but ~ no, turning the front part actually locks something. It won't come off unless it's turned to vertical.

Hope I don't have to buy a whole new panel to get it right; I'm just afraid it's going to fly off going down the road.

Turning that 90* left or right locks the vent cover in place. There is nothing but plastic to plastic contact. They can be a bit stubborn to turn once in a while but a quarter works pretty well in the slot. Some members keep a few extras on hand....just in case. BTW, if you should have one break while out camping, I'd take the cover off and stow it away so it doesn't sail away somewhere.

I would gladly buy some extras, if only I could find out where to buy them. I only have the one on this panel. Do you have a link? I could not find them anywhere on the Scamp site.

Thanks, Dave.

I don't have a link but I would think most RV stores have them as they are somewhat common now. I do believe Little House Customs carry them and they are a member of this site.

Are those turn latches on the vent cover by the fridge? On our Casita , after removing the cover, there are two places where a screw can go into at the bottom of the part that is attached to the trailer (the frame for the cover) I drilled two holes in the cover at those locations so I can put in sheet metal screws for extra security to hold the cover on. I don't trust the plastic latches. As for the cord port, I bought one on eBay, then found it didn't fit the hole in the trailer and had to order another the correct size, so you need to know the hole size

No; it's a Scamp, but yes ~ it's the outside fridge control cover. I'll look into the sheet metal screw fix, and I'll be sure to measure the cord port. Thanks!

Thanks, Dave!

Wish there were "like" or "thanks" buttons for these threads. I feel guilty if I don't acknowledge a good suggestion or answer. Having a couple of acknowledgement buttons would make the threads much shorter, IMO.
