Trillium 1300 Cable Hatch

Just removed the cable hatch and sadly the door self destructed. I would prefer to find a replacement, maybe you removed your cable hatch?

If not Ill probably just find a scrap piece of fiberglass and mount a sealed 15 amp power inlet in its place.

Thanks!

This "cable hatch" can still be purchased on Amazon and other places as well. Here is a link to the Amazon item:

I ordered the same one. It worked for me. Then later I inserted a Marinco 15 amp inlet into it.

Yes, I was going to copy your fine idea! I got the Marinco piece, then the hatch disintegrated when I removed it. Go figure, at 41 years old, the plastic hatch got too brittle.

Pretty big gap between the Marinco piece and the hatch sleeve.

Yes pretty big gap. I squished closed cell polyurethane backer rod in the gap. I will probably make it permanent with epoxy or construction adhesive.

Done!

Used pipe insulation to make up the space in the hatch.
