Wanted: Front grille for Duo Therm furnace

Need to replace the front grille on my Duo-Therm gravity furnace (65211-2) in my 74 Trillium. Let me know what you got.

Daniel,

Check the Helpful-Links section under Resources on the left side-bar. One of the best places I've found is www.rvdoctoregearge.com

Best of luck,

Maybe a grill off a different brand will fit. What's the measurement?

No go. Let's try this again.

I still have my original grille but it got damaged and lost a bunch of its little metal fins (which I kept) due to the entire cover going loose in the trailer on a few trips. I may consider trying to fix it up. Would anyone perhaps know how to weld this type of very thin metal?

I found a picture of an identical grille in someone's gallery here (bottom of picture). I hope the owner of this pic doesn't mind my posting it here.

I would try JB Weld, Because I'm cheap.

I tried "steel" epoxy already, which I assume is pretty close to JB Weld, without success. The broken metal fins really don't have very much to grip on.

You might carry it some where and have it brassed or soldered...

Or you might go to a heating and air guy and see if he has something close to matching that door.

Rebump. Other attempts have failed so far.

Bumpity-do. Attempts to fix it have just made it worse.

Most of these things are carbon steel, enameled with spot welded brackets. If that is what yours is, grind off the enamel where necessary and MIG weld it.
