Trillium Cover

Anyone heard of Aqua-Sheds by Adco? We live in the wet Pacific Northwest. Our RV man recommended these.
Thanks for your thoughts!

My trailer is to heavy to move it around with a wheel on the jack. Besides, I'm afraid I could bend the tube on the jack. I use one of these: Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly

Thanks, Donna. So this is how you get your Scamp into tight places? Is it too much to pull it on your own? We don't have our Trillium with us yet. It's still at the RV shop.

Hi Donna,
I just bought one of those for use with a utility trailer; The specs say for trailers up to 600 lbs. So you use this with your travel trailer, which is over 600lbs. Are they meaning 600lbs. tongue weight?

That's tongue weight that's being measured... not total weight for the trailer. Yes, I can move my 2200# trailer around on a level asphalt pad with the el-cheapo Harbor Freight dolly. It takes some grunting and groaning.. but once it starts to move, it moves well. AND, resting on the dolly, my Scamp is heavy tongue down (fulcrum effect). If it was level on the dolly I would probably grunt and groan 50% less

Thanks for that info, Donna. I look forward to using the dolly. My back could use a rest!

If your trailer has brakes, and there may be hills involved in your moves, then this may come in handy.

That's pretty neat electronics there!
My trailer has no brakes though.

Trillium Refrigerator Replacement

We have our Trillium in for several repairs, including replacement of the old nonworking Dometic refrigerator with a recommended #2193 model. But our repairman says the new fridge is deeper than the old one and will stick out, blocking the way for the gaucho bed drawer below. The previous fridge was 17 5/8" deep; the current one is 21 1/2" deep. Any suggestions? We're hoping to take her out for a trip to see our kids in Oregon this weekend. She's been in repair since Sept. 28.

I'm not sure how much it would block the drawer, but is it possible to trim the drawer a little and still clear the fridge. I wanted to share this link where a deeper fridge was installed. He trimed it out nicely and it doesn't look like it protrudes much. Another trillium owner added space in the rear of the compartment. If you do a search, you'll find others.

First off, what is wrong with it. Have you tried to run it on AC? The gas lines get pluged up with spider webs, but if it will run on AC, or DC, it is repairable.

Instead of a new one, another option is locating another RM211. They were very common. I have two working spares. In total I have acquired three of these. The first one I bought, for $80, off a guy that makes old pop up tent trailers into flat deck trailers for quads, and snowmobiles. The other two came to me for free.

Hello David, Well we've already shelled out $900 for the new fridge and it has been installed. Wish I had your hindsight. We'll check in more as we repair the furnace. Meanwhile our repairman said the fridge just wasn't working at all. If it were only a matter of spiderwebs, I think he would have told us. We're taking her out this weekend. Have hardly seen her since we bought her. Thanks again, for your common sensicalness.
Kate

Hello David,
We have leaks on the driver's side dinette. Coming in through the window? Have the bellyband repaired, the fridge replaced, the electric rewired. Still has a mildewy chemical smell inside. Any suggestions?
