Trillium 4500 plumbing parts?

I'm stuck, I'm in the middle of ordering parts and the trailer is out of town in storage. I've got a couple of questions.

The first deals with the gravity fill hatch, pictured on the left below.
Does anybody know if I need the 1-1/4" or 1-3/8" size?

I've found an electrical hatch.

Now I am assuming that the gray water hatch for draining the sink to a portable tote (shown below), has a similar style cover as the one above. But I can't find one anywhere. Does anyone know what it is called? Who might make it? Or who might sell it?

Sorry for the photo quality, they are cell phone pictures taken a few weeks back.

Thank you,

Roy

On second thought, I've probably shot myself in the foot for putting the 4500 in the title. I don't imagine Trillium would have used anything different on the 1300.

Are there any 1300 owners that might want to pipe in?

Hi Roy,

I made a point of scouring any and all RV stores in the provinces and states we visited for any NOS beige covers/hatches/fittings. I was even able to dissassemble a couple and put a new cover on an outlet/inlet to make them look nice. In the end, I replaced all the old weathered outlets/inlets with new ones. One place in particular that had a few was Hughes up in Orangeville. He was a Trillium dealer back in the day and doesn't throw anything out, lol.

Good luck,

Phil

Parts

I found all of these on E-bay..I have 4 trilliums (3)4500 and (1)1300 the gray water outlet is the same as the electrical one but has a water fitting inside it if you look close at your picture you can see what I'm talking about it poprivets inside the opening....On E-bay they are listed as colonial white instead of beige or almond I believe ... (it's been a while since I bought any but I remember there was something about the color that threw me at first)..Hope this helps..The electrical ones today are shaped like the water fill doors and does not have the little flip slide on them or the ones I bought didn't ...RANDY

Roy, I had to replace a few of the hatches on my trillium 1300. our local RV shop in Ottawa had the exact same hatches but only in white. I picked up some almond Krylon spraypaint to get a better match to original.

here is a link to their parts catalogue, look on the right side of the page linked you should see the gravity and city water hatches.

GO-RV.com - RV On-line Catalog

By the way, I have seen other RV dealers with this same online parts catalogue, you may find someone in TO that can order them in.

Oh, the RV dealer in Ottawa is at: Belangerrv.ca
i'll post photos of the hatches on my trillium if you'd like

Kevin

( i just re-read your post sorry, it looks like you are already that far ahead. )

for the gravity tank fill:

I have a 10 gallon storage tank (tu-co?) the flex hose that connects the tank and the outside hatch fits onto 1 1/4" barbed fittings at each end. if your tank is the same I would guess that the 1 1/4" is the cover that you need.

I wondered about that myself, thanks for posting the colour.

Thank you Randy, good eye!

Now that I have all this information, I can make a trip up to HughesRV as Phill4500 suggested.

Roy - call first, I wouldn't want you to waste a trip. As I recall we also bought several pieces of the plastic exterior window trim (he had both black and beige) as well as some curtain hooks and a few other bits and bobs. It's a bit of a run down place now but may yeild some good finds - no guarantee's though. I was there a year ago.

The other places I found some of the fittings was Sicards in Grimbsy and an Rv dealer in Waterford ( I can't remember the name but its the only one in town).
