Looking for RV repair shops in Toronto area

Anyone know of an RV repair shop in the Toronto area?
Or someone willing to help solve a few issues.
I just acquired a 1980 Trillium 4500 and need help getting things working: lights, fridge, etc.
I also need some parts- the black rubber band around the outside, the plastic screw covers around the windows, etc.
Thanks

we can walk you through a lot of stuff here on the forum, there is also Paul Neumeister (spelling?) in southern ontario, I'm sure you can find his name on this site somewhere
start with something small, take pictures and ask lots of questions

Spend some time reading on Trillium belly band. You don't need the black rubber, the entire band needs to be removed with some fiberglass work.

Windows need to be removed, new seal material installed, rotten wood replaced, and windows reinstalled. Once complete the black screw cover is readily available.

Trilliums are great but have some well known shortcomings many have addressed. Check out the manufacturers tab on the top right of the screen and then click on Trillium. Read the various threads and you will learn a lot very quickly.

Lights can be anything from bad converter, to wiring, to bulbs, to you name it. If you have the original power center, its 40 years and at the end of its life. Various threads on power center replacement too.

Appliances are not unique to Trillium, so the same folks that repair RV appliances should be able to fix yours. Do realize the Trillium had a small refrigerator, no replacements out there that fit without cabinet being modified. So keeping the old one up and running is the best option.

Damn shame all the Summer Ontario rallies have been cancelled this year. They would be great opportunities to get all the help you could possibly want.
I'll especially miss the Ontario Bolerama.

Good luck with your fun project and I hope to see your restored gem next Summer, or maybe at the Niagara rally in Sept. if that isn't also cancelled.

the black rubber in the belly band can be purchased at any RV or boat dealer, its a common trim, and also available in colours, its called vinyl trim insert, just need to measure the flattened width to make sure you get the right stuff

Thank you Joe.
