Thanks! See u on new threads and let me know your consulting fees
Desperate to zep it all clean now but sealant first.
No not ripped off. That was the fridge that came with the trailer. The year is what you were misinformed about. The previous owner probably did not know. That is kinda why I started the serial number thread. Nobody seems to know the year of their Trilliums.

I have no consulting fee. In fact, I give stuff away. Want a group 24 gel cell battery?

Congrats on your new trailer. You might want to hold off on that Zep for a bit. We had orgainized a group buy on decals along with tire and tank covers. I see your stripes are cracking like mine. Tom from TrillilumRV indicated he was ordering a few extra's in. You still might be in time to get some.

Why yes actually

I'd love a big battery right about now! Am going to head to our local wrecker this aft and see just about this item. No idea about the electric system. Or the propane or the water. We have a owners manual from trillium but really does not go into any specifics. We are happy with the find in these parts in particularly almost impossible to find something like this I think. Just literally bought it sight unseen 2 days ago and expected some work needed...all good. Thanks for the valuable insight.

Thanks Roy I did see that thread. May sound funny but I kinda like the worn look. Will think about it though. Should I pm you for cost? Won't be any zepping anytime soon. Probably could use a tank cover more so. Will be a fun little rig. No more tenting ...yahoo!

Just signing in.
All my documentation sez 1978
Solid door window.
RM211
Just saw my first other 4500 sighting in the wild. Exterior looked perfect. Said he just bought it for 400$ Sittin' in a field.
Like UFO's down here; rarely seen, and nobody knows what the F... they are.

Scott, I am going to re-post your info in the serial number thread. That way it will make it onto the list:
http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...tml#post451605

Your serial number, plus your door window, and I am guessing your kitchen does not have protrusion for a larger fridge, all add up to a 1977. I have a 1972 1300 that was registered as a 1979, when I bought it.
Roy in TO has an RM211 in his 1979, but the kitchen still has room for a larger fridge.

Scrape scrape cut cut

Old silicone can really suck eh? This is on the top of belly band.
This job has been done before on this rig an I can see how it would leak when I was blasting the band with pressure water to get stashed away grime behind the band. Hoping anyways ....hoping to avoid window removal for now. Also I was hoping to use a Sika product but no one is able to sell it local. May use 3m urethane but it is black and not sure of the UV resistance. It is used for bonding in windshields and lasts ages in that use anyway..very tough.

Any thoughts?

Three weeks, (if you are as slow as I am) and your Trillium's belly band will never leak again.

Thanks David. Very tempting. Will do the bb delete task over winter or fall...right now I need to get some use out of it now with the fam so I just cleaned the area well and went with a good silicone again. Have to hit windows and awning strip rivets on roof.
Cheers,
John

Ummm. Silicone is not your friend. Mono Ultra would have been a better choice. Not such an issue on the belly band, if you are planning to grind it off, but it will fail after about 3 years, and it will be very hard to remove, as you know.
