    Hi David,
    Hi read a previous post from you about the propane furnace control valve. Good post by the way, it is very helpful. I have the same furnace than yours, and the previous owner cut the capillary thermal sensor from it. Do you have any idea where you can get that part? I know it’s an old post, but do you still have the part from your disassembled valve?

    It’s valve PN : RV18AA02

    I would prefer keeping the original valve rather then installing the replacement.

    Hi David
    After attending a Bolerama in Quebec last September, we started making a list of Trillium 5500 owners. Then we found out that you already had such a list dating from 2014. Could you help us track the 5500 trailers left? Our trailer's number is 55332-0066. We are from Laval, QC.

    Hi Dave,
    We removed the old cauk along the belly band as it was old and ugly .
    What is the proper cauk to use and the proper way to cauk the trailer.
    It does leak a bit.Can you answer the same for the windows?
    Thank you,

    Hey David, I have been told by many to chat with you about my Vintage Trillium. My trailer is a strange one, the taillights that would normally fit on a vintage model trillium will not fit and my decal where my serial number said it was made in Richmond Hill at 95 Newkirk Rd. I was chatting with Paul Neumeister (A-1 auto refinishing) and he thought all trillium's of that era had were from the same mold and should the lights should fit. In addition I have a plexi-glass window in the front, and one guy on the Trillium Facebook group mentioned he had a rear one. I just figured someone replaced it but he thought that those were original windows to that year.

    Hi David, from what I've read you seem to be the one to ask, if I may... What is the weight of the smallest Trillium? I'm pulling with a 2002 Buick Century V-6 3.1L with added transmission cooler. And, is there a certain year of Trillium lighter than another? I really like the Trilliums and hope they're light enough for me. Thanks, Randy

    Hi Dave, thanks for pointing out to me that I should change my listing title. Question: how do I go back and edit an old post on here? I can't quite seem to figure it out. Thanks.

    Hi Dave - Question for you - our tail light is leaking, a lot! We have taken it off and going to replace it - should there be a gasket of some sort in between the trailer and the light itself or just caulk the seam between the trailer and light when on?

    Not sure what the original light should even look like?

    Hi David just wondered with all your trillium experience have you ever seen on a 1300 anyone remove the bunks on the one side and make a table with two benches. If so any pictures of info. You would lose the bunkbed and storage on bottom but can always leave bed made on the table side.
    Thanks for looking
