My side refrigerator vent door went missing and I am looking to replace it. It is for the Birchaven and is a little smaller than 20" x 12" (Dometic Part #RM2217). I believe it is smaller than the Royal ones which run around 22x14. None of the vendors had one that will do. Anyone got an original lying around, or something that will fit the hole?

Thanks

Tim Taylor

The hinge gave way on the door to mine, so I ended up modifying one of the plastic ones from Applied. It is larger, but once the back side is cut away, it conforms to the curve of the coach, and the vents on the door just fit inside the stock opening. YMMV. I had to cut a piece of aluminum angle to serve as the latch plates, but that was not hard to do.

I think I still have the old door if you want to try and re-attach a hinge, but I will not be back home to look until February.
