Stainless steel water fill doors...

to replace the late model plastic ones are now available by calling AS. Not on the website yet.

I ordered mine today, albeit sight unseen.

So How much did it cost?

Yeah, It should be here by Monday or so...maybe yet this week. I'll let you know how it looks. From description, it is pretty much a duplicate of the original with the 2 pipe fittings, screen for the vent, an inside cap and 2 gaskets??? Presumably one for the skin and one for the door.

If it is quality, I can see a lot of hand work and welding, so I guess the price is to be expected. I'd really like to have the SS wrap compartments, but I had just gone to the trouble to strip, sand and refinish my peeling and corroded ones before they came out.

Hey Rich- how did the water fill work out? Can you post your review and pics? I'm in need of upgrading my old 1976, and have been waiting for this to be available. $185 bones for a fill door... whoa!

Thanks!
Micky

I'll second that. Wow. I wouldn't mind replacing the plastic fill door, but at $185 I might have to think about that a little more.

Hi Mickey,

I won't be installing the door until spring when I get the AS out of storage, but here are some pics. It is a well made, high quality piece with a gasket on both the door and for the skin/door frame interface.

I did seal some areas which I felt could allow water behind the skin when I overfill the FW tank.

I sealed the seam all around the perimeter, the hose neck, the vent neck and the two rivets which hold the anti-spin fill neck brace. I used Par-bond.

Great! We have replaced the furnace, range exhaust and outdoor shower door. I have always disliked the plastic water fill door.

Has anyone actually installed this? We have had ours for awhile now but the weather has been too cold to do anything about it.

Installed mine (and water heater door, furnace door, vent, outside shower door -- I've gone all SS), and it works fine. Bit of a hassle to install as I had to do some minor trimming on the panel so it'd fit correctly. Looks so much better.

By trimming do you mean on the trailer? Did you run into any problems with the water hookup?

I had to trim a bit of the panel on the trailer, wasn't a big deal. No problems at all with the water hookup. Used the trailer for about 10 days in January (FL), multiple hookup occasions. Zero issues.
