Digging this thread out after years.... I vote repair. The aftermarket scoop I have has a radius which doesnt match the trailer. Too bad, it cost almost $400 Combustion air is something to take seriously .... seal those vents.

Running on electricity presents no danger, but when the refer is run on propane the flame exhausts thru a little chiminey just under the flue, but to the side is the underside of the sink. As long as there is an up draft I doubt there would be any problem, but I'd prefer a closed environment, but without an extensive redesign and rebuild of the galley I don't see how that could be done. I'm dissapointed in the way Airstream incorporated the refrigerator into the galley.
I completely agree. When I installed the new fridge in my 66 Tradewind, I took great pains to seal the exhaust duct to keep carbon monoxide out of the interior of the trailer. See Dan's 66 Tradewind Improvements (post #33) for details.
