Post no 4 shows the whole width covered including the gas exhaust.

If the genuine Thetford winter cover does block the exhaust then (imo) it should come with a warning of the danger in leaving it in place if/when the fridge is used..

Dometic winter covers do not obstruct the gas exhaust

Re: Post No 4: The reason for this is because I don't use my van during the winter months so no worries about covering the gas exhaust.

Re: Post No 5: I will change it to "This is where" just for you beejay. The genuine Thetford winter cover covers the area in between the area covered by the arrows. My understanding of the cover is it is perfectly safe to use the fridge on gas while the cover is in place.

I have no idea about the Dometic winter covers.

Every image hosted by Photobucket, used on every website has been disabled by PB. They are seeking those using PB for image hosting to be used on third party web sites, pay them a ransom of £400 to regain access.

There is simple workaround to avoid paying the PB ransom...

Who ever posted the link to the PB image, needs to edit the link by adding [~original]
ignoring the square brackets, between jpg and [/IMG] at the end of the PB link.

The section at the end would as original read something like....

/TAZU%20MC%20Fail1_zpsc1zvuve8.jpg[/IMG]

That would need to be edited, to read

/TAZU%20MC%20Fail1_zpsc1zvuve8.jpg~original[/IMG]
Highlighted in red, to make the difference stand out.

Using this site's own editor, you would need to click the button top /right to 'switch editor mode', to edit the link directly.

Graham has not been on this forum for a very long time as they have bought a static. Last year when we bought the winter vents they cost us £13 each for the Dometic fridge.

Hi Campers,

Yes, we have just joined your great "Caravaning info club", if that's the right way to say it.. !

We have been a caravan/camper van and motor home family for years. Whilst we still have our Coachman van, we tend to get out more in our Swift motor home. And we are all year people with our trips and visits.So we might venture down to Spain/Portugal after Christmas for 2 or 3 months, just to see how that goes..

With our kid's grown up now, so we just take the grand kids away now and again, but only for short breaks.... !!

We hope you all had a great summer this year with your trips as we did..

Take care,

Brian & Fran... Herne Bay, Kent
