Question Lost panel, where can I order a replacement?

Bought a used 2014 Voltage in May and have been in the mountains for the past three weeks. Have a 3990 Voltage with a custom paint job and the panel over the refrigeration gear popped off somewhere. Does anybody know if these are re-orderable through the factory or aftermarket companies?
Thx!

They are mostly white in color but I think I have seen them in black. Your local paint shop would have to match the paint scheme for you.


Any RV store or ebay or Amazon has them.

When I bought my 2014 3950 (with full body paint), that same panel was missing. They had a white one in place and had to paint it to match before we took delivery (which they did).

When I did my initial inspection of our 243 BHSL, I wondered how long before that wonky panel would stay on the trailer. Now I know 4 years............ughhh


What a stupid plastic connector!


Good Luck!

That's good compared to the door on the exhaust fan over the stove.

I'm beginning to think that the people that design these rv's are reactive to issues that come up and use the duck tape approach and seat-of-their-pants/on-the-fly engineering (for lack of a better word). After all, plastic and certain types of PVC deteriorate with being outdoors and in the sun, not to mention all types of weather. I was on the roof the other day and noticed that the crank vents are starting to get "old", pitted and frail as well as the skylights.

The vent covers are fragile when new. I think they fall under the four year MTBF idea.


The PVC gets sunburned by the UV rays. Do as the swimming pool installers do, cover the PVC with a few coats of spray paint. You'll see various colors of pump plumbing.
