Three covers to partially block the outside cover and a formed plate to cover the pilot light. It was a very easy install and worked very well.

Check the flame, clean the orifice

First trip out two years ago, fridge quit on propane.
Solution, tear off the flame guard, remove the orifice (10mm?) and inspect and clean said orifice--wasn't plugged, just obstructed. As I recall, lighter fluid on a tooth pick to clean it out. Worked till sold this summer...
Dealer suggested might be dirt in the lines from the install...
Good Luck and happy travels.

When using propane make sure you are as level as possible.

That is true regardless of the heat source.

The most critical leveling is side to side on the reefer............so if it is mounted on a side wall, the fore/aft level of the camper is critical.

It is the tubing on the rear of the reefer, the cooling unit itself which has a very shallow slope and the fluid in the tubing must be able to travel from top to bottom. If it is off level for any length of time (even just a few hours) the fluid stops flowing and creates a stoppage in the corner bends. If this happens it CANNOT be fixed. The repair is a new cooling unit, they are not serviceable.

Not being level while traveling isnt a problem because the up and down movement over the road keeps the fluid moving.
