Lost Cover/Hatch

I have a 2013 Forest River Rockwood 2080 Pop-up. There is an access panel where the refrigerator can be turned on/off.

Unfortunately I didn't see it happen, but after I stopped I noticed I'm missing a cover/hatch.

Anyone know a good place online where I could find a replacement?

Most dealerships carry an assortment of access panels or you could probably order one directly from Forest River. I would also check online and see what is available on ebay, Amazon or maybe Adventure RV.

My camper is being stored about an hours drive from me...any clue what the brand name the fridge is? I believe I might have found a vent/access door.

Unless you have a high wall pop-up, chances are the fridge is a Dometic 4223 - used on most all the Forest River standard height pop-ups and a-frames in recent years.

Forest River also uses a Dometic installation kit - the grills for both upper and lower vents are Dometic parts. They are also a very poorly designed grill - mine won't pass wind in a hurricane. Because the Dometic grills are so resistant to air flow, the fridge doesn't work as well as it should. Several of us with A-frames have installed computer cooling fans on the upper grill to get the air moving out the top and the fridge working correctly. With the fan on, I have to turn the cooling way down to prevent the fridge from freezing the contents - even in Texas-hot weather.

Final note, I strongly recommend getting a battery-powered wireless outdoor thermometer ($10 at Walmart) to keep track of how your fridge is doing.
