    Anyone know if just the flap on the electric in connector is replaceable or do you have to change the whole thing. The flap/lid is broke on mine.

    I wish someone made a good one.

    The mickey mouse plastic on two I've had is crap and gets seriously brittle in the cold weather.

    I've just fitted a Bullfinch BBQ point, the plastic is in A_Different_League, I don't think that lid is going fail in a hurry.

    Oddly enough the Germans make a better one, (no surprise there) but haven't seen them on sale in the UK ..

    This product looks like it .... how much better I don't know.

    Difficult to tell without hands on, it's all down to plastic/thickness. This one would be a big problem for me being totally different in fit the the "normal" one.

    I had thought of making a lid, but.........

    If its the sort in the photo in the post above you can easily just change the flap, which I did last year on our Pilote.

    Salope leisure - just outside Shrewsbury - sell them and I think most decent caravan accessory shops would.
