    If you mean winter covers for the fridge vents, then yes you can buy them. Cheapest source is often CAK Tanks. You only use them when ambient temperature drops below 8oC to enable the fridge to keep working efficiently. They come in different sizes so you'll need to refer to your manual to see which ones you need. HTH.

    Good question and many thanks to Maz for your useful reply:thumb:
    I have just put ours on last week and noticed the other day that the top one is missing, don't know whether it dropped off or was pulled off. It was clipped on properly, so will now need to replace it:Sad:

    I made some out of some thick black plastic sheet. They seem to work fine and cost me nothing. They are for a Thetford fridge so fit inside the original vents blocking off a good deal of the incoming cold air.

    Got mine a couple of yrs ago at the Wrenbury Bring and Buy :thumb:
    I've also made push on covers for the Truma vents from DVD box and foam rubber.-Do Not use Boiler or Oven with these on !!
