replacement for pilot light box cover

The vented cover where the pilot light is located flew off during my trip home after purchasing my 1989 Terry TT. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement or what exactly is it called so I can search online?

If you are talking about ether the fridge or water heater, both are available in many sizes . You're sure to find one that fits.

The cover could be for the water heater or the refrigerator. You need to determine which appliance, what model number, then you can search. If you have an owners manual this may help you.
Also there should be a brass temperature/pressure release valve on a water heater, just like on a water heater for a house. The refrigerator will have a rectangular vent on the roof directly above the cover on the side of the trailer.

Duh , guess it is the water heater, I just saw the pilot light and thought... don't really know what I thought LOL. Now it should be easier to find the replacement cover, Thanks to everyone for your help.

The two most commonly used water heaters are Atwood and Suburban, and they are different shapes. Once you identify what you have, new outside covers are readily available. But be prepared for sticker shock when you hear the price.

Check out this place for a 2nd hand/salvaged W/H vent door ; they are very helpful.

Thanks for your help. It is an Atwood sized 17 3/4 x 14 outside measures. I will contact the link you suggested Senior Cheif and thanks to Whem2fish for the offer of a replacement, wish it fit.
