Re: Battery Compartment Door by Steve Trulove
Post New Message Greetings,

I’m currently refurbishing a 1982 Collins 5th Wheel camper. (Made in Harrisburg, OR.)

Original equipment included a side-mounted (through the exterior wall) battery storage compartment that consists of a molded plastic insert with a molded track and integrated slide-out battery tray, and a hatch cover.

The platform and compartment accommodates one standard 12v RV battery. (Approx. compartment dimensions = 10"H X 15"W X 7-1/2"D)

The hatch cover attaches at the top of the plastic insert, and locks into a slot at the bottom of the insert.

I have been unable to determine whether Collins has moved or is no longer in business, and have been unable to contact them, but assume they acquired the battery compartment components from a third-party fabricator/manufacturer.

I have also been unable via the Internet, to locate anything similar to the OEM battery compartment and hatch in order to replace the existing one. (The existing one is way beyond repair)

Does anyone out there know of anyone who carries the same or similar exterior, side-mounted (through-wall), battery compartment and hatch cover?

Sincere Thanks,
Steve T.
