Alternative to Ryco A360 Filter
« on: June 08, 2019, 12:18:28 PM »
Hoping there might be someone on here that knows of a slimline alternative to the Ryco A360 filter used by Track Trailer on the inside of the door in the fridge box on the Mk5 Tvan? I am having difficulty installing a handle on the pantry slide due to space and was thinking that if an alternative slimline filter was available it would solve my clearance problem.

Thanks in advance :)

Did you ever resolve this?

I have a similar need to install a thinner filter.

To the OP: could you use a piece of nylon cord instead of a fixed handle? The cord is flexible and doesn't mind getting squashed by the filter housing...

Just a thought...

Have you tried K&N filters: https://www.knfilters.com/search/universal/panel-air-filter/.
Alternatively look up Electrical Enclosure Vents.

Rob, thanks for the feedback; I got some handles made up by one of the members of the Facebook page which are great.  I've got two others installed on the sliding drawers, and just needed this one to work so it all matched.  Thanks for the suggestion, I'm not sure it will work though as you would need a fair bit of tension to release the clips on the Mk5 slider.

Frank, I was looking at the K&N Filter, it seemed like it was a little thinner (but a lot more expensive).  I might have to give them a try anyway and just see if it works.  I'lll give the electrical enclosure vents a look to and see if that brings up any other options.

Would a handle with an offset that cleared the filter work.  Or remove a section of the handle where the filter is, fit two droppers with a rod or tube between them.  Get back to the person that made the Handle and see what they say?
