Replacement Vent Lids

Does anyone know the model and/or style of vent lids that are used on Forester RV's? I assume they use the same vent type across the whole line of Forester models but could possibly change it for a particular model year. I have a 2016 3011 and the lids in the bath and kitchen are really brittle now and could start breaking apart at some point. In fact, I have already broken off a corner last year on one just but hitting it with my foot one day. That got a temporary fix with some eternabond which I'm sure would outlive the rest of the lid I let it.

It's a pretty generic item, so lots of aftermarket options are available. Just measure your size.

As an aside, I probably wouldn't replace them with the same ones if they only lasted three years.

Replaced ours last year on our Forester.

There are a couple types of hinges so need to make sure you get the same type.

We replaced with polycarbonate ones so they should hold up much better than the original.

Gumpster, that is my plan as well to use polycarbonate. Now, just need to figure out which hinge type I currently have.

Yeah, I had to check mine. Stopped at a local dealer and they gave me one - if course wrong hinge type.

If they are the same as 2014 they should be the rolled type - may need a flat blade screw driver to open it up a bit to get the old ones.

Here is a pic of the vent covers I have and it does look like the example I attached earlier. I have a Campingworld $25 certificate so this may be a good use for it.
