Hole in Roof Vent Cover

We have a small hole in the cabin roof vent cover. However, I find no numbers stamped on the cover or the vent, so I don't know what replacement vent cover to buy. I looks like it can be taken apart and just a new cover put on, but not knowing the manufacture of the vent cover, it's impossible to order one. MH is 2015 Georgetown 329. Anyone done this before, please help.

Thanks,

Mike

Your local dealer should have one that fits.
Yes you can just take off the vent lid.
I'd also suggest installing max air covers while your doing the job.

Thank, Turbs. Will a MAX air cover fit on mine? I watched a video on how to install one, but I don't have the same fitting around the vent hole.

they will fit and is easy to install. Most covers are a 14X14 dimension. Hope this helps..

Yes Max Air All the way.

The only vent it may not fit is if you have one very close tot he edge like my bathroom vent.

Red face

When we had our Rockwood TT and camped at Navarre Beach, FL, an awful rainstorm came up, complete with hail. It woke our grandson up (he was sleeping on the sofa bed) with the rain dripping down in his head. It turned out the hail had managed to break a small hole in the roof vent. Because it was still raining and tape would not hold as even a temporary measure (still damp), I simply chewed a piece of gum and plugged the hole until we could have the vent cover replaced. It lasted the rest of the week until we got back home to have it replaced. Hey.....necessity is the mother of invention.

We lost ours a few week's ago to hail damage. duck tape got us through the night. Camping World had one in stock. they carry three sizes. Added cover to avoid future problems.

Emergency Fix

Patching the hole with gum is a great fix! I had the entire cover blow off and when it rained the next day, I took the screen and trim off of the inside and stuck a small umbrella up through the vent and opened it. A small bungee held it for 3 days during the rain before we headed home for a better repair.
A small umbrella travels with us all of the time now.
