2014 2860DS Roof Vent Replacements

I have a 2014 2860DS that needs 2 new stock vent covers in rear bedroom and in bathroom. The dealer couldn't tell me what size and hinge was stock on the MH. Can anyone tell me for sure what came stock on that model and what hinge also. I can't look at it now and want to buy the covers to take to where its parked. Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

Ron

From what I know you have to look at them to determine which ones you have. Iím not a fan of Camping World but Iím not stable enough to be climbing on the roof so I took my camper to them luckily they had time then to change them out for about $75 each.

99% of them are Heng 14” vents. Why replace el cheapo’s with the same thing?

The ones they installed were by far. Better than the junk FR had installed.

so found out one is a Hengs fan 122112 one is same size not a fan both have same vent cover no markings about 14 1/2' (give or take they are warped somewhat) with a 9 1/2" slide type hinge. They seem larger than the 14" that are talked about?? They lasted about 3 yrs in Washington state. So if I don't put cheap ones back on what is a good one to go with that will work on my MH. Ill probably put the dome covers on later, but don't have time right now to do so.
thanks

I would spend the extra $10 and get polycarbonate lids. I think Ventline and Maybe Jensen have replacements that wil fit your Hengs.

We installed MAXXAIR II Covers over our Vent "LIDs" when our unit was brand New! We still have the Same "Lids & Covers" and our unit is Way older than yours,plus the Same Mr Sun is beating down on ours also! Plus it takes LESS time to install the Covers than to replace the Lids! Youroo!!

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

X3. There are so many advantages to the MaxxAir II covers that they should come standard. They are easy to install, easy to clean, protect the vent lids, and provide ventilation in any weather. Asparky, I would suggest taking an extra 15 minutes per vent opening and install them over your new vent covers.
And, we will accept your thanks when you see for yourself.

Between Amazon and the Camco website you can figure it out because the Camco site tells you what years each size was used. They cost about $10 each and can be installed in about 15 minutes with a Phillips screwdriver and a long nose pliers. Our trailer sits in a pine Grove so I have a little practice.
