Yes but the new one is going to go the same route as the old one unless
you do something else!!
My tiny brass hinge fix is forever and takes about an hour IF you still have
your flapper!

Happy Trails!

Well I guess if I lose my vent cover all I need to do is keep an eye on the side of the highway for a replacement. LOL!!!

I used brazing rod as I have some, but most folks don't, so a pc of coat hanger will work just fine and won't break off like the plastic ones do. Eliminates the need for additional hinges.

This is why we use a checklist for setup and teardown - sometimes CRS hits and we forget stuff.

I lost the locking tabs on my exhaust vent on my previous tt. The flap was still there. The mod I did was to make a 4" finger out of scrap plexiglass. I removed a lower mounting screw from the vent assy and mounted the finger there. The finger pivoted up to hold the flap closed. Was easier to operate than the two locking tabs.
