I would agree there these are worth the money and you can get the camco ones for around $20

Youtube has some great video's for installing the vents and the Max air vents as well as a lot of RV repairs. Good stuff on there.

sdkammeyer,

Welcome to the forum! I like that rig! From appearances it's been well cared for.

See folks, why I *love* promoting this wonderful place? A new member comes in with a problem/question and look how many folks quickly jumped in to help.

It's a veritable Forest River Brain Trust I'm tellin' ya!

Thanks Weezer, and thanks again everybody!!

The part came in today, and since there's no time like the present, I hauled a bucket of tools up on the roof and got the job done.

For the "next guy" who has the same problem, let me answer my own original questions NO, there is not simply a snap on plastic cover to replace the one that fell apart Since its riveted to the metal frame that cranks up and down, the entire unit needs to be replaced. Nothing is simple these days....... but this job wasn't too bad. Of course I am a DIY kinda guy, and save a penny whenever possible, so I ordered the vent only, without the fan. The fan would have cost me an extra $50. (crazy right?) So with a little ingenuity, and some muscle, I was able to crack the spot welds on the old setup, and move the fan over to the new gig. Only had to drill a couple holes and do a little re-wiring. Definitely worth the extra 30 minutes of labor to save me $50 on the parts bill.

As far as the Maxx air .... dang those things look awesome BUT, unfortunately I cannot have one. The barn where she resides when not in use only gives me a couple spare inches of clearance as it is. (That's with everything closed up and cranked down).... so I had to skip it. Good thing I checked clearance before ordering and installing, or this post might not have such a positive attitude

Thanks again for all the help. If anyone has any questions now, or down the road, I would be more than happy to help out!!

The first picture here is the old vent on the left, with the missing plastic cover, after I stripped the fan off of it. And the new one is on the right, half way through fan installation.

Just finished replacing my vent cover. The replacement cover cost me $18.00 for parts and about 30 minutes of my time. Have to say thanks to "YOUTUBE" for directions.
