Quick question about roof vents. Manual crank style.

WOW. Great forum. Tons of information. Glad I found y'all. I have a quick question about the roof vent for my 2003 Sunseeker Forest River LE 2100. I took a quick look and didn't see where this had been asked before (although I am sure it has been) ..... but I was hoping to save myself 2 days of forum browsing and see if anyone can just help me out real quick. Thanks in advance.

In the bathroom in rear of the camper, there is a manually cranked open/closed vent over the fan with a plastic cap on the roof. The cap has disintegrated and blown off. Anyone know where I can find a replacement? Part number? Can I replace just the plastic cap or does the entire assembly need replaced?

Camping World has just the caps with the manual crank for about $20. I just replaced the entire thing on my '87 enclosed car trailer for about $45 for the assembly and another $15 for the sealant and dicor. Depends on the status of the entire thing.

Thank you folks so much. Took me longer to take the pictures and type the question than it did to get solid, helpful answers. Life is good. THANKS again.

Those vent caps deteriorate over time due to sun and the elements. On our last rig, we had to replace one and called an RV store when we were out of state. All they needed was the old cap so they could match the particular type of hinge that was on the cap. I took off the old cap, took it to them and they had me a match in seconds. I don't remember the cost, but it was probably $30.00 or less.

Again, thank you all so much. I ordered this one: One-piece Vent - White - Heng's Industries 71311-C1G2 - Vents - Camping World

I'm pretty sure I can make it work. I will report back after installation and hopefully it can help someone else down the road.

While you are up there on the roof install a (MaxAir Vent Cover).Do a Search on this Site,one of the (Best) mods you can do! Many benefits adding the covers! Youroo!!

I will second the suggestion for a maxxair vent cover...just installed a couple myself....very easy to do and it will protect the other cover and prevent the sun from beating it up, will protect it from stormy weather, hail, etc...and best of all will allow you to leave that vent open and not worry about rain coming in. Greatly increases ventilation. Only thing is, judging by where you have it parked you may no longer have the clearance to park it there once a Maxxair is installed....loks awfully tight.

X3 on the MaxxAir! Took longer to gather the tools, climb up the ladder, climb down the ladder and put the tools away than it did to install the vent cover!
