Some of those caps have a screw that needs to be removed. If there is a small hole on top filled with caulk, dig into that to find the screw head.

I have already had to replace 1 of my vent caps, and my unit is only 4 years old. The sun really can do a number on those puppies.

I found vent caps and the bases at a local RV dealer for a couple dollars each. I just replaced the cap, not the base.

Now is the time to get a 360deg. Vent cap. Basically it is a free spinning venturi type vent that removes odors from the tanks. I only replaced my black tank cap.
