What's is Standard size of a crank up roof vent?

Plastic cap was damaged by hail. I assume I will need to replace the entire vent? Or can I just replace plastic vent cap? Thanks.

Typically a standard of 14"x14" roof opening. But there are tolerances and non standard sizes.

Have you considered putting a roof vent cover on? You won't have to worry about the hail anymore and you can leave the roof vent open in the rain.

Very true on the roof vent cover. Wags2237 check for the name of manufacture and model of the vent. Should be labeled somewhere on the vent.

Once you have the make / model of the vent you should be able get a replacement cover for the existing vent without replacing the complete unit.

If you have a really old unit (20+ years) you might be looking at complete vent replacement.

CW carries replacement covers but there about 3 different hinge systems.
You need to dtermine manufacturer or take pics.

Roof vents

Just a side note add on. I have MaxxAir covers on all of my vents. Two crank up covers deteriorated and were falling in pieces. Didn't want to remove the MaxxAirs so I tried replacing the busted covers from the inside. You can actually do it, pretty easy. If have covers like MaxxAirs, or, if you don't like crawling around on the roof, do it from the inside.

I had MaxxAir covers on my last RV and am going to put them on all the vents in our new one before our big trip in a few weeks. They look better and like someone else said, you can leave the vent open and/or the fan on without worrying about rain, etc. You can get them in clear, white, smoke or black, depending on how much light you want to let in. Someone mentioned removing them, but you shouldn't have to remove them to get to the vent. They attach to the metal curb around the vent and have hinges on one side and a locking pin assembly on the other side. To clean inside them or get to the vent, just pull the pin and swing the cover up and open.

Most of the vents today are 14"x14", but there are 6 - 8 different hinges. Easiest way to replace is to take the bad one off and take it to an RV dealer to match it up with the correct replacement. You can go by brand because sometime they update them and a new model won't fit and older model and vice versa. Then, as suggested earlier, put a vent cover on.


Good Luck
