Replacement Vent Lid

Hi, I was up on the roof of my 2009 Sabre 31RETS-6 today cleaning the bedroom vent lid, this is located under a MaxxAir vent cover. When I got the cover off, the lid was very brittle and cracked in places. It appears that the lid is riveted to the hinge system.

Their is a number on the lid, but so far I haven't managed to track down a replacement. The number is ELIXIR ANS 726 AS13 (I think).

Is it possible to replace just the lid, and not the complete fitting, as I really don't want to compromise the sealing around the unit. Also does anyone know where a replacement can be bought?

Thanks

Any good rv dealer with a decent amount of parts will have a replacement.

The number you see is not a part number but I think a safety standard number.

Go to your local dealer and pick one up.

Yes you can just get a lid.

Thanks both for the very quick replies, sorry I wasn't quite as quick getting back to you. After I posted I did see the Camco unit that davel posted in Camping World for $24.99. Needless to say I ordered the one off Amazon.

Thanks Both

Update

Finished the install, all went well. Hardest part was cleaning up the dead bugs and sawdust that fell out when I removed the screen and inside fittings!
