Here...just the lid. Easy to install ...just need needle nose pliers & maybe a scredriver. Like a 10 minute job.
If you need to replace the bathroom fan...the second link is it.
MaxxAires and Fan-Tastics are great upgrades if you have power in the "hole" .

Here's a good little video on the subject. Individual installs may vary a bit but it gives you a good idea of what is involved.

I have replaced these before (on another trailer). I just forgot to take a picture of the hinge type that are on mine. I am 4 hours away from the RV so I was hoping someone would know what type they put on these units. I might have to buy two different types and return the one that it wasn't. I will also be buying the max air covers for extra protection. Luckily I had covered the loft mattress or it would have likely been ruined. I don't want to take that chance again.

Thanks for all the replies so far.
Jeff

We put Max Air covers over all ours. Besides protecting the cover you can have them open when it is raining. All of ours broke in 6 months and my dealer said he thought they changed suppliers and they are junk. Anyway don't have to worry now. When travels start be safe.

I believe that cover is the correct one. Not certain completely tho.

I stopped by my RV dealer today by appointment and bought a vent cover for my 2014 Rockwood Ultra Lite fifth wheel. Apparently my vent type is the Elixir type with a somewhat shorter hinge. It slid right off the frame and right back on, so easy, after some interior disassembly.



They had a chart on display at the store of the different hinges which I thought could be helpful to those of us who aren't sure what style hinge we have if we have to replace it. Attached a photo of the chart.



I actually have Camco vent covers -- which are the cheaper version of Maxxair -- on two of my three vents. Included a photo of one of them. I got a deal at an RV store in Wyoming when passing through.


Also wanted to mention that if you needed something done on your RV and wanted to drop it off before things really open up, Shady Maple RV has staff with time to work on RV's. It will be a madhouse to get service once things open up. There's a great food market next door (also called Shady Maple) so you could combine a trip to one of the best supermarkets around with very fresh meats and produce. If you're not too far away, it's a great spot to get essential service things done before we all get on the road again. They do it by appointment so there's no big public gathering.

Elixir Vent lid is unbreakable and comes in the size and color you want.

A little longer than ten minutes. You need a Phillips screwdriver to take off the windup mechanism before you go onto the roof and restore it when you're down.

Don't forget the required ladder either.

I don't think so

See this web page. You can gain two pieces of information.
The lid is polycarbonate. It will be "unbreakable" as shipped but in a year or two of outdoor exposure it will turn yellowish and in another year or two it will be so weak and brittle that a pine cone will go right through it. Polycarbonate simply isn't stable to the ultraviolet component of sunlight.
If it were really "unbreakable" it would have a lifetime guarantee. I saw no mention of one on this web page.
