Vent Covers

Anyone know if there is a specific brand on vents used in the Sunset Trail line. I have two vents, one in the bathroom and one in the bedroom and both of the covers are crazed, brittle and breaking. My research tells me you must know brand to buy replacements.
There again I am thinking of replacing the units as a whole because if something made for the top of an RV cannot withstand exposure to sun light for more than a couple years, it may just be an inferior product.

Check the hinge type to determine which cover is needed.

Thanks, I have to wait for the weather to improve, but I want to be ready when it does.

I replaced mine a few years ago and they were Ventline. I found replacement covers in stock at the local Camping World. Not sure if the newer rigs carry the same brand however.

Suggestion - get the Camping World vent covers. We have them on all vents - lets you leave them open (or cracked) when it rains. We left bathroom one cracked all winter.

You can leave the original, weathered vent alone and have an added cover for protection.

Yes I plan to add the covers that allow the vent to remain open, but I am sure I will also replace the lids as they are very brittle.
