Vent covers cracked and water coming in on our 195SR

Does anyone know what size they are and where to get new ones? Small drips of water coming in from where it cracked, it cracked where it meets the vent gasket. Thanks for any help want to get new ones in before it rains again.

Sunline Fan is an unknown quantity at this point
They should just be the standard size, 14 x 14".

Definitely get that fixed before any more precip falls. You'll be able to find them at just about any RV dealer, and they should all carry them in stock because it's a common item.

It's best to take the old cover off and take it with you. I think size wise, the three major kinds will fit, but the big difference is in the hinge design. So match up the hinges and you'll be all set.

I believe they should be under $20 each, but I haven't bought one in a long time.

You may want to consider doing all of them at once because if the sun has taken its toll on the one, it may not be long before the other(s) go too.

I believe these on the '07s are new Elixir, but don't quote me on that...

You could also just add the MaxAir vent covers.

Inside the trailer remove the trim, vent crank handle and screen. Remove the two screws holding the crank to the frame, remove the crank assembly and disengage the arm from the vent cover. Now the outside.
The hinge is similar to fingers on a hand, curled toward the palm. The "finger" on each end is bent further than the others and winds up outside the long pin on the vent frame. Simple bend this finger up with a pair of needle nose pliers and slide the vent toward you.
Reverse to install the new one.

Have at it,
Teach
