Vent Lid hinge type

Would anyone know which type of hinge is used on the standard 14 x 14 vent lid on a 2002 vintage T-2363?

I see three types, Ventline & new Elixir (since 1994), Jensen, Old Elixir.
This site has a a good picture Vent Lids for Sale



I just lost a cover somewhere on the trip from a campground in Bar Harbor to the campground in Wells, Maine where I am now. I removed the inside vent frame and screen, forgot to take a picture of the hinge, and duct taped a piece of heavy plastic around 3 sides with the rear held by the arm that would hold the cover. I was thinking of ordering a lid online if I knew which type hinge I had but I can't get to the roof.

Gene do not know 2002 but in 2004 both of my Sunlines had the Ventline type. Slide it all the way across and bend the end tab in to stop if from falling off.

Looked like this on the camper 1/2.


Sorry I do not have the cover hinge pic

Here's a recent thread on vent lids. You do have the newer Ventline/Elixir type.

Thanks John and Henry, I apreciate the help. I am going to order two and they should be on the way to my house while I am. This spring when I did the usual dicor thing on the roof the vent frames looked good but I didn't look that hard at the lid! With no rain in the forcast I should make it home Wednesday ok.

I just wanted to post a followup. I found my local RV dealer had the vent lid in stock and the price, with sales tax, was less than online with shipping. I picked up a new lid as soon as I got home Wednesday. Thanks to John and Henry I knew which hinge I needed. It only took a few minutes to put it on this morning as the rain started. Tomorrow I will replace the other vent lid as a precaution.

Thanks guys, your help made this a quick and painless job.
