While checking the roof found my vent covers are falling apart...

I saw a few holes around the edges of my bathroom vent cover and when I touched it, it just crumbled. Damn, should I upgrade to something better or try to find a replacement.

Replacements are readily available at any RV parts counter. They are standard items.

Many of us like the MaxxAir vent covers that fit over the vents. They protect the vent covers from UV damage plus they allow you to keep your roof vents open, even in the rain. I would not be without them.

303 Protectant will help deter UV damage.

I found out from first hand experience that if the vent cover even looks like it is getting ready to crumble it needs replacing .... yesterday. The covers are only about $15 each and install in a few minutes. I replaced 2 last summer. (lost one on the road ) The one under the MaxxAir vent waited until this spring because, as Steve noted, the MaxxAir vent protects them a bit. There is also a more expensive cover made of polycarbonate that claims to be unvreakable.

You do have to remove the inside plastic frame (4 screws), the vent crank handle, and the screen (2 screws) to loosen the crank to get it out of the riser slot.
