Is It Necessary to See Vent Hinge on RV to Determine Correct Replacement Vent Lid  


Hi. Is there any way to know what type of hinge a roof vent lid/cover will have based on model of RV? Or do I have to physically look at it? Im 2 hours away from the camper and its not easily accessible for me at this time and we just found the leak this last weekend when we left. Thanks

Good question, and the answer is you do have to physically look at the hinge of your RV's vent in order to know the cover you need. There is no way to know any specific trailer parts based just off of the year, make and model of trailer.

If you refer to the accompanying photo I added, you can see that there are four types of hinges:

A continuous hinge such as the Ventline # BVD0449-A01, 4-point hinge such as the Replacement Lid for Jensen RV Roof Vent # CAM40154, and 3-point hinge such as the Replacement Lid for Jensen RV Roof Vent with Metal Base # CAM40153.

There is also a universal option, the MaxxAir UniMaxx Universal Replacement Lid for RV and Trailer Roof Vent # MA00-335001.

So you'll simply need to compare your hinge with the ones in the photo and choose the right one based on that. I have added links to our selection of each type of replacement vent lid for you to refer to as well.
