Is the Replacement Metal Trailer Roof Vent Dome Assembly Galvanized and Does it Include the Bracket


is it galvanized steel? does it come with the metal bracket that my old plastic one is riveted to ? or do i have to purchase a rivet gun and rivets ?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the metal replacement dome, # BV0534-00, is galvanized for corrosion resistance. There is a slot spot welded into the underside of the lid that the operator arm attaches to, see photo. No other parts are included with the replacement metal dome, and you do not need to rivet the bracket to the underside of the lid.

The Replacement Operator w/ Knob, # BV0115-04, is the correct operator arm and attaches to the slot in the underside of the lid with the rivet head that is attached to the operator arm and a metal clip that is included with the operator arm.

It sounds like your plastic vent was similar to the old style vent cover, # BV0554-01. The metal cover will work as a replacement for the older style plastic roof vents with a slotted metal bracket.

I produced a short video showing the metal roof vent lid, a complete roof vent assembly and an old style plastic roof vent lid to help you select the correct part, see link.
