How To Replace Damaged Roof Vent Cover Using Replacement Dome Assembly # BVD0449-A03  


How do you replace cover, how does it come off?


Expert Reply:

To remove the damaged vent cover, remove the connection to the actuating strut, so the cover can tilt all the way upwards. To do this, you will need to remove the interior screen, the knob and the interior trim piece. Then, remove the two screws that hold the actuating arm in place, which will allow the actuating arm to be slid out of its track on the cover. Tilt the cover (or what is left of the cover) straight up so that it is at a 90 degree angle to the roof of the trailer. Then, push the lid straight down to free the cover from the hinge.

The new cover would install by reversing the process. Hold the replacement cover at a 90 degree angle to the roof, and line up the hinge pins on the cover to the hinges on the vent. Pull the cover straight upwards until the cover locks into place, then reassemble.

I produced a short video that will provide a run-through of the process.
