Your right Donna . I use it all the time . Great stuff . The problem is the plastic is breaking so ,it's dried out and he will just keep having problems . Best to replace lid, vent and coat the new one with 303 constantly or the fusion paint so it will last longer . Wish they made the covers you can get for 14x14 standard vents . I would of liked that for 9 in vent . I used to put the covers on all my 14x14 vents and that really helped for longevity . Pat

Indeed you are right Doug . I checked Amazon and they have 15x22 lid . He needs to make sure the lid is that size . The frame could be a different size which I believe ours was . They charge a lot for the lid though .A few dollars more you can have the whole vent for 89 .00. I am now thinking what we had was a different size . I can't remember but it was a little bigger . It was on a 1992 . I think I had 18x24 if my memory is not failing me . Anyway he has the information . Thanks for the resources . Pat

Yes, I linked to three sources of the specific part for the dome (if Todd has the size right):

Amazon.com
RVPlus.com
... and there appear to be lots more. Still not really cheap, but available.
... but Todd also wants to replace at least part of the operating mechanism.

Since the domes in this size (or anything other than 14"x14") are quite expensive, and the mechanisms hard to find, then buying a whole unit and pulling the needed parts - as Todd mentioned at the start - might end up as the way to go.

We needed to replace the LID ONLY on our 5.0; ordered this LID ONLY from Tweetys.com. The crank did not need replacement.

Heng's 90007-C1 Roof Vent Lid, 13" X 20", White

Cost: $42.32

hope this helps....

I am de-winterizing my trailer this spring and have an issue. I have a 2013 Escape 5.0 and the escape hatch/vent lid over my bed has cracked and more are forming...

I also noticed that the crank mechanism is also starting to separate at the rivets on the inside. It had leaked slightly when I cleaned it last year and assumed it was just a bad gasket, so it’s a good thing I had a cover over it for the winter!!!

I looked and found out that it is made by Heng Industries. I am not sure about the size and have contacted ETI to see if they can provide the information I need. I think it’s a 15x22. I am willing to buy a new vent assembly and cannibalize it for the replacement parts as I don't want to break the roof seals and gaskets.

Has anyone ever replaced the plastic lid and handle mechanism... it seems to me I should be able to get parts easily, but can seem to find directions. YouTube has some good info but not of these type vents from Hengs.

I have a temporary fix on it until I can get the parts I need. When repaired, I am going to put a MaxAir cover on it to help protect the new one. The Georgia Sun is brutal on the plastics... I have already replaced the small round ones that are on the waste tank vents!

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks....

Todd

Great Info everyone... I put a temp repair on the plastic hatch and sealed the cracks with a windshield RTV just to keep the bed dry. Its rubbery and very flexible, and wont use the hatch until i have it replaced. I am leaning on the advice of changing it out all together.

How did you all soften the roof sealant at each fastener and remove it around the hatch without damaging the fiberglass?

I have sent a message to Escape and will share when I get an answer from them. I think the best way to get the size of the hatch will be to remove the inside trim ring and measure the cutout in the fiberglass.

I am really particular about things and with the money I have in this "investment" I want to keep it in pristine condition.

Though I have a cover that I use for long term storage, I saw in camping world a cover that only covers the top of a camper just for the reason of UV damage to plastic parts. I have also noticed that that is where the camper chalks up first requiring constant polishing and waxing. Anything will help since I have to keep it outside. I had the same problems with my boat...

Sounds like a great plan . Pat

Hi cpaharley! Hope all is well with you since I last saw you!

Here is the link to the cover you requested....

ADCO 36030 18' to 24' RV Roof Cover | RVCovers.com

Looks like a good fit for part time storage. I had the one custom made by the company that ETI recommended (Calmark), and its a great cover. Only It is hard to put on by myself. I just want a quick on off cover for the summers.
