Rv bathroom vent lid

Hi all,
Our 2006 17b's bathroom vent cover is leaking like a sieve, we've measured the opening and were thinking about replacing it but it's 10in x 10in and we haven't been able to locate one that size online.
Has anyone scraped out the old black seal trim and replaced it? If so what with?
The cover itself looks to be okay, but water is getting up under the lip on 3 edges (we've just hosed it down to see this happening).
Has anyone had this issue, and if so can offer a solution?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I used on of these on a square vent years back; worked good. There's a video on the site for installing:

The opening of the vent is actually 9 1/4 x 9 1/4 ", and the opening mounted to the roof is plastic, and we're not too confidant about drilling holes in it as it is probably not as strong as it was when new.

I highly recommend replacing the static vent with the fan retrofit kit from Escape. A few of us have followed Jon's lead and posted our installs here:

Second this. You will just be in the same place again. Since you are in BC have Escape do the install as they have a fixed price and my wiring connection was a problem.

AND if you have an opportunity to spray paint the plastic lid with Fusion (or other UV "protectant" paint, before the install.. do it.
