On my 2014 17B, I only used the door of the Norcold part 620505PW. I did not have to replace the frame. The door blew away and the Norcold door was a perfect fit into the existing frame.

Right, only lost the door. I was just pointing out that the dimensions mentioned by a website selling the door were incorrect. They listed the cutout dimensions (the size of the hole you have to cut to mount the door frame) as the door dimensions.

We removed the frame from the fiberglass. It was broken anyway. The measurements of the opening in the fiberglass are just shy of what American RV claims their vent is. I'm thinking it's got to be the same part; looks identical. I contacted ETI and they will sell the replacement part for a reasonable $35, but shipping to NC is $45 USD. Hope their feelings won't be hurt if we try to buy it elsewhere. Thanks to those who gave advice!

Norcold part 620505PW received and measured to be EXACTLY the same as the original part. So this will work! Next step is to remove the hardened glue and caulk from the fiberglass (that secured the frame). Any ideas what works without any damage to the fiberglass?
Mob2014, thanks to your tip we saved $50 on the part & shipping......thanks!
