Vent cover source/

Anyone know a source for the replacement exterior exhaust vent cover, now used on the 2nd gen 19'? I broke the upper tabs off of mine [just the exterior cover] and I'm not trusting my glue/caulk job. My google searches all turn up the old version and plenty of others but not this style. Anyone know the brand name? Here's a pic:

''I have this on my wish list at the moment. It appears to be the correct measurement but since I have not pulled the old vent I am not sure.
The main reason I am interested in it is it is not supposed to yellow.

Yup, that's the product all right. All I need is the outside shell, the cutaway part in the Amazon pic. Now at least I have the brand-name to follow up. A good start!

I imagine you will run into the same situation as people who lost the refrigerator vent. They have to buy the vent and frame as no one sells the parts separately.

I know; that's what I'm thinking too. I may just have to beef up my glue/caulk job substantially.

Timely post, one of those little items that I haven't gotten around to doing. I looked for one at Camping World but they only have the old style.

Love the vendor sense of humor on Amazon.ca Hmm, do I choose the one for $52.31 or the one for $129.02?

The newer Escapes have bright white gelcoat and the vent looks great. The older trailers have an off white gelcoat tint. The JR vent cover listed is bright white which I put on my 2014 E-21. If I were to replace the vent again I would get a black JR vent to match the windows and service lights. The bright white vent cover really stands out on the older trailers. Also on my trailer I had to make the vent hole in the trailer slightly taller.

Eddie,
You could always shoot it with the Fusion paint. The color Glen uses Dover White matches the old gel coat pretty well. On the newer trailers you need to use the Gloss White to get a close match.

It is on the list to paint some of my plastic items Dover white. I had a time finding some Dover white but located some last fall. If you have a classic trailer the color difference is not noticeable by itself. I was parked next to three 2017-18 E-21's at Green Eggs and Ham and the color difference was quite noticeable. I'm not sure when ETI went with the bright white gelcoat.
Back to the vent. The hood snaps on but it needs to be sealed to the trailer to prevent leaks. I think it tells you that in the install instructions

I ran black past my wife, no sale. I'm sure bright white, which will be a real improvement over my broken yellowish one will be a great improvement. If not, I already have a can of Dover White.
