Vent Lid Cover

Unread postby dudedog » Sun Sep 23, 2018 10:08 pm

My roof vent lid cover blew off the other day. I have replaced it before and I thought without any problems. I am finding many different ones and so far the RV parts places cannot help me. I can not find this easy in the files. I have the part no but the ones that come up in a search are on eBay and mobility for $85 for the lid only. It claims to be unique to Winnebago. All other lids found are $10 to 20$. Can anyone help me find a cheaper lid that will work? The hinge is metal and round. Will a pre-1995 universal lid work? Thanks for any help. I need to purchase this before a rain comes. They say it is 15 X 15 and all the others are 14 X 14. The part no is 055218 01 000. For way less than $85 I could replace the whole unit with the fan and all. I would rather just find the lid for a reasonable price.

It was a Winnebago exclusive when I first bought my RV..... I just epoxied it to repair it at the time, knowing I wanted to replace it with a real fan unit down the road. I have since installed a Maxxair unit, the one with the integrated rain hood, and never looked back...... what a great unit.

Too bad you are not close by, you could have picked up my old repaired one for free. I'm in Canada, it's a hassle shipping to the USA, but I'm sure someone will chime in with a used one.

Cheers, Scott

The fan went out in mine, and I replaced the whole thing for $30.


Ventline RV Roof Vent White w/ 12 Volt Fan, Putty & Screws

It was a very close match. I had to cut the corners of the roof hole to make it fit.




If I was doing it today, I would spend the money and put in a full "Maxxair" vent. I have a friend who has one on his new Revel, and it's quite nice.



They have 10 settings, the lowest pulls very little current but still moves air, can be exhast or intake, and the newest models have a built in retractable rain cover so you can keep it open on the road, or in the rain.

After replacing my whole vent, fan, lid and all, I added a vent cover.


This is the one I used. You can find it or something like it at any RV shop.



Camco Vent Cover

https://www.amazon.com/Camco-Cleaning-Aerodynamic-Included-40431/dp/B000BUQODG/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1538700964&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=RV+vent+cover&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/Camco-Cleaning-Aerodynamic-Included-40431/dp/B000BUQODG/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1538700964&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=RV+vent+cover&psc=1



This not only protects the lid, it allows for it to be open while driving, in the rain, etc. When parked off season, I leave my lid open 24/7 to keep the heat and humitiy out from Sun and Rain.


Cheep protection. Also would protect your new "investment grade" lid.

Hi Mark,

I had one of those covers for years..... it was great. As you say, you can leave the vent open and never have moisture issues inside the rv. It is a reasonable alternative to the Maxxair deluxe. Cheers, Scott
