coach roof vents
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:40:03 PM »
I have noticed that some WB's mine included have vents in the coach roof, was this a later upgrade, or did some owner just cut holes in them? I have taken the old ones on mine out, and have stripped the wooden spacers/supports off as well, as they were badly cracked, and damaged beyond repair. The problem I now have, is trying to find a suitable replacement that will take the shape of the coach roof. I love the Vetus Mushroom Vents, but some how I don't think they will work. http://www.gaelforcemarine.co.uk/38031/Vetus-Mushroom-Ventilators.html?referrer=FROOGLE&gclid=CKiWsIGb5r4CFSGWtAodBkQAGA.

Hi Clint,

I, WB 122, replaced the the vent with the Vetus mushroom ventilator. I am happy with it. In closed position it even holds your  weight in case you step on it.

Hello Barend, did yours still have the wooden surrounds, that made a flush mount for the vents? I found cracks in both of mine, and they were not worth saving, so l had to take them off. so now l am left with the problem of trying to source/make new mounts, or somehow build a flat surface onto the holes, before l cam mounts new vents.
