The original 360 Siphon vent tops (the ones that turned into the wind like a weather vane) wore out. I installed the company's new design. Go to 360 Siphon Roof Vent - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery to see one of the vents. This product has no moving parts.

The install was a bit more than I anticipated. It took quite a while to get the old 360 Siphon off, the vent stack cut to the proper length and the old caulk cleaned from the roof. Once complete, I placed caulk and then EternaBond around the vent. Then I installed the vent cap and caulked around the outside lip and over the 5 hold down screws. It took about 3 hours for 2 vents. This was mainly due to me being very careful completing the various tasks.

About 6 months ago a new chassis batteries 5 WATT solar panel was installed, by Newmar factory techs. Go to 5 WATT Chassis Batteries Solar Panel - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery to see the new solar panel from the top. Notice the new panel is quite a bit smaller that the original. I guess technology improvements can keep the output the same while making the panel smaller. Go to Chassis Batteries 5 Watt Solar Panel Side View - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery to see another change. The original panel sat flat on the roof. The new panel is not only smaller, but sits above the roof by about 1 inch.
