Where to find sealed battery box?

I am trying to find a sealed battery box that has a black vent or even just the black vent. GiantRV.com lists one but says they won't have them until mid summer. That's no good for me - I need it soon to finish my project. Needs to be for a single group 24 battery.

I know this has to be readily available since I just saw one on a Rockwood 5-er today. I am getting the dealer to get a quote from the factory, but even if they can get it, I know it will be a premium price. I saw the exact same one in white at another dealer but there is no manufacturer's name on it that I could see so that makes it harder to track down.

The real problem I have is finding an exterior vent in black since our TT has all black exterior fittings and trim.

Anyone here know where I could find one??

These are used on virtually every 5th wheel trailer, and should be common in-stock items for an RV parts store, however they do not have an air-tight seal.
I found what you ask about though: Black, sealed battery box with vent hose.
Now that is a lot of money IMO. I would buy a white one and spray-paint it black with the new spray paint for plastics.

You're worried about the HIDDEN parts being black or just the vent ?

I would think just about any rv store, camping world, amazon, would have it..

Finding just a black vent has proven to be almost hopeless. I even tried marine stores and online vendors.

But, I walked onto an RV dealers lot a couple of days ago and spotted a 5th wheel with all black trim. A Rockwood I think. I discovered it had the elusive black vent as well as a black box and pipe. It has to be an MTS Products one but they only show white and polar white all over the internet.

I custom ordered a replacement vent, box and hose for the Rockwood and I am all good now. Whew. With all the RVs coming out now with black trim and fittings, I am surprised there's no vents readily available.

Thanks for the comments.
