Replacing roof vent....

When I bought my pop up the roof vent was broken, and I think I found a replacement on ebay (just have to measure mine to verify size)..

Are these as easy as they look?
From the looks of it, I just unscrew it, take it out, put some sealant on the new one and screw it back in...

Any helps appreciated!

Joey, That's about all there is to it!

Clean up the old surface as best as you can before placing the new RTV.

Most of the roof vents in pop ups are the 14" square variety. If that's what you have, and what you got on Fleabay, it should pretty much drop in. Is the vent powered or non-powered?

Camping world near me has Fan Tastic vent fans for $83. Best you can buy. I have installed 3 over the years and have one to install now. 3 speeds, starts on opening and closes when wet. Hardest part is getting ols calk off the roof.
