1992 Minnie Winnie Vent Covers

We just bought a 1992 Winnebego Minnie Winnie 27 ft WF527RQ. I can not remove the vent assembly in the bathroom ceiling. It's sealed tight to the roof and there are no screws on the roof. I removed the 1 inch screws that hold the inside screen and there are no screws that hold the assembly in the hole. Does anyone know how to get the old assembly out?
Thank you, Chris

You'll have to remove the caulk around the hatch on the roof. The screws are likely buried in Dicor self-leveling caulk or even Eternabond tape.

Thank you. I watched that video. Great demonstration of how to swap out ventsm. Our problem is that the 1992 Minnie Winnie has 3 vents and they all 'appear' to be glued directly to the metal roof. There is no caulking or tape covering a flange with screws in the vents like all the videos show. I think I'm just going to have to take a knife and cut through the sealant between the vent and the metal roof and pry the vent up. Any Winnebego owns out there with the same issue?

The screws are countersunk into the vent flange and most likely the heads are covered with sealant. I had to dig the heads on mine free with a pick when I replaced my non-operating one. It's a good thing it was sealed well around the perimeter, as whoever installed it originally put no sealer between the flange and the roof.
