Holding tank roof top vents

I have a 2009 Damon Astoria, 38'. I was recently on the roof lubricating my TV antenna. I noticed I have two vent caps that appear to be almost three inches in width. They have small solar panels on their top. I touched one and it started to crumble. Sun rot I suspect. Does anyone know where I can get replacements.

I had never seen caps with solar panels on them. Always used just a plain old cap.

Me too, these things seem like a gimmick to me and not worth the money.

You probably have this brand of vent cap. I too think its just a gimmick, but you can repalce them with identical ones if you like.
