A low branch on my street hit and broke my refrigerator cover. Since the plastic cover is near the edge and vulernable I have a feeling this has happened to others. My question is: does anyone know of a metal refer vent cover or a metal guard for this cover?

I don't know of any metal aftermarket vent covers but here are some links you could try. Perhaps they could help. Happy Trails!!

I replaced mine last year since it was 5 years old and about to shatter. You can buy them new on eBay for $.99 plus about $10 shipping.

I have not seen any metal covers except on some very old trailers. They do harden and are easily damaged with age. The covers are not all that expensise, even from RV dealers.

Problem is if you make it too rigid, you will run the risk of damage to the RV chimney stack and roof rather than an inexpensive plastic cover.
