Casita fitting is crumbling...can you identify it?

Hi, I *think* the plumbing vent on my Casita is crumbling. Can someone please tell me:
a) what the piece is and
b) where I can get a replacement?

I live in Canada but can order from the US if need be. Thanks in advance for your help.

** EDIT **
There are louvres that should be covering that hole but they have broken away.

Check Amazon first. Is that a water tank fill connection or a fresh water hose hookup connection?

Also, Casita probably can sell you the part.


Basically, the plastic parts on the outside of the trailer wear out, get brittle, crack and so on.

Bill, thanks for the reply. I should've mentioned in my original post that there SHOULD be louvres covering that hole but they have crumbled away.

OK, that is a battery compartment vent cover:

$2.19 here in the USA.

Or with the inside piece as well, $7.91

You have to be careful separating the inner assembly from the outer louvered cover if they are caulked or butyl taped together. Otherwise you’ll have to buy both the cover and the assembly. I got away with just the cover but had to take my time.

Battery Box???

You didn't mention the year/model for your Casita.

I have a 17' Spirit Deluxe and the battery compartment is on the port side in the back lower corner. The access door has a vent in it and there also is a vent to the battery compartment from the underneath corner of the Casita. My water tank fill is in the back toward the starboard side (in-between the spare tire and the tail light) and my "city water" connection is in the middle of the port side below the belly band toward.

Your picture shows the vent in the middle of the starboard side of the Casita above the belly band. Based on the picture, the caulk doesn't appear to be a "factory quality" installation.......

If your Casita's layout is similar to mine (which doesn't have such a vent), your vent is probably under/behind your sink. Could it be a plumbing revent? If it is a plumbing revent, then the vents that Bill referenced should be fine.

I have a 2006 sd17 - my city water connection is further forward & lower. My house battery is on the other side.

I think that might be a city water connection. Look inside under your sink - I bet you can see the other side and it should be more obvious.

I really doubt it is a battery vent.

I would post on https://www.casitaforum.com/invboard/forums/ -- you will get an answer there.

IT would be helpful to know your model year.

It might be a modification, but since it appears to be under the sink I am guessing it is the city water inlet.

Given the location and the missing louvers, I believe it's actually a sink vent. Look under the sink cabinet and see if there is a pipe running to it from the sink drain. I don't remember if my Casita had that or not but my vintage Campster does. Sometimes they vent through the roof like the bathroom.

Best pic I can come up with at the moment, but just above the wheel well at about 2 O'clock is a vent on my Escape 17B. It vents the grey water tank.

Ah, yes, it's my sink that's on the other side of that vent. Battery compartment is on left rear of trailer under bench seat.

More specific info

Sorry for not posting this earlier: the trailer is a 2001 16' Casita Freedom Deluxe. It has no bathroom and no roof vents aside from the one for the fan.
