Replacing the Bathroom Skylight 86 Bigfoot

Hey Gang. I recently started scraping away the layers of gunk used over the years to seal the bathroom skylight on my new to me 86. As I started, I realized how brittle and crappy the current one is and wondered about replacing it.

I haven't been able to find anything online in 9" by 9" so far. The current one winds open which is nice for airflow.

Has anyone replaced this before or know of a manufacturer that makes these?

I searched for "9x9 rv roof vent" and found the Heng's 17511-C1G Escape Hatch/Exit Vent, 9" x 9" - Colonial White on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Hengs-17511-C.../dp/B0027XEKMW

The rough opening is 9 1/4" x 9 1/4".

Hi John. Thanks so much! I did a search on Amazon too but obviously did not put in the right key words. Stoked as I needed a win on this one since my furnace doesn't want to cooperate and is being stubborn.

Just realize that vent is pretty crappy, read the reviews.

My 1995 came with a standard-sized (14" hole I think but I'm not positive) passive vent. It was pretty easy to remove it and install a powered fan by taking the 12-v off of the bathroom light.

You might consider enlarging the hole in your rood and installing a Fantastic or Maxx Air powered vent.
