I've been working on my 1983 13' Burro
for 10 years and have eliminated all leaks
except an insidious one coming in near (or through) the warped 9" x 9" roof vent in heavy rain.
I'd like to replace this old 9" vent and am afraid to upgrade to the modern standard 14" x 14" vent/fan size, since the fiberglass near the vent is thin. Also, I don't want to complicate things by trying to build a frame to support a larger vent as described in some Burro
threads on the FGRV forum.
Unfortunately, all I can find to replace the small 9" x 9" vent is a model of questionable durability, with minimal overhang to keep water from entering!
... I see this marketed as the "ELIXIR 9X9 MINI-VENT with 7/8Ē garnish" and "Heng's 18511C1G White 9" Mini Vent", available here:
Does anyone know of higher-quality options for small vents?
Basically, I'd like one with a bigger overhang, made from plastic that isn't going to disintegrate after 5-10 years.
I've exhausted every option, except this ingenious forum. Please help!
