First, you’ll want to remove the old vent by carefully unscrewing it from the roof. Once it’s removed, clean the area around the opening and make sure it’s free of any debris or old sealant.

Next, you’ll want to apply a new layer of sealant around the opening where the vent will go. Make sure to use a high-quality sealant that is specifically designed for RV roofs to ensure a watertight seal.

Then, carefully place the new vent into the opening and secure it with screws. Finally, apply a generous amount of sealant around the edges of the vent to ensure it’s properly sealed to the roof.

It’s important to make sure the vent is securely sealed to prevent any leaks or water damage to your RV.

I hope these tips help you with your RV maintenance! Let me know if you have any other questions.
