Default Roof vent cover

I just ordered the cover for my front a/c, and while up on top, noticed the big vent cover for
the kitchen vent/fan thing is bad too. looks pretty big and sorta one of a kind. Anyone know where to get a replacement? Thanks, Pete

If it’s a fantastic fan, you can get the cover(dome) from Dometic.
I think the domes are covered for life, call Dometic they may send you one just for the cost of shipping.

It's not the regular 14" square vent, the big one above the sink. Ours has a cover in the ceiling you have to remove. Looks like a small radar dish on top (the cover on top of the roof)

Lots of guys love the cool a matics,and i'm sure the race shop boys can build you something.
But the real deal is those vents leak air like a screen door.
My suggestion is to just buy a new fantastic vent and install it right in the same hole,it will fit like the hole in a donut,perfect everytime!


The FV will have a see through cover which will let lots of light in and it will seal much better than the cool a matic.


But,if you remove the cool a matic save it,someone here will buy the motor or something from you.

I suggest removing and tossing. It's a huge air leak for one thing because it doesn't have any kind of a moving cover. Wasps love it. I got rid of mine and replaced with a skylight. A regular Fantastic fan will also fit into that hole.
