This has probably been covered before, but since it was such a common search term it quickly became a daunting task so here I am.

We bought our first camper last winter and after it's first trip out, I am now missing 2 of my 3 vent stack caps. I was very careful where we drove, so I am think they were so brittle the wind took them. My main question is: is it okay to replace just the cap and not the base as well? If so, is any one familiar with a cap that fits this style of base? It looks different than most that I have seen that are held on by two metal tangs.

I lost 3 or 4 of the plastic replacement caps on the TC. I kept thinking a low hanging branch caught them. I was in an RV parts store and spotted a solid metal vent. Bought it , installed it 4 years ago and it is still there. It is this type. metal vent
This is from Amazon's Canadian site so I am sure you can get the same thing from the U.S.A site.

Replace all with galvanized metal one and you don't have any problem again.

I lost both vent cap tops. The plastic dried up and broke. I bought the spring clip vent caps. The little spring clips fit down the vent and hold the cap on tight. Have had mine on for about 4 years with no problems. They are cheap and don't require scraping the old base and sealant off.
