We waited almost a year for a replacement 700x500 Remis dome from Leisureshopdirect during 2021/2. I see this is now shown as discontinued on their website.

Are you able to say what the nature of the damage is? Unless it's catastrophic and/or not in the region that mates with the rubber seal then it maybe possible to repair. 

Your other option is to replace the whole vent assembly with a Dometic Midi Heki, which is designed for the same 700x500 roof aperture.

Hi Tim, it’s beyond repair as it’s broken off at the hinges, I’ve managed to secure it in the closed position so that it’s watertight and the van is still usable, I’m going to get it replaced with the midi heki like you say,thanks for your reply,Neil

Neil, if you’re happy to share how did the hinges break, caught by a strong gust of wind? Don’t worry to respond if you prefer not to say!

The Heki is a more robust vent I believe, especially if you opt for the lever style of opening mechanism rather than the wind-up version.

Hope the change goes smoothly, no reason to believe it won’t.

Tim

We’re not sure how it happened, it wound up ok but when we went to wind it back down it just dropped, it wasn’t particularly windy at the time, I washed the top of the van a couple of weeks before and it was ok then 🤷🏻‍�

Maybe some plastic fittings had gone brittle under UV action and failed. Good that there’s standardisation on some sizes of roof vent, so you can change to a Heki without major modification.

Post by Andrew Rooker Tue Feb 13, 2024 12:58 pm

Good afternoon I have only joined AS OF yesterday, but but I do have a worrying question my Remis  Vario 2 roof light is cracking and becoming insecure, naturally have have started the search for a new lid within the supply chain I have received a very nice and apology direct from the OEM  Remix in Germany that the supporting parts and the Remix Vario 2 is obsolescence

Can I ask what is the recommended replacement sun light which can be easily fitted to a symbol. Domestic model heki  looks ok is this a replacement approved by AS.  Andrew
