Removing sewer rain guard (or entire pipe!?)

I am trying to overlay a large sheet of aluminum over the damaged roof of my 2019 sport FB.

The sewer vent has a rain/debris guard (I assume that is what it is?). I got the actual guard plate off, but can’t quite see how to get the “leg assembly” off without cutting it. Clearly there is a seam between these two parts. Not sure if it’s glued, screwed, press-fit, ....?

Any ideas?

Would really like to avoid removing the mess of caulk (though now that I think about it, I might end up needing to do that so that I can get the new skin right against the pipe...)

Carefully clear off the caulk at the base, and you may find fasteners that hold it down. Try a thin, flexible putty knife with rounded corners to avoid gouging aluminum. Then unscrew the fasteners and pull it off.

Ok. Had a feeling it might be something like that. I think that removing the caulk is going to be necessary to get the new skin to sit flat anyway.

Rmkrum you were spot on. Scraped it and found 4 phillips metal screws. Easy!

Now the hardest part: removing the Zamp prewired housing....not seeing a good way to free it from the wiring.

Can’t help on the Zamp housing. Don’t have one on my Airstream. Glad to help with the vent!

I just replaced one of mine that was basically flat out gone, and I have one more to do. I’m replacing with the pivoting “snorkel” type vents to help pull gasses out of the tanks.

I had a huge glob of caulking to clear off to get to the screws. Airstream must buy the stuff in 55 gallon drums and put it on with a shovel!

Yes they do get it in drums they dispense it with a hose. I saw them doing it at the factory.
