Hi, welcome to the forums.
The Fantastic cover is very easy to change, just 4 phillips screws holding it in place. Crank up the actuator (the thing that makes the vent go up) about halfway from inside the trailer. Then go on the roof with the cover and a screwdriver. Unscrew the remains of the hinge, and slide the cover off the slide for the actuator. You'll see a slightly larger spot in the slot, the little plastic knob will come out through that. Slide the new slide onto the actuator, then attach the 4 screws back to the vent. Crawl off the roof, and verify the vent goes up and down as intended.
Relax and enjoy your new vent cover.
I did this this morning, to install a thermostat and rain sensor, total project time was 45 minutes, including schlepping the ladder.
