SERVICE TIP: RPI now offers two different Air Vent Bellows Assemblies -- RPI Part #RCB100 and RCB089. There are two different styles of assemblies -- the diaphragm style and the bellows style. Here's the difference.
Currently, the RPI RCB089 and the OEM's are both diaphragm style assemblies. This style has only one convolution doing all the work.
The other style is a bellows assembly -- the RPI RCB100. This style assembly, offered only by RPI, has several convolutions doing all of the work so it lasts much longer than the diaphragm style. Now you have a choice... It's the RPI advantage!
