Default New skylights for 2012 210 uds?

Anyone aware of good replacements? 5-6 years they're cracked and it's time to replace them.

The trailer has two, one above the bed and one in the bathroom. I believe they're the same. Both have fans, but I don't think fan matters.

Any remove and replace suggestions appreciated.


Thank you

You need to know what brand of fan you have though. This one is for Ventline fans. If you have a different brand like Fantastic or Maxxair you'll need to get one specific to them.

As for replacing it, there should be a piano hinge that simply screws to one side.

There's a ton of videos on YouTube about how to replace the lids on RV fan covers. As LJAZ mentioned, you'll need the brand/model to match if you are just replacing a cracked cover. Probably worth replacing the hole thing while you're up there, in which case you only have to match the opening size!

Look for fan covers or vent covers. NOT Skylights.

These aren't skylights, they're vents with fans and covers. Big difference if you are searching for parts and How To videos.

If you;re JUST replacing a cracked lid, here's my favourite how to video:

Default Clarification

You got me. Yes the VENT COVERS are cracked, not the skylight. These are for "Fantastic" vents. Thank you for the replies.

If those are Fantastic vents I believe that the covers have a lifetime warranty. You might want to check with manufacturer to verify (& hopefully) get free replacements.
