Default Skylight

Hello,

Help is required with the replacement of a skylight, my 2008 18ft funfinder. I accidently broke my bathroom/shower skylight, so angry at myself. Has anyone changed these before ?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

If the size is 14 X 14, perhaps campingworld skylight replacement cover wiil
fill the bill.

Thanks, sounds about right, I'll have a closer look when I remove more snow, covered with a plastic tub and rocks to hold tub down, broke cleaning snow off. If I recall there is some factory and added caulking, never leaked before, not happy about this,
Thanks !

Blackmore, if I had a dollar for every item I've accidentally damaged on my trailer, I could afford to fix more of them!

Seriously, at least you have a good excuse -- the snow hid the skylight! I've never had any excuse for my blunders.

Plus this repair job will give you a chance to add a MaxxAir hood over the skylight at the same time, which means that you can leave the skylight open in the rain.

But the hood will still break if you try to run your snowblower on the roof of the trailer.

Thanks, just a job I didn't need, lots of snow here in Northern New Brunswick. My roof rake shattered it, it appears to have been brittle, perhaps over the years our sun caused it to weaken,
Thanks for the advice......

So look on the bright side -- since the skylight was brittle, the chances are good that it would have broken while you were out on the road. At least it had the courtesy to break while you were not traveling!!

Bummer about the skylight. If it is the vent cover skylight, You can just replace the crank-open cover, I had replaced mine due to a crack. If it is the big fixed skylight, and I was replacing it I would scrape the sealer off the screw heads to remove them, then I would carefully remove sealer from the plastic skyslight, I wouldn't try to remove it from the roof membrane as I would likely damage it. After I would install a new one I would make sure to use the proper self-leveling sealer that is the correct one for my type of roof membrane. Do not use silicone caulk!. My 2010 189FBS has a TPO roof membrane, made by Alpha Sytems LLC, 800-462-4698. They sell a sealent called 1010 non-sag sealant. The popular Dicor sealant isn't compatible with all TPO membranes. I treat all synthetic materials on my camper with 303 protectant, which is the best!

Default So it goes.

Well, at least this is an important repair. My To Do List is always growing but most aren't required. This one is. If it went this, they'd be something else.

I agree with what I'm seeing here. We have great members. If you want to upgrade the exhaust fan, the MaxxAir is awesome. And yeah. As our 2016 gets older, I worry about finding something has deteriorated and I didn't realize it.

Well thank you so much for the detailed reply, it is the fixed bigger skylight, no vent. Looks like a mild weather sunny day repair, fortunately it is the top half of the skylight so no water (snow) inside, amazing what a tote bin and some weight can do. I will be referring to your reply when the repair is addressed. Thanks again.
p.s. kudos to funfinder forums, what a valuable friendly experience, thanks all.
