Great idea. I may get to that permanent resolution.

But I like the heat in the winter and spring in the shower.

BTW, that Fresh Water Fill PC Board that you helped me fix, still is working like new......

Ditto here, the foam with faux sheepskin also insulates, completely darkens the skylight, and stores easily to keep things in the closets from beatin together goin down the road.

My first try will be with some of that Reflectix stuff I saw at the hardware store yesterday and see if it will just scrunch into the skylight cavity. I am getting some for the front windshield anyway.

I'll post back the result.
Dean: Not sure where ya are or if ya have access to a BIG LOTS, but they sell front RV windshield sunshades that work perfect for the front windshield and was only $6.00/ set. I use two sets now putting one set in windshield and another in the driver and passenger side windows, Cuts the heat 95% and darkens and provides extra privacy at night.

Hi Texnet.

I'm glad to hear you have success with the heavy duty velcro strips. I've tried those and several other types, but the adhesive on all of them let go. The strips were on the flange. I have the same problem with the "sheepskin" pad I put into my overhead vent.


My coach is stored in my driveway, not covered and not used constantly. Maybe that makes a difference?

My coach is also stored outside in the Texas heat. The coach I used the velcro on is a 2007 Hurricane and it has been outside the entire 2 years since we purchased it. The Monaco that we now drive hasn't had a problem with heat above the shower.

How about using some magnets and steel strips that are screwed on the frame?

Glad it is still working because the warranty just expired yesterday.

We camp in the direct sunlight a lot and it was miserable in our shower. I used to make muffins for dinner in there.
