Shower Skylight

I have a 27N but this can apply to any RV with the raised shower skylight. We hate it due to all the heat it generates. I need the headroom so I don't want to install a shade on the inside and deal with removing it every time I shower. Plus a shade on the inside does not stop the transfer of heat to the interior. Has anyone put anything over the exterior of the skylight? I'm thinking a bright white coating of some type would greatly reduce the heat. Thanks.

I painted the exterior of ours with white Krylon Fusion for Plastic paint. It has made a world of difference.

I would prime/paint it gloss white. It’ll still let in light but reflect some heat away.

I used flex seal, the brush/roll on one, I used two coats of white then two coats of black and two coats of white, the first two coats is because I wanted white on the inside, the two coats of black is to block the light then the last two coats of white is to reflect the light, it makes a big difference, and hopefully it will protect it from getting brittle. I did a light sand job on it first.

Thanks. It's really a huge heat collector.

On our previous RV the shower sky light was two layers. I put alum foil covered bubble wrap between the two plastic pieces. It worked well for us.

Not on the exterior. I used a beige colored blackout material. Had it cut to fit the inside and Velcro’d it on. It kept the heat and light out and was easily removed when we wanted both.
