I have used the Dynaflex on the windows. Is is supposed to be more flexible and the one I used goes on white, but dries clear. Very easy to use. I have used the black one on another project, it worked great for its use as well.

It seemed to do a very nice job sealing the skylight, even using it sparingly. I did not want gobs of sealer interfering with the Eternabond tape, I figured that was going to be my main sealer for the project. I put a 1/8" bead on the roof just outside the screw holes, another between the two domes again just outside the screw holes and then once it was snugged down I ran a bead all the way around and smoothed it with my finger before letting it setup about 1 hour. I then applied the Eternabond tape, covering the screws and overlapping as I went up the top, just like you would on the roof of a house.

It looks good to me anyway. LOL

Leaking Shower Skylight

Any leaking is trouble and needs to be corrected as soon as possible. Seeing water between inner and outer layers and ignoring it is asking for trouble in the long run. Just because it is not visible on the inside yet, it is wicking between the layers following the thread of the screws where capillary action is allowing water to wick into the wood. When the leak finally shows up inside the coach, you will likely find rotten wood when you start any repairs.

Looks like you got it! You might park it in the warm sun for a while and be able to work the Eternabond down a little more if you want or think it's necessary. My SIL had a roller tool that we used to work it down nice and flat. The Sun is your friend in this case.

Post yours let's compare .
Interesting Comparison to my 38' Magna:

Outer 33.5 x28
Flange 3"
Rise 5"

Roof Opening
23 3/8 x 29 5/8


Inner Bubble:


22 x 28
rise 2.5"


Note that the Inner dome bubble is narrower than the roof opening. Perhaps to eliminate a roof ledge inside the dome..

I have not removed the skylights yet.

The differences are minor but could be because of the differences on size, age, and/or my inaccurate measurements...

dfuelman, the screws I used were 8-16x1. They were the ones we took out so I used to replace. They have a head on them an so the Eternabond won't fit flat. I also did put some sealant on top of them due to the edge on the screw head so that will cushion the tape. I also am going to add a bead of sealant on the tape where it touches the dome. That should cover any areas where the tape is not absolutely smooth against the dome.

I haven't finished the putting the trim pieces around the inside of the shower yet but the fit inside of the shower is perfect. Then I will put a bead of clear sealant around the top of the trim next to the dome. That should put everything back like it was before the leak. Thanks for all of the help and comments.

The Eternabond never lays perfectly flat. I think you got it sealed and with a little touch up here and there with sealer you will be good to go! First chance I get, I will take a picture of mine to compare, but it looks about the same as yours. I doubt you will ever have to mess with that again.
