Next project - 1500 watt inverter. Going into the storage compartment just aft of the generator. 1/0 cable as Iím 10 ft plus to the batteries. Keeping the AC side simple. Iíll plug the shore power cable into the inverter and shut off the inverter,water heater and A/C breakers while we are camped. Now we need a break in the weather to do the install...maybe March.

Skylight Replacement

Came home from an RV trip and discovered water in the shower pan. Found the outside skylight was cracked. The plastic was brittle. I don't recall hitting any objects and there was no other roof damage.

I replaced it with Specialty Recreation K1422ELP Low Profile Single Pane Exterior Skylight Kit from Amazon -

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I used the sealant that was with the skylight kit to seal the bottom flange of the skylight to the roof (per instructions), and then used Dicor 501LSW-1 Lap Sealant to seal the perimeter of the skylight to the roof and to also seal the screw heads.

It was a fairly simple task and the skylight fit the existing opening. The new skylight has a much lower profile.

Yeah, I dread every time I clean the roof close to any plastic vent.

Is the new skylight thicker than the old one?

Itís definitely thicker. I canít confirm the materials on the old vs the new, but the old seems to be more of a semi-flexible (until it gets old and brittle) plastic and flimsy material. The new one is a polycarbonate or acrylic material which is thicker and more substantial.

Good thing you noticed the leak. I had a coach several years ago that the skylight cracked on. Never saw a leak, but water ran down inside the wall. Bubbled the sidewall.
