King Tailgater Dome Melt down

Hello From Arizona,
A couple of days ago while preparing for my vacation I attached my new dish Tailgater Pro to the roof of my Silverback. This thing has not been up for even 4 days. Today I noticed the dome has flattened out on the top. I know it is hot in Mesa but come on, not that hot. I know this is a relatively new design but I would hope it would hold up to a couple of days of 105 degree temps. We haven't even got started yet. I am a little disappointed to say the least. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? What happens when it really gets hot????
As always I appreciate any input. Cannot seem to get the pictures upright.

We have the new white plastic dome, so I am interested in what happened. We place it where we can get a good view south. We did notice that it is super "light" in weight.

p.s. the temp today was in the high 70s....

I am going to take it back tomorrow. I am hoping it gets replaced instead of wasting time sending it back for repairs.

Let us know! I might have to stick with a tried and true solid color

I realize that black trim and things looks good, but white is so much more practical. The side of my slide out is black and gets upwards of 140 degrees in direct sunlight the light gray next to it about 100, white wouldn't be much more than ambient. The heat off the electronics inside the doom has to also be a factor.

I am happy to report that I took the Tailgater back to CW this morning and without hesitation they exchanged it for a new unit. They were surprised to say the least.
Thanks for the responses
