Black Joe quick fix

I have a 2012 360 I purchased new in 2012. We are in our faith season in Maine and returning to Florida tomorrow. Today I noticed small cracks in the dome covering the half bath exhaust fan opening. We are leaving tomorrow and needed a temporary patch pronto. We are a long way from a CamperWorld or RV repair shop. I first tried some extreme duck tape that usually sticks to anything and it would not stick at all. The plastic dome has determined probably from UC exposure and is turning into powder. I tried spraying primer but that came
off with just a light touch. The plastic? is now paper thin and fragile with several cracks. Rain was forecasted this pm and it is raining now. In desperation I remember a tube of Blackjoe roof patch that I had used on my storage shed roof. It is a thick bituminous goo that can patch small holes in shingled roofs. Up on the roof I go a and carefully cover the cracks from both the outside and inside. So far it has kept the rain out. Need to cover this hatch with a new maxair cover asap. If you have a similar cover check it soon!

I had mine totally fall apart on a trip last year.
I live in Arizona and park it in the sun and it turned to powder.
I know you can buy a replacement or just the whole assemble.
I used a whole roll of duct tape on mine when it was gone.
Good luck and find the nearest Camping World.
