Bathroom skylight

I just returned from a month-long road trip to the northwest. The Solera performed perfectly, with one glitch. Somewhere along the way, the plastic cover on the bathroom skylight disappeared. It was closed tight, but something must have broke. Anyone know if I can replace just the top, or will I have to replace the entire unit?

Are you talking (skylight) or (vent)? Most skylights are (fixed), Vents have a(hinged) cover. Vents the answer is (yes),replaceable (Lid). Youroo!!

You must be talking about the vent - I'm thinking because the skylight over the shower doesn't move at all (at least mine doesn't). Here's the roof of my Solera

If its the bath vent, just replace it with a Fantastic Fan and be done with it.

Yes, vent is the right term, not skylight. It's the hinged one in the bathroom of the Solera. I'll look for a replacement. Thank you.

Yep, you're right. It's the vent, not the skylight.

You can get a vent cover for that at almost any RV store I had to replace my after this last winter broke the old one while removing ice from the top of the RV. They are easy to replace.

Another suggestion is to have Max-Air covers installed over your vents. They protect the vent lids from air buffeting and offer great rain protection when the vent lid is open. You can even leave them open a bit when traveling at highway speeds. I've had them on several RVs and insisted that the dealer install them on the 2013 Solera 24RS we just purchased.

I've seen some fantastic fans + vent covers, but you have to make sure that both are compatible with each other. The beauty of this is that you can run the vent fan even during the rain without worry about water coming in.
