Don't forget to add pics of your replacment. Good luck.
Thanks Texas! I am going to call and ask if they can make a 5 inch bubble instead of a 3 inch... you are right, that would add a little more strength to the structure as a whole.

THIS is very much a possibility. One thing I did notice: the guy (or gal) who installed the skylight on my camper that day must have been drunk, or just didn't care. ALL of the screws are "zipped" into the roof at all kinds of leaning over angles and such.... crooked as can be. I followed the same exact holes putting it back on because I didn't want to start a new hole right next to the old hole and then have the screws wiggle. It may well be that they are putting stress on the inside of the holes through the skylight plastic. Great point!

Hey Texas!

I have put Eternabond tape over the crack for now.... FR is sending yet another skylight out to me... have not made up my mind as to whether I will risk it again with OEM part, or go for aftermarket of better quality.

Thank you for remembering! I didn't forget this thread... I just haven't acted upon it yet. I will post up how the 2'nd replacement goes when I do it.
