My sentiments exactly! I have no idea! I put up with the clear on my 355 and now on my 365, but after a week in Myrtle Beach, I had to do something. Most people that have painted theirs say they have regretted it because it blacked it out. So I tested the new paint on some plexiglass and found what I was looking for. IT matches the top of the camper from the outside and still lets in a lot of light but significantly reduces heat.

Or is that type of repair material strictly made to be applied to a rubber roof?
The instructions don't go that far into detail on the repair kit.
Then, would I be able the apply the EB on top of this rubber roof repair?

Sorry for all the questions..
Thus info will help me and possibly someone else down the road.
The EB will stick to itself if the white part is wiped with primer or a damp acetone rag. Most likely you would be"ok" but I would try it on a scrap of plastic to make sure.

Today, I stopped by the dealership to buy 4 tubes of the lap sealant.
I asked about warranty work and they told me they are booked till the middle of August.
So I'm going with a plan to fill in the area between the "dome" and existing lap sealant, to seal the small cracks and to keep that area from holding water.

I was surprised to find out that just 1 tube of lap sealant was enough to fill the whole "trough" between the existing sealant and the dome to the skylight.
I guess buying 4 tubes was "over kill"?




Later on, the next step will be to cover the entire area with Eternabond.
I think I'll get the 6" wide roll for this project.

I am finding out that you can't be too prepared while traveling! Hope it works out well.

What is the story of the wires between the inner and outer panels of plastic?

I guess they are to the light and vent fan, or the lights in the front bed room?
Or who knows, could even be to the exterior running lights?

Lou, I got to thinking after you asked that question.
Is that insulation to the wiring is UV resistant.?
More than likely not...
So I cover the wire with some flexible conduit.


Oh.. Here is a better image of the frosted panel that I put on top of the interior portion of the skylight.

Man that blew me away.

How could they run OEM wires across the skylight! Was the camper bought new or "new to you"? Could it be after market?

I was thinking the same thing Lou. Isn't that dangerous? Especially in the shower mixed with water?
