Shower skylite

We have a8528 Flagstaff with a clear shower skylite. How do other Flagstaff owners block the heat it lets in? Or any one else with clear skylite.

Thanks for your help.

I just saw this today (not for the shower) but it's a insulator for vents. I purchased it to keep the light out of the bedroom.

On our Rockwood, the shower skylight frame is exactly the same size as the frame for the frosted glass in the door and the reflective shade for a door covers perfectly.

I install four screen plastic clips that can be rotated, that are mounted into the present screws that hold skylight in at the corners. We then mounted a 1/4 thick white foam cut to fit the clips. The foam board can be purchased at a craft store, clips can be purchased at a local hardware store such as an Ace hardware in the storm door repair parts area. I did this for under $5.00. The board is removed for showering and than reinstalled.

I don't have a Flagstaff but in mine, which has an odd-shaped skylight, I bought a thin piece of clear plastic and cut it te same size as the frame. Then I got a paper light blocking folding shade at Home Depot and cut that the same size. I used the screws from the frame to hold it in.

Well that just seems like an easy fix. I think I have my next project... Thanks.

Hi, we are camping right now and will be traveling home on Wendsday the 2 of June. I will then be able to post pictures of what I did, but my wife also said to go to RV Net and do a search. Type in RV skylight covers and serval options will appear, she saw the same thing we did on that site.

Hope this helps?
