Skylite cracks

You might want to check your skylites. I have a 2012 2604 and was on the roof today doing some eternabond and found this when I got to my skylite......

Good eye. Thanks for the heads up.
Hopefully you have a good dealer that will replace that for you ASAP.

My dealer is RVWholesalers. I'm local so we'll see how their repair shop is and how fast they will get on it. I will keep you posted.

Wow!
Wonder if thats due to an over-agressive screw gun operator....
I'll be looking mine over as well.

See anything obvious on the roof caulking so far? I haven't went over mine yet.

Roof caulking looks pretty good. I am eternabonding all the factory seams though just for ease of maintanence and added protection. I called RVWholesalers today and set up an appt. for this Friday, which is great because we a camping at Indian Lake for the weekend. They said they can change the skylite out in an hour or so. They are also going to replace a lock that isn't working and look at my black water dump valve that is leaking alittle.

Just checked our 2012 2604 and all is well with the sky light. Hopefully it stays that way. Have only towed ours 50 mi. Hoipefully it's not a stress induced cracking issue.

Well....RV wholesalers are here in my driveway as we speak replacing my skylite. Tech. said it was a over agressive screw gun operator and not a stress related crack. I most say that Rvwholesalers has done a wonderful job on getting some minor problems resolved. Its nice saving the big money on the purchase and yet be close enough that RVW will come to the house to do warranty work.

That's Great!!!!

Now you can relax and enjoy that camping trip this weekend!

Thanks for posting the end result. Too many times people post their problems, then never post the solution!
