Surveyor skylight recall

I read a bit about the skylight recall a few months back and assumed since I hadn't received any recall letters that my 2013 Surveyor Select 235rks was manufactured with the new model skylight and thus not included in the recall. I've since learned that someone with the same make/model/year trailer did receive the letter and was included in the recall.

My trailer was manufactured in 08/2013. I can confirm this persons trailer was built earlier although I'm not sure by how much.

Does anyone know the time span for the skylight recall as it relates to Surveyors?

Best to look at it. If you have no cracks, you're probably OK and have the newer unit from the factory. That's about when I replaced mine on my '12 model... I still look at everything on top of mine pretty often.

My dealer replaced ours earlier this year, we never got a letter either, but I mentioned that I had read it on this forum so they checked and replaced it.

The letter I go says "Units manufactured in late 2011/ early 2012 with Bronze polycarbonate skylights."
Hopes this helps out a little bit.

Bought my 2012 Roo19 in April 2012. Got the letter around Nov/Dec 2012. Got it inspected by RV dealer in October 2013. It was OK; didn't need replacement.
