I used the reflectix and 1/2" velcro (with glue strip) at the corner edges and middle at the inside bottom of skylight. I have only had up in storage for 2 weeks. Easy to remove or put up. I am not sure yet if the sun will cause the glue to break down. I saw in a RV parts catalog where they make a pull blind for that. If this does not work, I will try that next. My previous camper had a tinted skylight and no problem.

Bath sky lite

I posted a solution to the heat coming into the bath room sky lite some time ago. Here it is again.
I removed the white trim around the sky lite, peeled off the clear plastic (easy to do). Went to my local glass shop, had a piece of "TEMPERED"
gray tint glass cut the same size as the clear plastic. Silicone the glass to the white trim. This removes the heat from the sun, filters all UV. What a difference it made in the bath. The gray tinted glass for some reason removes the most heat caused by the sun. The piece of glass will cost about $18.00, worth every penny spent. I made this mod three years ago!

Tempered glass cannot be cut. Attempting to do so shatters it. Your glass shop lied and sold you ordinary glass. (You can find instructions online on how to cut it, but the first step is to heat it, which turns it back into ordinary glass.)

I used a side window shade for a car that attaches with suction cups from the auto department of your generic big store. Works great. Easy to put up, easy to take down.
