I climbed up on the roof and painted the exterior of the bubble with a regular can of Rustolium.

I used Restoleum Ultra,,, made for Wood / Metal & Plastic,,, not sure I would recommend it,,, it took 5 coats over 5 days ??? I did not want to see brush marks from inside !!! It was the only reasonable priced paint I saw in a Quart can !!!

I left mine clear. Took off the inside section and foiled it, added some 1" foam and them foil on inside. Reinstalled and the inside of the bathroom stays as cool as the rest of the RV. I also had all of the windows limo tinted and painted the front door frost window black. Rv stays cooler now by 10 degrees. I am in Texas, so we are used to 100+ degree temps. This works great.

So, how did your trip work out? Is she talking to you yet?

An alternate to painting the shower sky light dome is to take down the inner lense and put a couple of layers of 1" bubble wrap inbetween the inner and out lense ... reinstall the inner lense. It makes quite a bit of difference and still lets the light in.

I put MaxxAir covers on all vents when the 5er was purchased. Wish they made one for the skylight.
