I'm out in the trailer almost every day doing something, and there have been times when she would remove the Reflectic even here at home, but hasn't yet this time,.... I figure this is to my good, whenever the painted skylight is discovered, now I can claim "oh, I did that a LONG time ago",..... that might work and then again it might not,.....

Vent covers and a little spray paint are good investments.
I too have painted all kinds of plastic on the roof with good results. I'm waiting for the rain to stop down here to paint the skylight in the shower.

Thanks for the tip. Just sprayed mine today. Blocks the sun (heat) but still lets the light in.

If I ever was able to have a custom built RV it would be WITHOUT skylights !!!
I used to work on Manufactured homes,,, seamed like about 70% of them leaked !!!

Replying to the comment on my bubble wrap alternate fix. I guess we all run I different circles of RVing. In my neck of the woods ... the bubble wrap install has been around for several years and has worked for a lot of RV'rs. I put it on my 3 previous Montana's and now my Silverback since the shower skylight is the same across brands. It does reduce the heat coming in, but it doesn't address the light issue that some are balking at. We don't mind the light, so that part isn't an issue to us. No worries on the stuff melting ... it just stays in place and knocks down a lot of the incoming heat.

I did the white paint on the outside of our skylight and I was amazed at how much the heat was reduced while still letting in some light. Prior to this I had the Reflextic sandwiched between the inner and outer domes. That did help a lot but eliminated all of the light. The wife is happy with the new look so I guess I'm happy to.

Interesting. Our bathroom has a large skylight and we have never had a problem with it being hot in there, even with camping in NC summers.

Solar Film on Skylight

At this year's rally, friends explained how they went to Lowe's to get some solar film to put between their skylight. So, off to Lowe's for the solar film (located by the screen replacements), picked up a roll and split it in 1/2 with another CC friend. Ours works and still lets in some light - but does not allow the heat of the day to overwhelm you. It takes a #2 square drive and 8 screws to remove the inner part.

Had a crack in mine, talked to repair shop said life of dome is 5 years. I didn't like that answer so I fixed the problem, I made one out of aluminum. Now no more light heating up bathroom and no more worrying about changing out done.
