Roo 23ss Bathroom Skylight

So quick question. I have a 2008 23ss. I purchased this in excellent condition about a year ago. The previous owner at some point had removed the skylight in the bathroom and placed a piece of reflectant space blanket in there to aid in the climate control in the camper. The problem is that it makes the bathroom very dark even with the lights on. I want to remove the skylight cap from the outside, but have never done such. The cap is very well sealed with self leveling sealant. My question is how difficult is this to get off? and is there anything I should be concerned with in regards to protecting the roof while removing the sealant? I do not see any other way I can get into the skylight

Thanks for your help

I'm not 100% but I thought my bath skylight had a removable panel from the underside. Might take a look.

Are you talking about the shower skylight?

It may be a window tint which has an adhesive. the way we remove them at work is with a steamer and a heat gun, or a hair drier. Check an edge and try to slowly peel it away while warming it with a hair dryer.

There is an inner plastic cone in the skylight above the shower. It is held on to the ceiling with white screws, probably about 6 or 8 total, which use a square drive screwdriver. Have a vacuum ready, as some foam debris, insects, etc., will fall into the shower and bathroom. Be careful with the inner skylight cone; it is very thin, delicate, and brittle molded plastic. A replacement unit runs $48 to $140 depending on where you buy it.

You should be able to remove the inner skylight unit, remove the reflective insulation, and replace. You may want to, as I have done, put the reflective insulation cut to fit just around the exterior of the white plastic cone where it is not visable. Affix with strong duct tape so it won't bounce up into your view when you hit bumps in the road.

Do not break the seal or remove the outer skylight. However, double check the dicor lap sealant to make sure there are no cracks developing, and if necessary clean and apply more dicor self-leveling lap sealant.

The upper skylight is supposed to be clear, but gets cloudy with age and sunshine. It can be brought back to new condition on the exterior with an electric drill with a soft buffer (or headlight-kit polisher) and Meguiar's Plastic-X clear plastic cleaner/polish. Regular treatment with the Plastic-X and a micro-fiber towel should keep it clear and new looking.

Good look with your project.

It is not a window film. I see the actual texture of the reflective insulation sitting in the layer between inside membrane and outside


I will look for those screws. Ill let you know what I find.
