In short: After getting our Roo 233s home, it rained very hard and I discovered a leak in the skylight above the bathroom shower. It turns out it was a crack in the plastic outer shell coming from one of the screws. I called FR and told them about it, and they sent me out a new skylight assembly right away.
I got around to replacing the skylight today. I took the old one off, cleaned up all the lap sealant and butyl putty from the old one (this took forever by the way). Put the butyl tape on the new skylight nice and pretty. Lined up all the holes and pressed it down perfectly. Put the screws back in making SURE not to tighten them too much as to crack the plastic like what was done at the factory.
Got ready to put down new Dicor sealant around the new skylight. Thought I would clean up the surface a little before putting new caulk down on it. I sprayed one single shot of cleaner.... a small amount hit the new skylight and BOOM!! A crack happened in the NEW ONE!!
I think it was because the plastic was hot from the sun and the "cold" spray was just too much for it.
So....I am not happy at all. Looks like I will be doing this all over again! My question is this: "Does ANYONE make a better (more rugged) skylight for these things than the CRAP that comes from FR?
Please let me know because I don't really care how much it costs, or how heavy it is (the heavier the better as far as I'm concerned). I just need to replace this one quickly and I don't know where to go to find an aftermarket one that is much, much stronger.
Thank you all for any advice you can give about this situation.
