Rockwell A-liner skylight leak
« on: June 02, 2017, 01:28:41 PM »
I have a used 2012 Rockwell A-liner, brought it home last summer. 2 of the skylights started to leak in a torrential downpour over Memorial Day, they were fine last summer.  I've looked at lots of tutorials on re-sealing or replacing skylights in RVs, but the A-liner skylights do not look like they are attached the same (wish I had a photo, I'm at work).  Regular RVs have a lot of caulking and screwholes on the flange that need to be covered.  My skylights have no holes on the flange, and a thin bead of caulk around it. 
Here is a stock photo, you can kind of see there's no gobs of caulk around the domes: https://assets-cdn-interactrv.netdna-ssl.com/interactrv/brand_photo/imgh_800x600-wm_oaklakerv_com-m0228201715525337/brand_photo_201702280352533735807271.jpg

Does anyone have any experience re-sealing or replacing skylights on an a-liner? How are they attached? What's the best course of action for leaks?

IMO Eteranbond tape is the answer for fixing any leaking roof penetration on any RV.

LOL yes Rockwood. Rockwell is the elementary school up the road.
