Just found the forum

We purchased our 2013 Jayfeather x213 new and have had many camping adventures. Unfortunately, the Denver hail storm got our skylight and vent while at the dealer for servicing. I am trying to figure out how to replace both and found the forum. Hopefully, some members have had similar experiences.

Sorry to hear you guys got hit. It just missed us where I live on the S.W. side of town. We had 'pea sized' hail. I haven't checked on our camper yet, it's parked south of C-470 and Santa Fe a few miles.

A lot of these skylights have an outside 'cover'. If that's the only thing that cracked you can order parts at the camping world up in Golden. (West Colfax). They have a good parts department. The replacement is a pretty simple DIY. You'll need self leveling lap sealant (dicor) and some basic tools you probably already own.

Hail storm

It was being scheduled for service in Golden at Camping World when the May storm hit. It looks like it is going to be worse coming out than it went in. Hail punched holes in the bath skylight and blew the vent cover backwards. I will be replacing both when I get it back.

It is usually stored in the southwest around Englewood and they missed the storm.

I just replaced our skylight, and it's not a bad job, but will take 1 1/2 hours. You'll need to measure the old one two ways. Overall length and width, and the same for just the domed part. You'll need some mineral spirits, a dull putty knife, a cordless drill and either a Phillips bit or a square bit. LOTS of rags. Finally a tube or two of the appropriate self leveling compound (like Dicor). I used one full tube. Google "RV skylight replacement" and watch the You Tube videos, that'll show you exactly what to do, although they skip some cleaning time, so it looks like they do it fast. use the putty knife VERY carefully so as not to damage the roof material. This was my first time, and it was no problem. Pick a nice warm, dry day, or inside somewhere. Good luck.
