But if the OP is going to throw away the broken skylight anyway, getting it off doesn't matter.

What I did find is there are significant differences in the quality of skylights out there. My dealer was able to put on a new skylight that was at least 2-3mm thicker then the manufacturer (Not Jayco - my old Sunset) and hopefully not as prone to the brittleness that resulted in the cracks.
When I called the dealer they flat out told me the ones they stock are much thicker than the ones that come on the camper and would be less prone to cracking. I am probably going to add a maxx air cover to the bathroom vent fan while I am at it.

Instead of just adding a Maxxair cover, add the one that comes with a three speed fan. You may not have the same junky one speed fan I had in my Greyhawk, but if you do the Maxxair fan is a nice addition. A bit expensive (more than a bit) but worth it in my opinion.

I used some electrical tape when I put a small tear in my roof. It held very nicely for a few weeks until I had eternbond.

JB weld. That stuff works awesome and at $8 a tube it is a cheap, quick and permanent fix. I used it to seal a crack in a hot tub and it hasn't leaked a drop since.

x2... I used it to repair a plastic fitting that is under pressure inside a dishwasher... Can't imagine a much more damaging enviroment with the combination of water, heat, pressure and chemicals. It has held for four months so far.

Went ahead and put JB Weld on the cracks for now. Hopefully it holds until I can replace the skylight next Thursday. I would do it this coming weekend by we are leaving on Thursday to go camping.Click image for larger version
