Love the kitchen and shower skylights - temperature is not an issue for us, and curtains keep the sleeping areas dark. Love not being in a dark box!

My trailer is less than a year old and my skylight shattered. I have no idea why it broke as I did not hit anything. I paid $350 to have it replaced and I went ahead and got a smoke colored light to replace it so it doesn't let in as much heat here in Texas. I do like having the light but I suspect this is going to cost more than it benefits over the life of the trailer.

Which skylight shattered, and what year and model do you have?

Just another option if you have a skylight and don't care for it. There is batten, reflectix and luan between outside and inside. Outside is coated thick. I had planned to remove the outer dome completely, but got lazy and left it for now. I'm of the opinion mentioned earlier. If I want natural light, I go outside, if I want light inside, I turn the light on. But, it's an option and some like them, and that's all good.

With a new trailer - there is a warranty, Jayco's is for 2-years. Why wasn't this covered?

My trailer is a 2015 Whitehawk. The skylight that shattered was in my living room area.

According to the service guys that repaired it, the warranty doesn't cover broken skylights but rather only things like leaking, etc ... I wish it would have been covered by the warranty.

Do you know what caused it to shatter?

Unfortunately I do not. The odd thing was, there wasn't even broken plastic inside the window frame - it was clean. The AC sits right behind it and had no marking on the plastic indicating I had hit something either. The roofing area around the window is in perfect shape too. Bizarre. I had thought perhaps it froze and cracked but I'd think at least some broken plastic would have been present.

I would question that it wasn't covered by warranty, they say bumper to bumper. I would have called Jayco directly

Hard to prove it was not abused or accidentally damaged. Even though the heat, UV, and time make it so brittle that it broke on its own.
