Dometic Penguin AC shroud 2006 Safari

Howdy Folks. I just noticed a little crack on the top of my AC Shroud most likely from our tough winter last year or the Samurai squirrels inhabiting the trees around our yard dropping acorns from above. At any rate, I've searched threads here and see that these shrouds do need replacing and are easy to replace. I've also gotten some good tips here regarding protecting the new one.

So I have one simple question: Is THIS the model? It seems like there are different models with different decimal points in the model number.

Dometic 3308046.014 Polar White Penguin Shroud Assembly : Amazon.com : Automotive

thanks!

I recommend one of these replacements. VASTLY superior to Dometic's material.

Thanks, I saw those. But with my Amazon Prime free shipping that's a pretty huge price difference. I was thinking I could spend some of the savings on some good U/V protective paint as has been described elsewhere here. I couldn't find the ICON through Amazon. How much better are they?

I have a 2007 25' Safari and replaced my cover two years ago. The part number of the replacment I purchased directly from Dometic was #3308046. It cost $87.29 plus $25.00 shipping and sales tax. The hardest part about replacing it is that there is a foam gasket lining the underside of the cover that you have to install and use the old cover for the pattern.

A LOT better IMO. They are much thicker and a very flexible ABS (I think) material. Lifetime warranty as well. Per the above post, not terribly more expensive.

A little fiberglass resin and cloth on the inside will reinforce that crack.

Maybe, for awhile. Mine, at age 5 years, became as fragile as an eggshell, particularly over the entire horizontal surface. In fact, after simply sticking a finger through the top, I removed and tossed down onto the grass. It shattered into dozens of pieces like it was made of glass.
