Most of the oem cheap skylights are cracked around the screws do to over tightening.I would be surprised if yours are not.

Mine didn't have screws; I noted that there was no damage. It was held down only by butyl tape.

Our 2014 was the same... no screws.

Ours was two-sided tape (not buytl, but an automotive grade VHB tape). The stuff was super-sticky!

I said butyl, but it was probably the same thing that was on yours-and, yes, definitely sticky!

2005 30' Classic that has "factory covers" on the skylights? Looks like a white cap screwed down to the bumper. AS not purchased yet but can only imagine new maxim skylights in the near future. Caps have been installed since it was new.

I installed my new Maxim skylights yesterday. Wow! They are really built! Now, my inner trim needs replacing as well. Does anyone know where I can buy? Skylights are 22 1/2 X 22 1/2 and 17 1/2 X 26.

We are in Yellowstone right now. I notice condensation appears on the metal frame at night as the temperatures drop. It's enough to start dripping on the floor or behind the interior trim. I would've expected the frame would have a thermal break in their construction. Are these residential skylights just sized for our Airstreams. Anyone notice condensation on cold nights? Didn't really notice this issue with the OEM skylights.
