Crank Skylight Replacement

I've got a 14"x20" crank skylight that needs replacing. I bought one through Inland RV but it didn't come with instructions. The original has 3 rivets on each end that the crank flange attaches to. It's pretty straight forward, but does anyone have a step by step way to replace the old one? It would be great to have pictures. The only sealant I need to use is where I attach the rivets to the crank flange. Also, do you think I can do all this from inside the trailer. Thanks for your help!!

Have the operators in place.

Place some masking tape on the inside of the Astrodome, where the operators will be fastened.

Place the Astrodome in place, from inside the trailer.

With a pencil, mark on the tape exactly where the operators are located.

Remove the cover and operators.

Install the operators on the cover where you marked them to be located.

Raise the cover thru the vent and then lay it in place so that the operaors are at each end.

Snap the operators into the brackets.

Reinstall the screen.

Have a beer.........or two.
