This is the stainless steel 120V outlet cover that I put on my '15 Classic. You do need to change the outlet itself -- which is probably a good thing anyway since Airstream uses the cheap "press to connect" outlets.

Marinco Marine SS 120V Outdoor Cover (AFI Marinco) Boaters Cove 52.99

The only thing I don't like about the Marinco is it's a vertical outlet cover. Stainless horizontal covers don't seem to exist. I did find an aluminum one though I may go with, although it's not very pretty. I feel a vertical outlet cover mounted horizontal has a much greater potential for water intrusion. BAB, does the spring that keeps the cover secure really seal the outlet tight against the membrane?

No sign of any moisture at all. I, too would have preferred a horizontal opener, but this is the best I've found. There's been plenty of water on this Marinco, and no issues. Since the product is designed for boats, it has a strong spring, and a more than adequate high quality silicone-type seal. The outlet is on the GFCI circuit and if there'd been any water intrusion it would have tripped the GFCI. Hasn't happened.

This is the same plate that is manufactured by Pass & Seymour. The horizontal version is the WPH8. What Marinco sells is the vertical version WP8. If you Google these numbers, they are easily found online.

I think I'll buy a WPH8. They also manufacture versions for standard duplex receptacle as well as the Decors version (like a GFCI).

The WP8 and WPH8 are "dustproof", not watetproof. Per their own specifixations, they do not meet the NEC requirements for sealing again water intrusion.

Agreed. I'm basing my try in BAB's comments above. There is no seal on the plastic door that Airstream currently uses. I also intend to use a spec grade Hubbell illuminated face outlet. It's instant verification that it is live. The GFCI protection is in the breaker.

I'll report back when the cover arrives.

Skylight colors: gray-clear-clear

Pricing was as of December 2014.
BAB, Zybane or others: we are going to replace our skylights with Maxims. Do you recommend installing them ourselves, or is this best left to our dealer (Foley)?

I did them myself. I have the detail for the two skylights if you'd like to save yourself the work of getting up on the roof and measuring the openings. I've sent this to a flock of '15-'16 Classic owners. You will have to do the color selection (window tints) and of the aluminum frame -- white or aluminum (most of us have had the white powder coat...but your choice.)

Babs keep the information on the skylights I want to replace mine but with all the other problems I am having I am going to wait. Do you still have the old cover for the electrical power cord from your trailer? Would love to buy it to match both covers on mine. Zipdee has sent me another control unit for the awning in hopes that this will fix my ongoing problem. They have redesigned it again and the new update looks good. Will keep you all updated. Living in the middle of the Yellowstone park makes it hard to fix things. 100 miles to a hardware store and have to say for full time they are not the best for 4 season living. O well we will see what Yuma weather does to the home in 2 months

Zybane: pls PM me with your email address and I'll send you the document.

Bob: I have the old cover somewhere. I'll save it for you.

Got the Tarheel motorized antenna mast installed with the Wifi Ranger and Weboost LTE antenna all setup. Routed everything to the Blu-ray player area via the fridge vent. Took about eight hours, fun project. I can even see this baby rise and lower through the center skylight.
