Bathroom Skylight

Has anybody found a solution to cover the skylight in the shower area to help with the heat?

I use this. It is designed for the door, but fits my skylight perfectly:

swapped mine out to a dark smoked same size on from RV upgrades , it was right about $100 plus 4 tubes of self leveling sealer. tooks 1.5 hours start to finish. Also the in side dome I put two layers of bubble rap from Staples in between the smoked dome and the semi clear inside dome. I cut the bubble rap to fit and used clear packing tape to hold it in place.

Not contact but a simulated stained glass film that I got at Home Depot.
The white areas on the cover I painted black to filter out the light that came through that area. I took the inner cover off.
Skylight is a nice future but I just to bright in the shower for us.

I tried to post a link for what I use but it still has not shown up so I will just describe it. It is the Camco door window cover, part #45167. It attaches with velcro and works well on the door window or skylight.

Some people say the foil will melt the skylight. How long have you had yours up?

I've used the same thing now for several years without any problems.

If it gets too hot the Velcro comes unstuck.
I've also done similar to Steve's stained glass, I just used some limo window tint which tones down the brightness a lot & helps with the heat.

We live on a beach where it gets very hot! Do you think we are still ok with this?

It sure won't hurt to try it. If we're in it running the ac it stays stuck, if we leave & it it VERY hot it comes unstuck. Been threatening to glue the Velcro, but haven't yet.

Our solution to the skylight

Since the wife is always needing a place to dry her delicates after washing laundry, I figured a multi purpose solution for the skylight. We like to be able to use the skylight sometimes while showering so I didn't want a permanent darkening of it. I used 1" dowels with Velcro around the ends and stuck up on top of the shower stall and either end. The two dowels will hold several hangers for clothes drying in the warm shower stall but when done we take the foam filled fan cover and use the dowels to help hold it up there. I'll try to add a few pictures to help explain.

Does anyone know what size a replacement skylight is for my 2015 36 RL. It has yellowed and I noticed the caulking needs replacing. Any help would be welcome.
Thanks

I cut a piece of the foil bubble (white on one side) to fit the opening and glued 4 magnets to the corners. I glued 4 attracting magnets to the 4 corners of the shower skylight. When it's hot I stick the 4 magnets together and it holds the foil in place and blocks the sun without completely blocking the light. When not in use I fold it in half so it lets all the light in. Hope this makes sense. Even a light piece like what I use really makes a world of difference in temperature.
