I replaced mine and used eternabond, then caulked the edges. Just be careful of the rubber .

You may have gotten condensation between the inside & outside sections of skylight, the inside is not sealed.

Needed to replace mine. Used a heat gun to soften caulk, in small sections though. The new skylight appears to be flimsier than the first.

I think for something like this that I would recommend contacting Tiara RV in Elkhart, IN. Provide them your Redwood model, year of manufacture and VIN for your coach. They should be able to determine exactly what you have on your coach and quote an exact replacement.
