    Solitude skylight sure is thin and flimsy.

    I was sealing things on the roof and found the skylight to be uncomfortably cheesy.

    For those that have had to replace the skylight, how many years did the OEM skylight last?

    I'm guessing that I'll be replacing that in just a couple of years.

    Mine cracked in about 6 months. Replaced with aftermarket myself. GD reimbursed for the parts. Much heavier than stock.

    Did you buy a polycarbonate? I'm hoping that there is an aftermarket light that will fit. I had to have a custom made some time ago. Expensive option.

    1 year. This was the first hail storm. Here is a link to my write up/questions with part numbers and size on my 2018 310GK.

    I went to ICON and got the part number.

    https://www.icondirect.com/skylights/

    Purchased on Amazon. Used Alpha system caulk and Icon Butyl caulk under lip of skylight. No comparison to OEM. Much better.
