Hello, I replaced the acrylic skylights along with new rubber selflockin seals, how ever, I still have leaks? .........The glass installer used polyurethane based sealant, this did not work. ........Is there someone with suggestions?

On the Rialtas, when the skylight leaked a lot of members used Eternabond tape around the outside of the skylight around the whole light. If done right it should stop any leaks. Use the 4" wide tape.

Your best option is to take it back and get them to fix it properly at no cost or refund you anything you paid.

See my post here for how to seal RV windows properly.

Default Done with leaking windows

I finally got around to replace the rubber on my center opera window. The plastic pretty much crumbled when I tried to reinstall. I thought about trying flat acrylic but after much thought I decided to eliminate the three of them completely. I cut pieces of 1/8" tempered masonite to fit and fiberglassed over the openings. I have 2 layers of glass and resin done, now it will be filling the low spots and sanding to blend it in to the roof. I love my roadtrek but they can keep those windows!
