Cracked shower skylight 2014 Hurricane 34E

I have a cracked shower dome on my 2014 Hurricane 34E. I can't seem to locate a replacement vendor. This dome is an unusual shape 18X26X7" high including the flange to cover the inner dressing. Has anyone been through this before on my model, and if so, can you recommend a vendor where I can get a replacement. Much thanks in advance.

If Thor can't send you a replacement, which on a three year old coach they should be able to, you will have to find someone that can fabricate one for you. I would go after Thor for it, though.

It is likely Thor won't send it directly to you. They will, however, give you a part number that you can have a dealer order.

Contact Tiara RV in Elkhart, Indiana with your vin# & they will either ship you the part or a link to order it.

Cracked?

I'm wondering how it got cracked in the first place. Hit a tree branch? Low clearance gas station? Pulled too hard and that 4 foot bass came flying out of the water and landed on the roof?

How is got cracked?

It was a 200 pound human up on the roof and leaned on it for support It's made of very thin plastic and really can't hold up to any abuse. Getting a replacement is challenging.

If that's the worst you ever did, kudos! I have broken or destroyed much more expensive stuff in my day!

I contacted our dealer who ordered a replacement for $80. Installed it myself. Funny, the new one is the same thin plastic. No improvement over the old. Guess I,ll have to stay clear

I know this is an old thread now....but for future reference
mine had an odd shaped almost box dome. If it's anything like that I never could find a replacement.
I did figure out though there's no need to replace with the same thing....at least in mine.
as long as long as the flange length and width covers the opening, most any of the domes you can find online would work. Many of those seem to be better too.... better plastic I mean

My 34E has an odd shaped dome which is taller on one end compared to the opposite end. There is an inner dome that dictates this configuration. That is why I had to go to my dealer for a replacement from Thor. The inner dome, which may be for insulation purposes, sticks up on one end. An ordinary replacement dome would not allow for the proper clearance. $80 bucks and I installed it myself.
