I haven't posted here in a while, but I still peruse the threads when time permits and really enjoy a lot of the posts. Today, I am looking for a source for skylight parts for an older Marathon conversion. I found 'Skyport' on the hinge piece, but haven't had any luck searching either the internet or the threads here with that name. The problem I've encountered is the hinges have finally failed, the hard plastic turned brittle from the heat and sun and has crumbled away. They don't leak, but it makes them hard to open and close. Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions?  Cry

Hey Cliff, I figured if anyone had a suggestion it would be you, and I appreciate your input. Pricey is an understatement. I'm hoping to find just the hardware and not have to replace. The ones offered at Taylor marine would be worth more than the bus, not to mention the hassle of upsizing and cutting a new hole in the roof to get a proper fit when the DW really wants me to plug the holes that are already in the roof. She's not a big fan of skylights and told me as much when we bought the bus. I feel really really fortunate that they've never leaked LOL, but with the warmer weather, they do get opened a lot. I built custom screens for them to keep the bugs out and I like the light they let in. DW even stain glassed the one in the kitchen after she figured out that I wasn't going to remove them. And she really appreciates it when I open the one in the bathroom....
Thanks Cliff

After getting in touch with Marathon, they sent me to Bomar. I'm waiting for a reply back from them as to whether they have any parts left over from the stone age. Thanks
