im not sure about their RV units, but carrier stopped making their Transport A/C systems.. I think they were sort of absorbed by ThermoKing..

My hatches were a little leaky when I first bought the bus. But on my first road trip (Colorado to California) they both blew off in the Utah wind outside Moab! And I was headed straight towards a wall of rain... Praying that the storm would stay north of I-70. Lucky for me I avoided an indoor flood, and was able to put together a temporary fix with cardboard, blue tarp, and a ton of duct tape.

Planning to install skylights as a replacement and want to be able to open them up so I can vent from the top, too, both for air circulation in the heat, as well as for cooking. Anyone do any DIY projects that include both a skylight and vent? Or I may go with something pre-fab from a boating or RV parts shop.

I'm wondering about hatch type skylights also. I've looked for a few but we settled on a 14x14" crank vent w/ screen. Had to make a word frame then sheet metal, then lots of silicon and flex seal. Hoping to put on elastomeric paint.
