I have a 4646 VCM skylight, and I was wondering if it would be possible to retro-fit a solar panel to the existing skylight. Any thoughts? Also, what is the long term hassle with the VCS, such as the life expectancy of the battery unit? I'm considering getting another VCM just to avoid the eventual wear-out of the solar components.

Answer: 
Since we do not provide a flashing kit for lower than a 10 degree pitch (you will need to construct your own flashing), the "No Leak" warranty will not apply. However, your skylight will still be covered under the 20 Year Warranty for Seal Failure of the Glass and 10 Year Warranty for Manufacturing Defects. Thank you.

We're putting 3 skylights into a new room, and want them to open and close as a group. Can we make them into a group using the remote?

Also, since we'd be ordered 3 new solar skylights, we'd be getting 3 remotes. Our goal is to put one on the wall, and then have 1 on an end table, and save one as a back-up. Would we be able to use all 3 remotes to operate the same group of skylights? I've read the specs and they don't seem to answer that. Thanks.
