I would rather not heat the air at the other side of the plastic, if possible.The skylight covers are normally to keep out the blazing sun in summer in the south of france (other sunny spaces are available)
Never felt the need to block any skylight because of the cold even in minus temperatures
Thank youI made up pads from a few layers of silvered bubble wrap insulation bonded together with double sided tape that I fit into our skylights on cold nights, plus it does a good job of reducing the heat in our van when the sun is blazing down on the roof although I leave the skylights open then so as not to damage the clear plastic covers. I also fit pads like these between the blinds and the side window in cold weather.
Not noticed any problems with ventilation as we also have ventilation hole in the floor of our van in the under seat lockers.

Thank youI made a similar thing from a block of foam covered in plastic film. It cost me nothing. I made it to silence the vent when travelling. Most vents were made for caravans where travelling noise is not an issue, then used by motorhome manufacturers without that consideration.
Very safe to die in your sleep you won't know anything about it.Thinking more at night in winter months. Would remove in the morning.
If using gas heating.... Don't want to die in our sleep. Is it safe to do?
Oh, we crank up the heat all right. Also, at home, this time of year, for comforts sake, our central heating is on from 7am to 11pm, all day, every day. If nothing else, the wine demands a constant temperature - of course, the roofspace is thickly layered with quality insulation.Seems a lot of hassle if it's that cold just turn the heating up.
