deficiency is the front window's rock guard. To get light
thru the front window you have to remove the rock guard where as our previous trailer had support arms on the guard and could be set to shade the window while letting light
At our first Egg Rally
we saw at least one clever solution but I could not remember how it was exceuted so I came up with this solution.
It consists of two pieces of plastic pipe with a bungee cord running thru the center of each pipe. Each end of the bungee has a hook on it. The purpose of the bungee cord is to provide positive tension.
The top end of the pipe simply fits in the tensioning loop of the locking mechanism. The top end of the bungee cord attaches to the guard's lock's lock hole.
I drilled a hole thru the belly band and stuck a 3" screw thru the belly band. The top side of the screw has a nut on it and so does the bottom side.
The plastic pipe sits on the head of the screw. The bottom end of the bungee cord attaches to the bottom of the screw. The screws are embedded in window caulk.
You'll note that another bungee cord runs across the top surface of the rockguard from the top catch to the guard's locking mechanism. The purpose of this 'not too clever' bungee is to keep the rock guard from lifting off the top latch points. Hopefully at some point I'll come up with a clever solution for this eliminating these two bungee cords.
In my Bounder group I was known as Bungee Boy. In my mind Bungees are right up their with Duct Tape.
