Ok, so the title
is long but I think it makes sense.
In a nut shell, I am using heavy duty suction cups as to anchor a tarp awning
to the top of my Compact II. The whole camper is due for a scrubbing but I cleaned/polished the areas where the suction cups will adhere with barkeeper's. It is now smooth, as opposed to chalky, and the suction cups held great after cleaning it. It was wet when I tested them and I know some recommend using silicone or petroleum jelly to maintain a good seal when using these suction cups on glass panels, metal or tile.
I will just use water to maximize the suction if it seems that any other fluid will stain or degrade the gel coat and fiber glass. But it would be good to have something that wont dry up to make sure adhesion is maintained.
What do you all suggest?
I will post picture of the set up after the weekend trip (assuming amazon doesn't delay delivery of my extending poles again).
