Perhaps. It could also explain why, when I asked a couple of questions which apparently made the manufacturer uncomfortable (they had no answers), my posts were deleted. This was the original Oliver forum; I believe that it has been replaced since.

When you're cheerleading you don't wear your flower hat?

One of these days I'm going to buy one of those goofy hats. Maybe at Halloween time

I have a 2014 5.0TA that I had AM Solar in Oregon install 4 100w panels in Oct/2014....They attached the panels (without any drilling into the fiberglass) with double sided 3M tape with a layer of self-leveling Dicor to prevent moisture getting to the tape and covering the brackets. I have had no issues at all with the panels or the mounts.
You can read about their process at amsolar.com on the home page go to RV Solar Education---and under topics go to Mounts.

Escape does not own this forum. And we have freedom of speech.

This is obviously the Escape Trailer Sales Floor. When it should be a place we can all share opinions.

PS - the post was simply a comparison based on his experience.

Good to hear, as some are "weekenders" with a lot less. May give them a call for a quote. Klem's fix sounds great but I'm asking myself why I should do this work while under warranty.
