Also got mine a day or two ago. Looks beautiful!

Now to figure out exactly where to mount it...

Hey Shiny, What's the Bronze composition? I did a lookup and didn't know that there were so many formulations, Aluminum Bronze, Tin Bronze, Silicon Bronze. Sheesh! The reason I ask is to understand how much I need to worry about corrosion if I mount this to the coach.

Got my pair two days ago. The first one will be mounted in the Classic on the wall beside the stove between the custom stainless steel side splash and the exhaust fan. Really like the look and finish. A job well done.

They will all cause corrosion if in direct contact with the aluminum. If mounting to your trailer then I would suggest coating the rear with a few coats urethane clear coat from your auto store. I use a mixture of materials primarily silicone bronze but we do mix this with C23000 for color. so essentially you will have about 85 to 90% copper then some zinc silica trace amounts of iron lead and manganese.

Thanks Much! I have some time to decide where to mount it. It's beautiful! It's the "s" that sealed the deal for me. I like the art deco style.

Have installed our first one in our 2014 31' Classic above the magnetic stainless steel stove side splash.
