Mud flaps

Has anyone added mud flaps to their AS - especially on the side with the dump valves? I read about someone whose tires threw a rock into the dump valve assembly and made a horrible mess out of the assembly.

I have never seen a trailer with them but it seems like a reasonable idea even if all it does is keep the dump valve handles and pipe cap clean of mud.

I've considered it. It would be fairly easy given that an outrigger is right there at the back of the rear wheel well. I would think some good caulk and some self tapping screws could do the trick fairly painlessly and safely without allowing moisture to get into and beyond the outrigger, rusting/rotting it and the surrounding areas.

Sounds like a great idea. All that stuff looks really vulnerable to me.

Reminds me of the idea of wrapping all the propane lines under the trailer with a covering—I imagine any kind of flexible tubing slit horizontally would work—hose clamps could hold it in place.
