Gravel Guard Problems

Has anyone had gravel guard problems. I have a 19 ft. Bambi with the driver side gravel guard that doesn't want to stay on. It was repaired once, by an experienced Airstream person, but came off again. I think the 18 wheelers passing by has some effects on the damage, but I wanted to throw out the question prior to me reinventing the Gravel Guard. Any ideas? Thanks.

guard..

Does it have the center support at the top of the guard? This was a common problem and Airstream fixed the problem by adding a top support in the curve of the stainless/steel segment protector.

Get the running gear properly balanced and/or reduce the rating of your hitch bars, and/or reduce or eliminate over load springs.

Those things cause vibration, which make the segment protectors come loose.
