I met someone at the 2010 Coloma, Ca rally who made and sold SS segment protectors, but have lost his card. Anyone know of him?

Ha, having had both of my segment protectors on my '94 Excella Classic go flying away I am seeing that I am not alone...seems to be somewhat common.

A little research points to bad fasteners.

Typically, they seem to go bad from vibrations caused, not always, but usually, excessive rated tow vehicles and excessive rated hitch torsion bars.

The DZUS fasteners can be doubled up, for additional traveling security for the segment protectors.

I'll see what I can come up with, in the next couple of weeks, if anything.

Interesting... I do tow with a Silverado 3500 HD duallie and I have been running at faster than normal speeds out here in the SW. Whatever happened something has been allowing the top edge of the segment protectors to rub and hit the front panels as with them gone I see some significant wear. If I get the taller ones this damage will be covered up.

Andy, does the price on your site reflect a set of segment protectors? I've been under the impression it was just per side. If it's a set I am going to talk it over with the wife. Are's are so terrible looking, and the PO painted them "really poorly" and I know this is something we'd like to get. But at that price per side, it's a lil difficult. Not asking you to disclose a price openly in a thread though. So no worries.

Need segment protector surround molding

While driving back from NC last month, I noticed in my mirror that the curbside segment protector was vibrating. The PO of our trailer backed into it with his TV, but I didn't notice any damage other than a dent in the curbside lower front segment.

Apparently the aluminum C-molding around the stainless protector was cracked. Now it has completely failed and the protector is vibrating at highway speeds and contacting the segment resulting in an area about 1/4" x 1.5" where the segment looks like it has been sandblasted.

I guess I'll ultimately have to replace the segment, but I need to repair the protector NOW. Is the aluminum surround molding available anywhere? It appears to just be a C-shaped section that is attached (adhesive?) to the perimeter of the stainless sheet.

Thanks,

Al
