ODM has a decent guide for the placement of the new mounting hardware. Click on "AS Parts", then "Segment Protectors", then "Hardware" once you get into their website.
I found the mounting to be an easy two person job. Used Stainless Steel Screws instead of any type of rivets and Acryl R to seal all holes and as a sealant around all of the mounting flanges. Figured the AcrylR would prevent the screws from backing out, plus, they are easy to inspect since they are fully presented whenever the unit is washed. I actually had a few rivets installed when I decided to go with the SS screws...drilled out the rivets and went with an all screwed installation.
There are at least three different types of segment protectors offered...I really wanted the taller mount, but the original designed for the trailer certainly looks and fits much better.
