I don't recall very well, perhaps that is where I learned that info...

I suppose the distance between the tires being chocked will affect that a bit. Also, on the "non concrete" surfaces there is some settling once in place as part of surface compression. That is minimized in usual manner.

3M Automotive Emblem Tape is what holds most auto trim, badges, emblems, etc on vehicles W/O drilling holes. Just clean both surfaces with alcohol and dry before application. Also works well on glass for camera mounts etc. Comes in various widths. Also 3M Plastic and Emblem Adhesive 08061 in a tube works. If you want to attach interior trim such as upholstery, cloth, carpet, floor mats use 3M Fast Tack Trim Adhesive 08031. If you want to attach vinyls use 3M Vinyl Trim Adhesive 08964. These are readily avaible and perform extremely well as advertised.

On the bubble level consider using 3M VHB 4950 tape, same as used for Lewsters solar installs. Couple of small tabs should hold it fine and you can still get it off if needed.

Had one of the levels on the front when I got the trailer but was broken. Managed to find exact replacement so no new holes.

Two days of 110* skin temp was too much for the 3M tape. The tape literally melted and the level was dropping off. Remounted with screws and sealant. It is adjustable if needed.Click image for larger version

Question

Chief,

Wouldn't drilling holes in the plexy window protector be less stressful?
1/8" stainless machine bolt, nut & washers.

The 3m VHB double sided might have stucked better there also too.

Bob
