Solar Rock Guards

I just took the window rock guards completely off to clean. I could have sworn that they were sealed pretty tight against my trailer body. However, when I put them back on, there is a huge gap at the top. Did I do something wrong?

I don't know what your's looked like prior to removal but all the ones I've seen have gaps. I doubt you did anything wrong.

Mine have similar gaps at the top.

Were I of a cynical bent, I would believe that the gap on the top is DESIGNED to allow the accumulation of assorted 'stuff' near the bottom of the guard, such that it ensures the owner eventually notices it's time to open them up and clean the windows. Of course on my rig, the front windows are in the bedroom area, and as such, the curtains are always drawn, and I never have any idea how much 'stuff' has built up.

Reality: I know it's full of 'stuff' in there, and it's on the maintenance schedule for this fall/winter cleanup cycle, i.e. when the weather is nice and I have time...
