Rear Mud/rock guard Flap

I know many have removed the advertisement hanging under their Newmar, myself included on my 18 Dutch star. Iíve spent a good amount of time trying to find the answer to my question but havent found it yet.

With the rear rock guard/mud flap gone, my toad gets extremely dirty when it rains. I donít think there has been any damage from rocks or debris but I havenít been able to test in the rain with it installed and the toad behind it. I will say that when we were driving home last weekend in the rain, it looked like two jets of water spraying the front of the car.

Is this par for the course on any coach with and without the flap? Is it worth putting back on or should I just leave it off? Maybe look for another solution like the Towtector?

We have owned 1 Essex and 2 London Aire's with and without rock guard and have found no difference with either stone protection and heavy dirt from rain with or without. We have always had some cover on tow with all 3. Don't think it makes any difference either way. Will be interesting to see what other owners have to say.

Copy that! Itíll be staying off on our coach. It does seem to stay cleaner because the airflow isnít interrupted.

Thx all for the feedback!
