How do you hold your gen-Turi on? Do you use the double sided tape, rivets or did you use suction cups? If you used suction cups, where did you get them and how big did you use?

Mine came with black straps with hooks on the end and attach to the metal loops that I had attached to MH. Are those not coming with it anymore? I would think the suction cups would work tho.

They do come with them, I was just wondering how most people attach them.

Mine came with double sided tape that I used to attach the brackets with. 5 plus years and they are still there.

I just use a couple of long bungee cords that I attach to the short rubber bungee cords on the Genturi. I stretch the attached bungees under the motorhome ... the one on the left to the spring on my hydraulic jack and the one on the right to the loop on our hitch that I use to connect the car trailer chains to.

Our genturi came with mounts that we can attach to our motorhome with screws or rivets, but I prefer not adding any more holes in our walls than are essentially required.

The little brackets with double sided tape have worked just fine. I did not want to drill into the RV for the rivets if I did not have to. Used for about 10 moths so far including during some heavy wind and rain. So far so good.

I used the double sided tape, along with screws with silicone in the screw holes.

I initially used large suction cups (about 1 1/2 inches) but finally bit the bullet and riveted the little brackets on. The cups worked but would occasionally come off. They also left rings on the side of the m/h.

Cups at local hardware.

The unit is SUPPOSED to come with options. Mine did not (That parts bag was missing)

I got a couple of anchor devices (they look like the letter "J") and bolted them to the side of the rig, painted them to match where they were bolted.. you can see them if you look hard Level of satisfaction in my case is 100%

We use a pair of suction cups (about 2 1/2 inches across). We got them at a flea market someplace.

I bought a couple of stainless eye loops and attached them with stainless screws. Few would ever notice them when they're not in use.

My GT is home made. I used some surplus 3/16 aluminum stock and metal pipe strap (available at lowes or home depot) to make a standoff. It fastens to suction cups, purchased at a drug store or hardware store, and around the up pipe of the GT.

This seems to avoid the pipe touching my awning or coach with the up pipe and avoids rattling sounds.

Mine is homemade also. Suction cups were frustrating (fell off occasionally). My intent is to next try the 3M removable hanging brackets (the kind where the actual hook can be taken off of the backing when not being used). Should work (the adhesive is really strong) and can be removed with no, or little, remaining mark.

I used the double face tape instead of rivits. If you clean both surfaces first, they will hold fine.
