I installed mine just as you did. mine is under the hitch and protects the tow bar better that way. I am getting some gravel through the areas just on either side of the hitch, as it sags there a little. No toad damage, just more gravel than I expected. I might add two more eye bolts on either side of the hitch to take up some sag slack. Thanks for the information...Stormy 1

I've never seen any gravel on top of the mesh. The two eye bolts in the middle are very close to the hitch so there's not much space for gravel to get by, plus the UltraGuard rubber flap is against the shield. I don't think there's any way rocks could get by there.

One person I spoke to says I don't need it, and suggested I just remove it and not to replace it.

What is the general thoughts of fellow RV owners?
Should I remove it, or does anyone know where I can get a replacement.
You will find that the rock guards will come in two pieces. They will be 48in X 16in or 48x20. If you decide to go this way you can get the 16 in and cut them off if you need to. Rock guard recommends they be 4 in from the ground. I have them on the back of mine and like them. I had to cut mine. Not only do they help with the towed vehicle but also help to keep the dirt off of the MH. Just my cent and half.
