If you are concerned about screws into the sidewall you have two choices.1,don,t put them on or 2,get adealer to put them on With number 1 you don,t have any holes in your rv,number 2 the dealer can put the holes in your rv and they have insurance.Also you can take your missus out to lunch while they do it and you have no muss or fuss.Good luck with your deciding and either choice wiill be right for you.jeffp a happy campere who does most of the work on his own camper.I have since I bought it new as I think I am more fussy and concerned with the work done on it than those I hire might be.

Seen some mention, but what about the metal enclosures? Worth it? Does debris get down into the enclosure?

Of course in my ideal world, it slides out, gets covered with leaves, sticks, squirrel food droppings, then when sliding in....self cleans with no debris getting into covering.

Am I in a dream world?

Thanks again for all your input. GREAT community here.
Are you talking about the slots in the hard cover filling with debris? If so they do not in my experience. They do prevent the awning fabric from being beaten up by the weather.

Regarding debris collecting on the slide roof with a cover in place, I don't think that's a dream? Our's hasn't been in a situation where it's been extended for weeks at a time, but it certainly has been extended for a few days in the fall with leaves dropping on it on many occasions. It's always functioned as in your dream....

I think the metal enclosures help. I have them on all four of my slide toppers as well as on both automatic awnings. They help "scrape" the leaves off as the slide is retracted. Having said that, I did have a problem with the one on my entry door awning getting fouled with leaves. Winnie took care of it on one of my trips back to the factory. They can get fouled but I've only had it happen that one time and they've gotten a LOT of use.

I also think they LOOK much better than just having the toppers exposed.
