Just received two FMCA medallions with instructions to mount them on front and rear of MH.

I can probably figure out where to attach the one in the rear, but having a problem with the one in the front. I already have a plate on the front, and no other obvious place to mount the FMCA medallion.

I've seen some MHs with the front medallion attached to the cap, and am wondering how they do that!?

How have others solved this problem?

Since I refuse to drill holes in my coach, what I have done with my FMCA plate is mount three large suction cups with screws to it (one on each side, one on top) and stick it to the inside of the windshield up high.

It is on our second coach and has not ever come loose.

Double-sided mounting tape works. You can buy it from FMCA's medallion supplier company or just go to Walmart or Home Depot and get a roll of the 3M Heavy Duty stuff. Works great.

But I just skipped mounting the FMCA medallion on the front. I have one on the rear, mounted to the ladder posts with wire ties. That's enough.

I think I will as well. Looks good on the back, and who's gonna see it on the front as I tool down a 200' wide interstate

We used the extra holes in our bumper and two sided tape on the back

I used black tie wraps and put the medalion off to the right side on the front grill bars.

Since you have a gas MH, why not take two bolts and put thru the screen on the front of your MH? We have a Holiday Rambler on the W-22 and a screen covers our front opening. (if you do not have a screen, it would be a good ideea to put one up for the bugs and etc that come inside your engine compartment) Then attach the egg to the screen. Ours have the 3/8s inch mesh screen( I think ) I don't believe I would attach any tape to damage the paint IMHO s/Toby

On our previous coach we mounted our medallion to the bottom of the front license plate (they sell mounting brackets to do that) and never had a problem. They don't work on the new coach (different set up for the front plate) so we're still looking for a solution too.
