The generator slide out was a must for me. I keep my window cleaning equipment in there and hose for air. Wouldn't want to keep having to snap and unsnap. This is a set it and forget it until replace it. I know water will get trapped behind it and perhaps the fabric will mold or rot. Just gonna see what it can take and if I need to get a heavier fabric next time. The hard work is done getting the holes and snaps in place and figuring it out. To repeat will be much, much faster.
For the lights, I removed them off their brackets. I needed to trim the fiberglass a little at the ends.....Monaco made it so tight I couldn't even remove the headlamp assemblies when I wanted to replace them recently. Need to have just 1/4 of so total gap. With the lights out, I sliced down the middle and left some little triangle cuts at the ends to allow for a wrap around the inside curve. I screwed a heavy wire around the perimeter leaving about 3-4" from the opening. Using the leather punch that I used to put the snaps on, I put holes in the edge of the flaps about 2 inch apart then threaded a parachute cord through the holes and around the wire to "sew" it on. Ends up looking great and easy to mod.
To connect around the outside edge of the generator, I wanted to find something that could hold the fabric in place with friction. Since it is an inside angle, you really can't attach. On Amazon, I found some above ground pool cover snaps. Plastic 4-5" long, really tough, designed for the elements, and good pressure. I push those on the fabric while holding it tight and it's not going anywhere.
Few more screws and snaps to help tighten the bottom edge. Unusual corner I used more holes and cord to pull things together on the back side.
I can't recommend others do this since I haven't headed down the road yet, but that will come in a week or two....weather permitting here in Montana.
