Girard Topper Failure, Safety Alert

I'll tip my hand immediately: no topper came off the coach this time, and the failure traces back to a manufacturing error at Beaver that technicians later working on the damage the error caused failed to recognize and repair.

In short, the articulating extrusions to which the fabric is mounted collided with the roller assembly, tearing fabric and causing damage to the extrusion. Per Girard guidance, the extrusion has been removed and discarded, new topper material from Stone Vos will be threaded into the lower (and sole remaining) extrusion.

Here is the link to a more detailed version at FMCA, along with safety recommendations.
