Check bolt tightness on your slide toppers!

I was on top of the rig today checking things over and was rolling back the fabric slide topper material to check a tear when the entire assembly moved in my hand. Turns out the bolts attaching the assembly to the rig were loose on both ends. Went around the rig and found several more; just something else to think about!

What kind of toppers do you have?

Do you think you could take a picture of one of these areas so we can see the bolts your talking about?

BTW...do yourself and us a favor by putting your MH and Toad information into your signature
This will really help in all your future posts, so you won't have to type it in each time.
You do this by:
1) Going to the top of this page and click the top left tab named “User CP”
2) Look at the menu on the left and scroll down to “Settings & Options” and click “Edit Signature”
3) In that text box type all the information about your MH, Year, model, length, mileage, any aftermarket extras installed, your toad and so on.

I clicked on the OPs avatar and found everything pertinent to his post.
To the OP, thanks for the tip. I need to go topside!
