    Hi @Tow'd hauler,

    See attached photo. We have changed our skirt attachment method after receiving reports similar to yours. We now use a flat steel plate secured to the slide room support tube. This plate is glued with construction adhesive to the skirt, providing a rigid attachment.

    Best regards,
    ~ Janice
