Rear wheel cover

I had the right wheel cover come off last year pulling the valve stem out of one tire. Also damaged the wheel well trim. Forest River replaced all the damaged parts free of charge. Now I notice the wheel cover on the rear driver side is loose. You can pull it off by hand and that's only using one finger. Looks like they did a poor job designing these covers. I put a couple of tie wraps to hold it on for now. Guess I'll be looking for some bolt on ones soon.

I wonder if there is a difference between the 2011 and the 2013 I have the 2013 and haven't noticed any problem with my let, I have 15000 miles on it.

Not sure about the 2013. Now the replacement one I was sent fir the right side is very tight. You have to pry it off.

I have a very loose one on my 2013. I use the metal traps to hold in place. Not a good retention system, they can rotate in the grove of the wheel. FR needs a better design.
