Looks like it will be another year...

I was all set to make a mount for my tailgater that would allow me to attach it to any of the four corners of my trailer when I thought I should check with King Products. It seems that inserting screws into the four holes in the bottom of the tailgater would void my warranty, so it looks like it will be next August when my one year warranty expires before I can continue with my plans for a mount.

Are the holes threaded or do you need to drill then thru and use screws or bolts to mount it?

The holes are existing just need to be tapped.

There are 4 hollow stand offs molded in the bottom of the Tailgater. Takes about 5 minutes to run a 1/4-20UNC tap about 1" deep. A bottoming tap works best.

When I spoke with the tech man at King Products he told me that when a Tailgater is returned for warranty they go over it with a fine tooth comb looking for anything that will void the warranty. It seems to me it would be much less likely to suffer damage if it is secured like OldCoots as opposed to setting on the ground.
