What kind of tape did you use, and how did you use it to attach?

Yes.. wondering about the tape, myself. How well does it stay attached when the aframe is folded down? Especially after a long period.. maybe a month or so. The tape that holds the velcro, that you attach the fabric panels (that hide the hinges on each end) ... always comes loose when folded down.

Comes on really good sticky tape that sticks really well if you clean the surface well so be sure of where you want it before you start. We centered it on the top of the wall.

That's a great idea with the lights! Do you have pictures? Can you show how it was wired?

My fabric panels always came down and I tried using a industrial strength Velcro and it did not help much so in the end I put 3 little screws on both panels and now a year later they are still up and good.

I just re-did our Velcro and it didn't work. We will be using the advice here to fix it for good!

Well, last fall had new Maxxis 8008 LR E tires installed. Replaced spring shackles with hd 1/2 " thick ones and new wet bolts. Bought ceiling vent cushings with aluminum reflectors-helps with heat loss in cold weather(deer hunting) and when hot outside. This year new toilet light-DW loves purple. Two magnetic strip lights-one in the pots and pans cabinet and one under the front door steps opening. Bug screens for the furnace. Reflector pad for our bedroom door window-works great. 1/4 turn valves for water drains-much easier than unscrewing caps. 3.5" clear sewer hose adapter-now can see if the black tank is clean-and the grandkids can watch the show when dumping tanks.
Installed assist bar on inside of front screen door-now I love this bar.
There may be others but that's all I can think of for now.

I forgot to add-I think everything was from info on this forum.

I put a battery operated, motion activated, LED light in the storage under the front bench. So when either door opens, the light comes on. It's lasted about a year on the first set of batteries. Purchased from Super Bright LEDs.
