Flapping in the wind

After 2 years, we finished building the trailer for FR. The skirt under the front slide started flapping in the wind about 60 MPH. It was coming away from the trailer up to 7 inches at the bottom. Seems someone forgot to install support brackets. FR was good enough to send them to a local dealer in early May. The dealer claimed I would have to wait until September to get them installed. They were booking that far ahead.
We installed the 4 brackets and have our fingers crossed.
Don't you just love the RV industry! That's right ... September.

Let me guess, is the dealer also telling you it is a 4 hour job?
