can I mount a small level with screws and still have warranty in tact?

Hello,
I ordered a small level with 2 small screws to mount on my new Rockwood Hardside Camper. I realized that there is a chance such a minor permanent mount might void the warranty. Can someone on this form definitely confirm the general guidelines for external modifications that are considered acceptable by Rockwood? Thank you!!!

Why don't you just use two sided tape to hold it on?
Did mine that way 4 years ago! Still holding!

thank you

Thanks for the tip. I did not know those tapes would hold up that well on the exterior. I'll just do that! But I really am wanting to know if such a basic type of mod would impact the warranty. Appreciate the help! I am new to this.

It probably won't void your warranty "unless" water gets into your screw holes then we'll kiss your warranty goodbye and be watching for the side to de-laminate

Mine levels have been stuck on my A-Frame for several years and not fallen off yet.

Try the self adhesive levels

I've used the Hoppy level with the inch markings on the front and just the plain levels between the axles, both self adhesive for years. They don't go anywhere. Have a new v lite on order and will put them on there too

On our first fifth wheel, the levels were still on after 8 years. When I picked up the current fifth wheel, I had bought new levels, but when we got there for the PDI, the dealer had already installed new levels. This has been 3 seasons so far.
