PUG ears

reading from some posts that the Pop Up Gizmo ears do not attach real firmly with the stick on to the side of the camper. I have a Roo 183 with fiberglass sides.

Before i spend $80 bucks on the kit, can someone give me some feedback on this? This is making me wonder if the stick on is strong enough to hold the ears and the velcro ties? And if this is an issue, what have you been able to do to create a stronger bond? Of course, it would be ideal if everyone's feedback is that this isn't an issue, but would appreciate any feedback....

geez, my PUG ears are holding tight (i installed them some years ago). you do have to use the provided sandpaper to rough up the spot a bit. i put the first set on upside down - realized it as soon as i attached it (arrow points DOWN not UP) but was not able to fix it. it still works even upside down.

We bought the Pug Ears with the Pugs about two years ago and they are still holding firm. As GalsofEscape wrote, surface prep is everything! Also, in our case, the TT does not sit in the sun when parked in the summer and is stored inside during the winter. We live in an area with cooler temperatures.
