Fender Skirts

From past experience of replacing the fender Skirts on our previous Crusader I was wondering if you have had any problems with the fender skirts on a 3121rl. My concern is that wind catches them and rips them off. I have already reinforced the leading edge of the skirt with foil type adhesive tape. Am I worrying about something that may never happen? Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Many have put speed nuts on the screws to keep them from backing out.

I lost two fender skirts which were replaced under warranty which had backing retainers installed by CW. When possible I would certainly install some type of retainer.

I used nuts/bolts with proper washers to reinforce.

I used stainless steel screws,flat washers, and locking nylon nuts. Been there 4 years with no problem.

I just put a dab of silicone on the screw threads on all screws in sheet metal.

Mine also we "open" like that, I was able to push them flush as the bracket behind it is flexible metal.
