TO MEASURE YOUR MUD FLAP:
1. Park on level ground and set your R.V. motor home to the height for driving.
2. Find the hanging point for your R.V. mud flap.Each R.V. motor home model is different, and we rely on you to find points that the mudflap may hang from. Many R.V.s have empty holes along the frame to attach our supplied eye bolts to for hanging. Some require you to drill holes for installation. If this is necessary, most RV repair companies can do this for you. Some R.V. coach tow hitches are wide enough to have hanging spots on them or a simple place to drill a hole thru
3. Measure from the hanging point to the ground. Subtract 8 inches. This is the normal height you want your mudflap to be.This will leave approximately 3-4 inches for the swing and 4-5″ inches between the mud flap and the ground.
4. Be aware of other obstacles that the mud flap may have to hang below. If these obstacles hang more than 4″ below the bottom of the motorhome, you want to measure and design cut outs around the obstacles, making sure your mud flap will hang no closer than 4″ to the ground. Any closer and your mud flap may hit the ground on uneven surfaces and kick rocks up toward your tow vehicle. These obstacles may influence the 8” subtraction described above. Most mud flaps are 95″ across and 10 – 12″ tall. The average cut out is 2-3″ deep and 36 – 52″ across. The circular dashed lines are for cut outs around rear exhaust pipes. You will not want your mud flap to hang behind the exhaust pipe. The rubber can melt.

To measure the spread for the hanging apparatus:
Find the center of your coach.
Measure from one hanging point to the other. These hanging points will be equal distance from the center. This is the spread.
Our hanging bracket is pre-drilled with several mounting holes to allow you to change hanging points or move the mud flap to a new coach in the future, as long as the length of the mud flap will fit.
