Adding slidetoppers

I have just received Dometic slide toppers for our 18 293RKDS Eagle fifth wheel. For those of you that have them, are the toppers mounted on your slide flanged of the slide? My largest topper is 150. Jayco response was not to mount on the flange but wondering what folks are actually doing.

The slide topper that I installed mounted to the face of the slide, in the corners of the flanges. It was a Solera and the instructions indicated where to mount it.

Triplebvalp, so you are mounted on the flange rather than the body of the slide. May I ask your model year and type of camper as well as your slide size? Thank you

No ... it was mounted to the face/body of the slide. I see where you might have thought to the flange ... the brackets were on the face/body of the slide butted against the inside corners of the flange(s).

That's how they come from the factory as well.

We got our new Jayco 5'r with Dometic slide toppers from the factory and I recently noticed they're almost level with the slide vs. angled like an awning. I'm wondering if it's just enough to repel water or the reduced height to prevent debris from entering from the sides? It looks nice enough but I've seen other rigs with a more pronounced angle on their slide toppers, so I'm a little curious now.
