really dumb question

ok, i feel really stupid for posting this...
I got my license plate in the mail for my new X18D, and I went to put it on my trailer expecting to find a mounting bracket like my old PUP had. All I can see are 2 tabs under the left tail light. How do you mount the plate to that? I could put a couple bolts in the tabs, but wouldn't the plate flop around and scratch the trailer up? I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.

Nope. You didn't miss a thing. That's where the plate is mounted. Our Pup is the same. So was the last pup we had. Never had a problem with scratching.

Our 22FB is the same no problems. Make sure the bolts are tight.

You'll notice once the plate is attached, it sits at an angle up & away from the camper body. I have the same bracket/light assembly on our pup.

You can find Nylon Bolts and nuts at the hardware store to keep from scratching

Must be a Jayco standard, my 300Rlts has the same bracket. I just turned my bolts out with the nut facing out and so far scaring up the RV has not been a problem.

Mine is the same also. I used bolts with a smooth round head and had that part on the back of the bracket.
