Good to hear.
I wonder if Solara had an optional 'flat plate' or 'bracket' design that would have spaced the assembly further away from the siding (?). I'm still interested in seeing your photo fix this spring......, others may find it helpful as well.
The reason I asked about the frabic touching the flange is....., after my RV dealer installed my 'Dometic' topper on my 24RBS aluminum sided slide I noticed that my fabric roll was touching the flange face surface. Upon further inspection I found that the bottom three screws on each of the two mounting plates were pulling away from the slide wall.
Looking at the vertical slide flange you can see how the bottom of the mounting plate is 'bowing' outward...:
The mounting plates weren't located per Dometic documents, instead the plates were not located 'snug' (there was a gap) against the top horizontal aluminum siding trim. The top two screws landed into the slide wood framing, the bottom three missed.
I decided to make the fix myself and the RV dealer supplied the material..., didn't have confidence in a dealer fix.
