I would like to self install an Ultra Guard on my WH chassis and would like to know if anyone else has done that.

Looking for specifics; e.g., how difficult, do I need the angled steel kit (sold separately), and any other advice.

Hey Double-naught 7!

I did a search before posting, and found several references. However, didn't find anything that specifically mentioned self-installation.

Can you tell me how the angle iron is attached to your chassis?

Just checked in rain for you, two chains welded to steel welded square tubing. You could use bolts thru steel tubing to hold up chains.
With chains shield will move over uneven ground if it rides over it.

Went to the Winne dealer and looked at how the factory installed guards are attatched.

Obtained a piece of angle iron, drilled some holes and installed the guard with quick links. Inspect the 'wear points' each month. Has held for 50,000 miles.

Did it all self installed, got dirty and scratched my hand.

Go for it and wear some gloves.

Thanks for the time and inconvenience!

I think I would probably have to drill into the chassis rails to install tubing or angle iron. Seems like I read somewhere that it isn't wise to weld on the finished chassis.

Wish we had some rain!

Can't stand gloves! My fingers don't work properly when wearing them. You can probaby guess how many scars I have to prove it too.

Freddy, I actually installed an ultra-guard shield on my previous coach (2003 Sightseer). I bolted the angled steel kit to the frame and mounted the guard to it. It wasn't difficult; make sure you have a good drill and very good drill bit. My guard held up very well.
