Installation of the Rear Bumper Tie Downs of the HappiJac Truck-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs

Question:

Is there any videos i can look up on exactly how the rear tie downs are installed ? Its the only part of the kit that i have read complaints about on third party RV forums. I see there appears to be some kind of braces for the rear bumper mounting points that i assume attach unseen on the inside of the bumper. But all i can gleen from the pictures is that you drill a hole in the already very flimsy chrome bumper and tighten a nut haha. Thank you!

Unfortunately we do not have a video of the HappiJac Truck-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # LC184089 being installed. The Rear anchors are installed in the end of the bumper. There is no precise mounting location since a variety of bumpers may be installed. The general guidelines are as follows:

1. Mounting location should be as flat & vertical as possible.
2. Be sure no moldings or bumper caps interfere with
the removable coupler.
3. Check back side of selected mounting location to ensure
adequate access for tightening nut.
4. Choose a location approx.2/3 back from the front edge
of the bumper. Center punch and drill a small pilot hole, then
enlarge to 1/2”.
5. Install Anchor Bolt with 2” fender washer, lock washer & nut.

The bumper is then supported by rear bumper braces.
