2 After reviewing all potential interior and exterior wall obstructions, locate the Pod mounting line by using a stud finder. Turn off all utilities. Step 1

3 Using a straight edge or chalk line, mark a Pod mounting line. Note: Pod spacing is determined by the accessory being mounted. Some accessories will require 16 spacing, some accessories will require 12 spacing, some accessories will require no spacing (single pod). Step 2

4

5 Using the provided template, mark the first Pod location with a bulls eye. Hold the template to the mounting spot, and punch the four starter holes with a center punch. Step 3

7 Be careful to only drill into the outer section of the smooth fiberglass wall! Drill the small vertical pilot holes for the backing plate using a 1/16 drill bit. Drill the large horizontal holes for the pod using the 3/8 drill bit. Tip: We recommend applying masking tape to the drill bits to mark the desired depth and to prevent drilling too deep. Step 4

9 Prepare the mounting area by lightly sanding the fiberglass between the drilled holes, as shown. Clean the surface of the wall. Step 5

11 Apply a thin coat of the waterproof adhesive (provided) onto the inside area of the backing plate. Spread evenly to ensure complete coverage. Step 6

12

13 Insert backing plate into the holes. If necessary, lightly tap the backing plate with a rubber mallet to ensure that the plate is flush against the RV wall. Wipe off any excess adhesive with a paper towel. Step 7

14

15 Reinforce plate with the two small #6 x ½ screws. These are set screws and prevent the backing plate from moving while the adhesive cures and sets prior to the installation of the pod. Step 8

16

17 Attach the Pod assembly onto the backing plate using the larger ¼- 20 screws after the Pod adhesive has cured completely (24-48 hours). Step 9

18

19 Finished! The SMART RV accessories can now be safely mounted. When Pods are not is use, you can cover the Pods with the Pod covers, included.
