    The kit arrived yesterday and there is a pack of 4 self adhesive pads in the fitting kit but no info as to where they are supposed to be used.
    Any ideas?
    I was wondering if they were to place between the dish and the motor unit to reduce vibration

    they are just little pads to stop scratching/slipage when used portable.
    made an alloy plate & bonded mine to the roof, it can be unscrewed leaving the plate behind if needed
    it shows the pads fitting on page 7.

    Thanks, that's what I thought.
    My concern is that when fixed on the roof in the home position there is a bit of movement up and down between the box and the motor housing.
    My previous system had a bump stop that rested on the roof making it quite a tight fitting.
    I was just a bit concerned that on some of the rough terrain we've been over this year the vibration might damage the unit. I was wondering if placing a couple of the pads between the box and the motor might ease the problem.
