I think the only people that haven't done it are:

- The people who said they haven't and lied.
- The people who bought a new coach and haven't used the slide switch yet.
- The people who own a coach with no slides.


Or the coaches that have a lockout mechanism that won't allow the slides to retract unless the seats are in the forward position. However that being said... i wont lie. It happened to us than once on our previous coach. Luckily with no damage.

Ahhh! Got it!

It wasn't very clear as to what you needed but I understand now.

You need a Marinco 50 amp Easy Lock Male Inlet.

I assume that your 50 amp cord set is undamaged on BOTH ends.

Thanks Richard
That looks like what I need but mine is a bayonet style with a locking ring. I just need the flip up cover.

I doubt very much that you will find JUST the cover. If you look closer at the photo by clicking on it you will see that there are threads on the outside which accommodates your locking ring.

First mistake - slide out with drivers seat not forward

On our current Winnebago DP while putting the FWS out, I got a sneaker caught between the wall and the wood trim on the slide. The shoe pushed the screwed on molding completely off the slide. :(

It looked far worse than it was. I was able to screw it back on and looks good as new now. The sneaker is a little worse off now though.

We double check the floor area there now every time we deploy that slide.

On our previous MH, I was installing some wiring for our Toad brakes. I sat in the driver's seat to test my competed work and forgot that I had a screwdriver in my back pocket. That hole bugged me EVERY time I got in the MH. We all do dumb things...

Speaking of Dymo labels... Above my Deploy switch are these stickies... Yes, they're in ALL CAPS with exclamation points:

PETS!
D/SEAT!
AIR DUMP!

And above the Retract switch:

PETS!
D/SEAT!
AIR UP!
SHORE POWER/WATER/SEWER/CABLE!
AWNINGS!

My own guideline: Disconnect AFTER a 2nd cup!
