TO ANSWER SOME OF Swag's concerns:
If this is the case, why are the Newmar techs telling owners to use the new procedure for coaches without a FWS? I'm not being critical of anyone who is posted, seems that instruction coming from Newmar and the dealerships is all over the map.

If they are, "TECH's" some of us would want to know why also, all other slides not FWS have deployed the 1 to 4 slides after leveling the coach on jacks both DP's and Gas.

I have not seen any change in the new slide manuals of a change for standard 1 to 4 slides.
The old slide manual, if you happen to read through both slide spec's they do not even mention deploying the jacks first.

The reason most of us level coach with the jacks first is that if coach is on a slop and when deploying the slides the slide may creep forward or backward with the slope.
To eliminate that from happening we level the coach with the jacks first than deploy the slides, 1 or up to 4 slides.

The only mention of leveling the coach first is this caution in a Owners Guide.

Page 8.3 of this and other Owners Guides.

------CAUTION for 1 to 4 slides
[URL="It is recommended that the leveling jacks be extended and the unit level before operating the slide out. Note: This slide"]It is recommended that the leveling jacks be extended and the unit level before operating the slide out. [/URL]

For people with 1 to 4 slides you need to correct the Tech's that are giving you the bum information the OWNERS GUIDES have had it correct since the first slide produced by Newmar.

I hope the light is beginning to shine as far as the FULL WALL SLIDE'S that people own, the procedure Newmar has come up with is what they should be using to stay out of trouble.
