New Motohome #2

Thanks to all those who responded to my first post. We did buy our Bay Star 3124 as a 2014 closeout leftover. It had 880 miles. I don't think it had any test drives. It's a 4 hour drive for us and right now the weather is terrible. Hopefully, Jan. 14 will be better for pick-up demo walk thru. After reading some posts, I'm now a little concerned about the full wall slide (FWS). I'm thinking to put the jacks down first, then open the slide. I'll also ask at the demo. Has any had a bad experience?

My recollection is there is a thread discussing the Nemars want to extend the slide before leveling. Only a memory but good to ask at the training school.

We picked up our 2015 Bay Star 3124 in December and drove it home across country over the course of 10 days. We discussed the FWS situation with the dealer and got his opinion. He specifically said put the jacks down first and then the slide out which made sense to us. That is what we had always done with our previous diesel coach. We also always used the slide locks when traveling. We would level, unlock the slide and then put it out. When breaking camp we would pull the slide in, lock the arms, and then pull up the jacks. We never had a problem and never had any trouble with it shifting or any of the clearances changing on it.

The FWS is not that long on the 3124 as compared to one of the diesel motor homes so the worries about problems with it are not quite the same.

This is what I posted in your other thread about your FWS concerns.
You do not have air bags so I would before deploying the slide make sure the gaps of slide on both ends are the same before deploying, after the coach is leveled with the jacks.
If the pad is unleveled do not use AUTO LEVEL, level jacks manually.
If the coach is un-level the slide can creep forward or backward as in a coach with just a smaller living room slide.
