I lock the main salon slide on the front, the others I don't bother with. The reason I lock the one right behind my head is that it rattles unless it's locked

I don't understand why anyone would not use them. They are there for a reason, and it only takes 1-2 minutes (at most) to lock them.

We don't have them and recently I wished I did. It turned out we blew a hydraulic hose while on the road and our front slide started to open on its own. Fortunately the system functioned well enough for us to be able to stop a few times and close it. Having a locking mechanism would have been nice.

We are all of course, subject to " Murphy's Law " chances are if there is a safety device in your unit It's there because.....! If the unforseen hapens and your not using them ; what re-course would you have ? Sue the PDI guy ? Chances are poor that you could ever find him and if Newmar finds out he is advising owners not to use a safety device...you won't.

Monaco has no information on slide locks for my 2004 Monaco Camelot.I have looked in my manuals they show nothing. Anyone know what was used? I bought this unit last year from private owner he did not know what slide locks where, it was his first RV. I also never had slide outs before. This unit is electric on all 3 slides. Thanks if any one can help.

You might have better results asking on the Monaco site.
