Think the best thing for the "safety bar" and the front shell is for the bar to remain in the "upright and stored" position.

Old Scout, You got that right!

To be absolutely safe that thing needs to be upright...unless your memory improves with age unlike mine

It will bend something...!

My safety bar doesn't even work right. It won't lay fully down into the proper position. Either the slide doesn't open enough or the bar is too long. Either way, all it will do is punch a hole in the fiberglass, just before it crushes me. Of course I would have to be asleep not to notice it, as it swiftly closes in on me (okay, maybe not so swiftly).

Yeah...thats what I decided, if I can't get out the way of that speedy thing, I must have gone to sleep on the generator.

One thing is certain, it's going to tear something up if it's down and you forget it and try to bring the slide in.

I doubt I'll never lower mine again...
