I have a 40'MDTS and I also have leaky connections between the AC unit and the duct work. When repairs were made, did you use grey duct tape or aluminum tape?

I would like to know if you can put the slideouts out when the down riggers are not down? And also when the coach is not level. At delivery I was told that the coach had to be level and down riggers had to be down. When we stay at a Wal-Mart I would like to put slides out without leveling. I would only do this if the slope is very small.
We also are fulltimers. We just left Wisconsin and are heading to WRV to get some repairs done(wish us luck) and then go to homecoming. We will also be at the rally in Bullhead City, AZ.,would like to see more people attend .

Hello alpine4us:

If you want to move the slides out without leveling the coach you can try to manually lowering the jacks just until the indicator light shows the jacks are down and then try to extend the slides. See you in Bullhead City AZ.

I used the aluminum tape from Home Depot. It has a liner that is easy to remove, and seemed to adhere very well.

I am not sure about the other part.

I believe the slide issue depends on year. T'was a time when the jacks had to be down (or maybe down to a point as Dave suggested) to run out a slide. Don't know what model year that changed.
In our PDI, I was told I could run the slides out w/out jacks down, though the chain slide particularly (flush-floor slide on passenger side) would pose trouble if on much slope.
I was also told I could drive around w/slides out, but it was recommended not to do that (it was my coach, so of course I could do as I pleased, but...)

EngineerMike,

With a flashing yellow light bar, some flags hanging off your coach, and a "Wide Load" sign on the back, you will be all set
