Part number for HWH Emergency Slide Retraction Rods

Apparently no one had the information regarding the HWH emergency slide retraction rods on my original post; so I kept bugging Frank at HWH and he was, after considerable, able to come up with the part number for these items. As you may recall, I was searching for rod lengths or part numbers for the 2006 or 2007 (other model years may use the similar threaded rods) curbside dining room slide. If you should ever blow a hydraulic line for this slide you WILL NOT muscle it back in place without these rods. I take that back, you might if you have access to a fork lift.

According to Frank these threaded rods are for their "Universal Level Out" model. They are sold in a set consisting of one smaller diameter and shorter rod to be used to initially lift the slide; the other of larger diameter and much longer to retract the slide once it is lifted. You will need two sets as they are used simultaneously; so you better have two 1/2" ratchets, or similar tool, and a willing partner for this job.

The part number is RAP-92464 and are priced at $38.80 per set, plus the usual shipping and handling. If this sounds a bit pricey; consider that they are not the usual cut threads, but are milled with a special pitch, a nut is welded on one end for your ratchet and are then plated. All in all when you think of what it would be like waiting for the correct replacement hose to be shipped to your dry camp site somewhere out in the boonies; then either you do the install or try to find someone to come to you, this is indeed a bargain.
