The shear pins that Power Gear sent me were made from 1/4" grade 8 bolts with some of the threads ground off. I have sheared one when the slide topper got caught at the top of the slide.
The precious owner also had the same bolt shear. From the look of the hardware other owners have also had problems.

Now we always flap any water off the topper and have someone checking that the topper doesn't get caught while closing the slide.

My parents have a 2007 CC 36' Inspire 4 slides. They have broken 2 shear bolts in the rear slide out passenger side with closet/chest of drawers in 2 weeks. I know my dad replaced with a grade 8. I do not know if he closing this one last &/or if he has a window open. This coach is new to them this past January. Any help would be appreciated. What is the proper way to close/open these slides? He told me there are stops on the bottom of the other 3 slides, this slide has welded on nuts but no stop bolts. Doesn't appear that there have ever been stop bolts in this slide. Is this normal?
