I was getting tired of having the 4 storage doors under the LR slideout hitting me in the head or back everytime I eiher dumped or tried to get something out of the other 3. I found the company that made the other prop rods (Kencon) and order 4 rods, 4 clips and 8 brackets. The cost for the 4 compartments from them was $36.80 that includes shipping. I had to dig up screws and bought a strip of 1x2" oak to use as spacers. Here is the link for Kencon

Here is a link of pictures on snapfish --- you don't have to sign up, just click view in the upper right.

Hope this helps others. Now I can use the prop sticks that I carred for fire wood.

Yea that is one reason why I mounted it so it will open like the LP tank compatment so that the LR slide will pass over it ----- not thru it

Thanks for the info. I will have to do that on mine also. Have you come up with any other modifications for you MH?

I use a 3/8 threaded rod to hold my doors open now. One time i forgot to put door down and opened slide. I heard the crunch and though OH ****. When i went around to look, I found the rod bent and no damage to the Slide or compartment door. I got lucky.

Yes I posted several on this site. If you don't have an electric element in your water heater, that is a life saver for your LP in the winter months. Also re caulk your shower seams with silicon to prevent leaks -- I had one.

On my 08 Outlaw, there were no cargo door supports on all the doors under the slide including the generator.
After watching the Damon virtual tour video on line and their bragging about all the doors having non-water leaking hinges and supports, I demanded supports on all my other doors from my dealer citing the video and laws against false advertising. The dealer contacted Damon and all my cargo and access doors have supports at no expense to me. The generator, grill & LP door uses prop rods that Damon provided.

Thanks Shellback. I ordered mine yesterday. Had no idea till I saw your post where to buy them. Where did you have your leak at in the shower? Was it along the top?

The shower leak was at the bottom of the left wall as you walk in. I used colored silicon along he seams and no more leaks.

Great idea. I have been using a cut-off broom handle. I'll order a few of these.
