ACE 30.2 SLide Out Lock

I have an ACE 30.2. Just found a Slide out Lock in the storage above the refrigerator. I did not get an instruction on its use. I assume is to be placed inside the RV somewhere between the slideout and wall. Does anybody know where this goes. The instruction manual says to use it but does not explain where it is to be placed.

Thanks.

if your talking about the metal adjustable rod with a square pad on each end we have one with our ace. after we bring in the slide we position it up between the top corner of the slide and the wall right behind the drivers seat. it keeps the slide from rattling while driving down the road.

Just make sure you place it against the metal bracket on the slide.
During my walk-through the tech brought the slide in and commenced placing it between the wall and the top corner of the slide...against the wood trim. As he torqued it the trim starting cracking and bowing!!!!

I was like, "Whoa, whoa, whoa!" I asked if there was a piece of metal or a bracket or something it was to go up against. Sure enough it was along the bottom corner near the floor.

Also, if you don't use the slides for a month at a time press the retract buttons for a few seconds. Slides tend to creep out after time.

On my 29.2 it goes on the top/center of the slide. I never use mine, I'm afraid I'll forget it's there and extend the slide.

As in above the slide? I assume you need a stool to get up there.
That IS weird.

Keep that handy. When my bedroom slide failed I needed it to keep the slide closed while driving. Don't leave that at home! I had to use it on my bedroom slide. I used it right in the top/middle.
