Verona LE Slide Stops

I am hauling around three of these things that are supposed to prevent a slide from deploying when under way. I assume they were used for the trip from the factory to the dealer.

Where are they placed if ever needed?

I keep mine in the basement under the inverter. In the event of slide mechanism failure they would be available to keep the slide in. They are installed on the inside between the slide flange and the outside wall to keep the slide from moving out. I don't use them unless needed.

RonLC: Luke previous posters my three are left in the basement. I am sure in reality we all should utilize them since I have heard of slides on very rare occasions sliding open on the road. I did try to fit one on the biggest slide but to be honest no matter how far I extended it I could not make it work well. I worry that my wife ( not me of course) would try to open the slide with out removing the stop and would rip the trim off the slide. I think I will just gamble!

Iím with yíall. I have mine stored for the same reason. I would forget to remove them and then try deploying the slides leading to a flurry of cussing at myself for being so stupid.

Don't quite understand. Where would I be standing where I could lean forward and put one in place?

Thanks

Ronlc. With the slides in, you place the slide locks between the wall and the edge of the slide. That will mechanicly hold your slides in. You do this from inside your coach. In a previous rv these locks were invaluable as the slides always deployed while driving.

Mine are solidly in garage as well. In 25 years of RV'ing I have never used slide lock bars. Only once have I ever had a slide creep out while traveling, and that was do to a failed pump on a hydraulic system. And at that it only moved a few inches, not like it opened fully.

Mine are also safely stored in my garage now.

I thought I could use them in a couple lockers to prevent things from shifting and scratching the door but was uncomfortable with the pressure they exerted on the locker side walls. So, they retired to the garage looking to be re-purposed someday.

I am always checking the mirrors while underway and do watch for any sign of "slide creep". If I see any "creep" I'll deal with it but it's never happened to me, although you can always find someone who has had a bad experience.
