Slide out blocker

Hi there

I don't know the proper name for this but it is an adjustable ratchet bar that u use to put up on your slide out to keep the slide from moving while driving.

I need to purchase one but no one carries them at any of the camping worlds in 15 states that we have been in.

Going to order on line but can't find them assuming due to me not calling it by the proper name.

Thanks

Sam

I'm not sure where you buy those, but I've never used them. I'm afraid I forget to remove it when I deploy the slide-out. I've never had any issues with the slide-out opening while driving.

Our rig came with a ratchet strap and attachment on the floor and slide room to hold the slide in. When we had the carpet replaced I didn't bother to put the floor bracket back.

If you really want whatever was on the MH I would try contacting the manufacturer. An alternative might be to cut a piece of lumber the same length as the distance between the top and the wall when it is retracted and put it up there while moving if that makes any sense. The problem then is remembering to remove it.

Ditto. I've had my electric slide locks fail while on a trip and done this. Works fine, just don't forget to remove them before extending the slides.

It is a slide lock bar but you might find something that will work as well at a truck stop.. Cargo bar.

Thanks all

My situation is that the bump out continues to swing out a bit and while in Cali we went over an extreme hidden bump and the bump out swung way out then came back in and got wedged inside the bus on one side. So it was stuck angled. Ugh

Found a place to get it unstuck but the bump out was now broken

We had to wait till we had some down time and back in pa to have it fixed. Goes in tomorrow.
We had been using a piece of wood since the incident and hat worked just fine.
But want to get the actual bump out blocker. Nicer then a piece of wood

The truck stops have similar things but nothing small enough.

I'll keep searching.
Was hoping to get one while here in the area before we head back out on the road.
We will be on the road for another 7-8 months.

Thx again for your responses

Sam

Wood cut to the right size would be the cheapest.

Or these...

Oh and, if you are the type that may forget things at times, get 4 and put them in all 4 corners. If you try to extend the slide with them still in place, the possibility of damage is greatly reduced for that half a second it takes to react to the straining noise from the slide motor..

I use mine religiously on my large slide. To prevent forgetting about it, I placed a red dot on the large slide out button that reminds me.

I use 2 pieces of pipe with rubber feet over the ends. And to help the "Old Timers" I have 2 feet of red ribbon on the ends that flow the lip of the slide. Very Visible!!!
