My 1999 Itasca Suncruiser has these big, wrought iron hooks and rings that you hook the slide onto when you close it . . . It won't go ANYWHERE when it's hooked down . . . . they're inside on the floor - one hooks right behind the driver's seat, the other one underneath the cabinet in the kitchen.

we just picked up a used 98 Pace Arrow with 2 slides. The front slide is electric / rack and pinion and has the hooks that GraciesMom mentioned (although I don't think we got anything to actually use as the looks (I didn't see anything that sounded like that) - if anyone has a picture of it, I'd be curious to know what we're suppose to use). The bedroom slide is hydrolic and doesn't have the hooks. We don't have any problems with the front one moving (which would be pretty obvious to just get anything to lock it) but the rear one (hydrolic, no obvious lock) keeps creeping out while we drive.

Does anyone know some how I could make it so it doesn't creep out (we're on the road right now driving AZ to FL so any quick fix will be appreciated)? Dan L, you mentioned something about 'release valve being opened ...'; is that something that would apply to me? What / where is this release valve?

if you read my previous post you will see that my slide would start creeping out immediately after retracting it. if hydraulic pressure is causing your slide to creep out which was the cause of my slide creeping out i guess this would apply to you. hydraulics have a lot of force and will tear up anything you try to restrain the slide with if there is pressure on the system as there was on mine. it initially ripped my newly installed fitting off the floor.
the retract and extend solenoids are mounted on the HWH slide and jack pump and reservoir assembly on my moho. from the rear the retract solenoid is on the left, the extend on the right. they have a small 1/4 inch fitting in the center of the solenoid that can be loosened up to 3.5 turns to de-pressurize the slide hydraulic system.
on my moho, the jacks have solenoids also, but the release mechanism in operated by a "T" handle.

Thanks for the info DAN L, I'll have to search for the solenoids and confirm that this isn't the problem before I try wedging something to keep them closed.
