What is this bracket?

This bracket is on the passenger side of the coach near the top of the bedroom slide. In the red circle. There is only one bracket on one side of the slide. What is it for?

It is your topper awing stop... Pull your slide in and you will see where it fits.

I think it's a stop for your awning, there should be a arm on your awning roll-up tube that will stop the awning from moving when the slide is closed.

Thank you very much. There is nothing on the slide roller to hook into that bracket. I'm going to search to find the locking bracket you speak of.

It's an "anti-billow" bracket. You can see it on page 8 of the installation instructions here.

With the slide in travel mode the "arm" should not be in contact with the anti billow stop. The stop should be positioned such that if the awning starts to unroll (billow) in the wind the arm will be stopped after 45 deg by the bracket. In other words t is a safety device and if properly installed it will seem unused.

THANKS to all of you that answered my question about this 'bracket'. With all this information and the links I now know why it is riveted to the side of my RV. I just went out this morning and checked it per the Instructions linked by Mr_D, and it does work exactly as you all said it should. Some good information to know. It is a very good thing to have and I didn't even know I had it installed.

I had both slide toppers replaced when I bought the coach in April of 2010, and they put the locking 'handle' in the correct location. I'm not sure if it was expertise or luck, but they stop the roller after about 1/4 turn. Thanks again, Wayne
