Banging head on bedroom slide

Looking for some good tips - we recently purchased a newer 5th wheel with a bedroom slide. My Brother walked around the side of it and practically knocked himself out. What type of padding can you put on it so that doesn't happen to someone else?

Camping outlets/ Rv supplies sell corner pads. People use the long colored swimming noodles, by cutting them down the middle and placing them over the exposed edges of the slide out.

X 2 on this one. Have seen plenty in our park on the corner edges of the slide outs.

Hang a few strips of survey ribbon on it to make it more visible.

Easy solution is to wear a football helmet. Next, grow a shorter brother and finally, put the trailer on blocks so that it is higher than his head.....:dan ce:

Lengths of foam pipe insulation available at Home Depot or Lowes work well over the corners of the slideout as well.

Perhaps your brother could benefit from one of these protective suits:
