Funny that RustyJC said to use Jayco bars. I traded my great Designer series 38 RTLS Jayco trailer for a quad slide Triumph 2 years ago. I am using the Jayco bars in the Triumph just like he says. They work great.

By way of update, I ran the control out until the clutch started doing it's thing, then gave the top of the slide a sharp shove, which broke it free w/o damaging anything.

Does someone have a photo of what these Jayco bars look like?

From what I've been reading, this unit would not have come with any accessory locking device. I wonder if that could be due to gear drive vs hydrolic- which I suppose could bleed down over time?

The Jayco Designers we owned had electromechanical (gear-driven) slideouts, and Jayco still supplied the travel bars - probably because they were extremely cautious and conservative. As I said, many Jayco owners never used them and didn't have a problem.
