Arctic Fox Question

I would suggest that you go to Northwoods Manufacturing (maker of Arctic Fox) site, and post this question on the forum. You will get your answer. I have an Arctic Fox and this site has been very helpful to me. Good Luck

Gad, I am not sure what you are asking, stops? Never heard of anything like that on any modern slide outs. Push the button to go out and push it the other way to go in is all I know. I am sure Ron Nash buys his components from Lippert like almost everyone else.

I believe they are talking about adjustable bars that would be placed inside the unit between the lip on the slide and the outside wall. This is not an automatic lock. They would have to be put in place after the silde was brougkt in and then removed before extending the slide. I believe that most owners do not use them after delivery from the factory.

Have you tried to move the slide? Our Nash has a round bar that we put at the front end (I think it was supposed to go on the top but end is easier). If it is in place when you try to move the slide it will activate the slip clutch (at least in our case) and make a noise. If you don't have one it should move.

There must be 1 or 2 bars (we got 2 but only use 1) in place on either end or top. Reach over the top and down until you feel the top of slide and go across the slide and the same on the ends. The rod we have is about an inch in dia with rubber tips on the ends and the length is about the same as the slide travel. It is a tight fit when properly placed.

To my knowledge, Northwood Manufacturing (makers of Arctic Fox, Nash, and Desert Fox) never made a Class A.
