Winnebago towable slideouts!

After getting our new Winnebago Winnie 2201DS home, I started reading through the literature. Now, the dealer did a good job on our delivery walk-thru, but I was suprised to find in the Winnebago manual directions to leave the slide-out power switch "on" while towing the unit. I double checked this with Winnebago and they confirmed that when towing, leave the switch "on". So, I thought I would post this for the benefit of others towing the new Winnebago towables.

Amazing at the info you will find when you rear the operators manual.

Our Cameo is the same way. The motor has an electric brake to keep the slide out motor locked when not operating. When parked, shut down the power switches.

Manual operation of slideout

Did they mention that the only way to get the slideout in our out manually is to push or pull it in, but to do so you must first disconnect both electrical connections to the slide motor.

I don't think that's the case with my unit. I have a crank to use...gotta double check that when I get it out for a shakedown cruise next week. But, the Winnebago manual states that there is a crank and access is on the wall opposite the slide out.
