Darn. Good idea, modify the check-list time.

I haven't snagged the chair yet but I did crush a dog toy once. Poor little squeeker just didn't squeek anymore. The slidout shows no mercy. Now when I move a slide in or out I check inside and out first then stand by the switch in case an emergency stop is needed. So far only real concern was main slide went out and got to within 1 inch of the top of the site hookup unit which I thought had plenty of clearance. Walked outside and saw that and just thought of what could have happened.

Already fixed my OOOPS!

It took longer for my compressor to fill with air than it did to repair the booboo!

Lucky this time around! Phew!

I'm gonna keep my mouth shut cause as soon as I say something, that something will happen. Well I did booboo a couple of weeks ago. Started the coach and forgot to take the little jack under the steps out and it didn't even hit me till a couple hours later. I sat and asked myself did I really do that?????? Lucky enough nothing happened to the steps. They've been going in and out real nice.

I do not have a class A, but I wonder why, with all the technology and the price of the RVs, can't a simple position sensor (switch) be installed on the seat track to allow slide movement ONLY if the seat is moved out of the way? I know its all about the bottom line but even a warning light at the slide switch would be nice.

It could be done, but you can do it yourself with a simple check list that includes everything.

A warning label above the switch is the best they could do on mine

Guess I'm a member of a fairly large club.
My slide actually bent the little arm on the bottom of the seat that locks
the swivel function, had to bend it back onto place.
Now there is a reminder tag that hangs over the slide switch.

I just watch the slide as it's retracting and I'm standing at the control panel. It's a whole whopping 20 seconds or so, full open to completely closed. If I see it's pushing or rubbing against the drivers seat, I release the button, adjust the seat and go back and push the button again, until the slide is safely in and ready for travel mode.

Mine will have a label as soon as I find a Labeller.

My TV is mid coach and one of the shallow cabinet doors in that location had opened during the drive. It was behind the slide so I didn't see it. Opened the slide and it caught the interior side moulding and popped it off. My solution was to take my trusty heavy duty staple gun and attach a few strips of velcro to reattach it. Works like a charm.
Lucky for me they had only put a few brads in to hold the moulding on and it didn't damage the door. Most of the time I complain about lack of fasteners

The front side moulding on the slide will just graze the drivers seat. I made a organizer to fit on the back of the seat for small things like pens, calculator, index cards remotes etc... and it ripped one of the pockets off. Two hours later I had it repaired. Lesson learned, but I still start to open it sometimes and stop myself ... I should make a small label on slide button to remind myself.. assuming, of course, I remember to read the label
