Joe, Welcome to the forum. Congrats on your MH. Nice choice. Looked at them and I liked them, but my wife won't drive an A so we ordered the C.

Not sure what you mean by supports for slideout. Are you talking about outside or locking for traveling?

Howdy and welcome! Generally speaking, supports are not recommended for slideouts. If your RV should settle with the support in place, the slide could be damaged. Most late model RVs have sufficient built-in reinforcement to easily support the slides they are designed with.

Do not use a slide-out support.

It doesn't help (I tried one) and some day you will forget it is there and damage your slide-out.

Welcome and glad to meet you!

Same here, no supports. If the coach settles, they often do, the supports could put undo stress upward on the slide.
