I saw this commerical several weeks ago and thought I was seeing things. Tonight Cindy saw it and confirmed I wasn't nuts.

We were watching the wheel of fortune tonight, on the east coast ABC feed (New York).

It's for NyQuil. The guys were out camping at night next to an RV and one was sick. One guy was saying "you've got hoof and mouth disease", The others-- similiar illnesses, etc. One guy hands the sick guy a bottle of NyQuil and the next morning the sick guy is now driving the RV down the road-- scenery is moving by the drivers window-- all is well!! Except the livingroom slide is fully extended--- Ha.Ha.

If you have DirecTv and distant signal reception, go to channel 387 at 10:30 EST tonight (wed, 03/04/09)-- LA ABC west coast feed. If they run the same commericals you'll see it tonight-- It happens just for a second at the very end of the commerical. Maybe I just have too much time on my hands .

I love it-- Any body else see it?

I've seen the commercial and haven't paid much attention to the slide. Will have to look better next time. Thanks for the heads up Glen

If you go to the Vicks Nyquil website (www.vicks.com/nyquil), you can watch the commercial.

It's true! If you pause the commercial you can easily see the extended slide through the driver's side window.

I noticed that too. There was also a couple of ESPN commercials with comentators and athletes traveling down the road in a motorhome and yes the slide was out also. And they say we don't pay attention to commercials.

Frank P. Martin,

Thanks so much for finding the commercial--- now I don't have to sit around and watch all the commercials on TV to see it again. Outstanding work!!!

I noticed the ESPN one, but not the NyQuil.

Hey, NyQuil must make you feel so good by the next morning, you can do anything! Including drive with the slides extended!

Look closer at the beginning, then the end. That is a Class C (Cab over) and the sides stick out behind the cab. Slide does not appear to be open, but just part of the Class C side. IMHO

Yep! As a former C owner years ago, gotta agree with Wayne on this one.

Best,

It is a class C you're looking at. My son saw it and told me it was the same as his, a Winnebago Access.

Oops!! :good one: But people aren't supposed to notice things like that! That's like watching old Westerns & seeing a Vapor trail in the sky or Tall Elect. poles in the distance!

Wayne M,

Now that I look at the commercial, and can stop play it, I can see it is a class C and it's built that way --- Oops --- .

I'm programmed to Class A's I guess-- Ugh!!

Now, with all that said, one time on a trip with a 3400RL my DW was asked questions about the RV. One of the questions asked was, "Can your go down the highway with the slides out?" She kept her cool and replied that it would not be safe to do that.

Now, with that said, about two weeks later we were home and she came in the house busting up. As she was going down a highway she actually saw a trailer being pulled on a main thorough fare with the slides open. She does not know how far the trailer got before the driver realized it was open.

Talk about "Wide Load Follows/Ahead."

Edited: p.s., I have stopped many a trailer and Coach leaving a CG with their antenna up, so I guess it's just a matter of time before I catch one with a slide out. We did witness a small tt with the slide out and as we passed I honked and he honked and indicated he knew - he was pulling over to the side of the road.

I did have a failure once and the slide came out about 1 foot on the bottom. Brake on motor needed to be set tighter.

Ya mean your supposed to put the slide in when driving? That NyQuil is about 90% alchol. a couple of shots of that stuff and you won't even notice. You do sleep good though.
