You have the arm on the roller tube! Do you have the wedge on the side of the RV, and is it adjusted right?

check here page 8 and 9

How and where did you attach the bungees?

Thanks. My only question is , is this an automatic locking device or do you have to manually set the lever ?

If the lock are adjusted correctly they are automatic. When the slide is all the way in the arm should hit a stop if the slide top tries to unfurl. I can get some pics tomorrow if you think they would help.

Yes, thanks, that would help.

The only place we could do it was at the very ends approx. two to three inches from the end.

Oh, and mine has the automatic locking bar as well. Sometimes, when the wind is SO strong and comes at just the wrong direction, it will not make any difference. The locking "bar" on mine looks like a thumb sticking up in the air. It rotates when the awning goes out and comes in, "locking" in place against a bracket located on the side of the MH.

I figured that the locking arm wouldn't work in all wind conditions. Thanks for the bungee idea but where did you secure them ? I get that they go on either side.

The only bungees I had were the type that had balls on the end and were "looped" so that you twisted the bungee around the end of the awning twice and looped the ball inside the loop to lock it in place. These are not heavy weight but were the only one's I had available and they did the job. They are normally used to keep drawers (like medicine cabinets) and shelves closed while on the road.

I have some of those. I can't seem to visualize how they would keep the slide topper from unfurling. Oh well , we'll just have to park it next time there are winds like these. Only trouble is they have been blowing here in NM non stop since Wed.
