My oh my, touchy aren't we. Guess we won't be drinking a beer together in a campground. You probably drink tea and after my having a few, your superior vocabulary would have me totally confused. Cheers....

Blowing Out The Windshield

Sounds like a bunch of atmospheric pressure to me.... And just think what would happen to your coach if you are running the A/C at the same time you tried to put in a slide.... KABOOOOOM....

If people would think about that huge gap on all four sides of the slide when it's opening and closing.

So is this the same coach that tips over if everyone is sitting on the same slide?

Are these the same slides that may not be water tight if they are not completely extended or retracted???

There may be a small nugget of information in the statement.

Personal experience in the 5er with the slide. When putting out the slides the air flow will pull the door shut if only open 5 or 6 inches.

You all are getting into the area off topic with the comic replies not to mention the transgression of the Be Nice Rule here at iRV2.

Let's not go any farther either way please.

Just as a thought was the windshield recently replaced? When I had a windshield replaced on my car they told me not to slam the door with the windows closed for a day or two to be sure the adhesive had set up. On my RV moving a slide in or out allows a great deal of outside air in - really feel it when it is cold outside.

The tech told our friends the windshield had been replaced at some point because it had been blown out when the previous owners brought in the slides.
