Sounds like if you pay the postage half the forum users will mail you theirs!

For the record, I still use mine. The dealer seemed to think water could get in past the seals at the top and upper sides when driving in heavy rain if the slides were allowed to rock outward.

Since I always use mine, so I don't know if that is true.

I quit using mine. What a pain. It was always coming loose. The trim work is not strong enough to hold it. To make matters worse. It came completely out, to the point the orange tag wasn't visible and I thought I had forgotten to install it to start with. I opened the slide almost all the way with it sitting sideways. The edge of the pad managed to scrap the rubber roof enough I had to patch it. I am now trying to figure out what other use it might have in the TT. It is too short to use as a clothes hanger.

I dropped our Flagstaff off at the dealer yesterday for some warranty work and showed him where the slide lock bar is pushing the trim away from the slide. He told me to stop using it! He said they are unnecessary and he has only seen one slide creep out when on the road and that was a hydraulic unit that had a complete pressure loss.
