If you brought the "Above Floor Slide" in with the Manual wrench/nut/drive the slide Will stay in place because of the Gearbox reduction gears! Youroo!!

OK, case closed on Lippert Above Floor Slide out!
But our Schwintek slides will have to have the motors detached and in my opinion there is nothing to hold the slide-out when manually pushed in.

Anyway, I am making up a pair of slide-out travel rods for the Schwintek just in case.
Using pipe donated by my neighbor (electrician) and the DW who has the rubber ends sitting in a drawer. Total cost 20 minutes time. Just have to cut to length tomorrow.

We do have rods. DW has our unit in Grand Jct. at a dog trial right now . Will have to check length when she gets back tomorrow.

Kc2427, do you have rods?

I wonder if the OP Kc2427 received traveling rods?
Ben, curious to see what size rods you got with yours. I will post a photo of the correct ones tomorrow once I cut it with the ones they gave me.
Ben, that's GREAT that the DW drives the MH. Mine DW does also, from the potable water hose 30 ft straight to the dump station with me guiding her.

Found in the Schwintek manual page 8 that you may only need to unplug the motors from the controller and push the slide in with lots of help. Then reconnect the motors to the controller. Reconnecting the motors hold the slide in place. If necessary to unscrew motors, then traveling rods are needed to secure it.
