Didn't your dealer go over your rv and all the neat little things that came with it? Our walk through lasted for a couple of hours...and we just have a little Graywolf 19RR.

We got three with ours also but we have 2 slides. 2 are for the heavier sofa slideout and one for the bedroom. I use them on the top because driving down the road you can see some wiggle up
There.

Yes, the dealer had a tech go over the rv and we thought everything was covered, but we missed a few things.

We also have two slides, so I assume two for the sofa slide and one for the bedroom slide. I just am not clear on how they are placed yet. Will play around with it tomorrow.

Thanks for all the input.

If anyone has a picture of what they look like installed and the exact placement, it would be appreciated.
On my last TT I had them. They go in just slightly below center, and wedge between the wall and the slide edge. The one on the top I put near the center.

I started camping in 1977 and have had many different types of RV's. After all the walk throughs, I am amazed how much some dealers don't know. I had one guy tell me the water heater would not work without water in the water tank. Hooking up to shore water wouldn't do it. I just said OK...and walked away.

This is a picture of our bedroom one. This is what I found to be the sturdiest place. After 2 years and being on the road almost every weekend the rubber slide seal has absolutely no signs of wear from the rod.

Tie a piece of brightly colored ribbon or rope to the rod and let it hang in to the living area as a reminder to remove the rod before attempting to move the slide out.
