So my question is do I need them with the new slides?
I have owned 2 FR 5th wheels, my cousin owns a motorhome and none come with rods for the slides, my 5th wheel has hydrylic slides, the motorhome has electric slides, the only difference is on the motorhome only on the fullwall slide there are travel locks built in, but Fleetwood says this is only to make sure while in transit as it is the whole wall of the coach.
So yes I would contact FR and check with them and slide types and styes change all the time.
