So sorry to hear about your daughter. I'm only 5ft hit my head lots in the beginning, till I mentioned it to my sister and she said we use pool noodles. I do and they work, but I am more careful, I unload everything when slides are in and reload when they are back in

I learned my lesson
One whack to the left shoulder and now I slow down and think
"There is a slide out above me"
But I worry about others that haven't learned yet
So I used the pipe insulation I had extra around the house
It's less obvious than the noodles and the foam is denser.
I don't think seeing it (bright colors) is going to help
If you saw it you wouldn't whack into it in the first place.

I would think a good old fashioned road cone placed a foot or so away from the corner. We use them all over the place at work.

Of course, be careful you don't trip over the cone!

Just a little pain

Boy o boy. Just let somebody get hurt and out come all of the comedians. Seriously just dig a hole under the slide when you park just deep enough to clear your head. 😂

So our 3170ds also has compartments under the slide out. After one head hit, I took pipe insulation tubes and placed them on the bottom edge of the slide out just above the exterior compartments.

Don't know if I am happy or sad to see that I am not alone. I feel like such an idiot because I never seem to learn. I cracked my head pretty hard this weekend and fortunately did not break the skin. I am going to have to get some pool noodles.
