I believe I found a couple of spots where the slide locks can be positioned on the top of the slides. I mmay also try to find some that are adjustable so the positioning isn't limited to "where they fit". On this coach one of the places "where they fit" could result in me (the driver) being hit in the head with one if it came loose during moderate to hard braking. I have no intentions of wearing a hard hat or helmet while driving this coach.
On this MH there are no stickers anywhere saying the locks must be in place when travelling (either on the locks, the slide or the wall).
When I looked in the FR "Motorized Owners Manual" the only mention of a slide lock is the first bullet under "Before Beginning Slide Room Operation" on page 28. The bullet reads "Remove any devices that may be used to lock the slide room in place during travel". On page 29 there is a statement "Important! Always perform an exterior, visual Inspection, before leaving the campground" There is no mention what-so-ever about ensuring the slide locks are in position before travelling.
As to taking them out before extending the slides, I believe I will get some red cloth about three feet in length and stencil it with "Remove before operation" and attach a strip to each slide lock. Better yet, I may try to find the ones the Army clips to critical points of their helicopters when they are on the ground.
Thanks to everyone for the replies.
