Thanks for the picture. It certainly looks like the rods I have, but I don’t understand “why”.

Looks to me like it may prevent the slide from tipping down when weight is applied further out on the slide.
- I never had any issues with electric slides, maybe these are for hydraulic slides? Maybe they have issues with flex or give that electric doesnt?
Just an idea, dont know for sure.

I had hydraulics on my wildcat and no rods. Maybe they just help keep a tight seal when slides are open.

We had the identical looking things in our Arctic fox. They are locks for the slides, but they usually have a cloth ribbon on them to remind you that they are in place before you try to push out the slide. ours were not adjustable or spring loaded, but the should have been. They never stayed put.
