No... but, we do get high winds associated with thunderstorms; but nothing like in other places. The deflector is to prevent damage while on the road, I would say. You doing okay today?

Can you retract with slide out - where I camp I don't dare leave my awning out or it should be ripped off in minutes -

I like to leave my slide out when parked at my home and I have a crazy amount of leafy trees around - want to keep seal on slide leaf free

No you can't retract with slide out.

The roller has a retracting spring, always under pressure; trying to roll up; to keep the cover tight. When the slide retracts, the spring and roller takes up the slack; opposite with extending the slide.

There is substantial spring pressure.

If driving 70 on the Interstate into a crosswind isn't supposed to be an issue; it stands to reason that a normal wind shouldn't be an issue.

Unlike a huge awning these slide covers are tiny in comparison; much less surface area, tiedowns are essentially the trailer itself, and the only place wind has to get under it is from the small gaps at the sides.

The deflector isn't a separate piece, rather the bottom of the structure that holds the roller in place; designed in a way that it (almost) fills the gap between roller and slide room wall. It is essentially the bottom of the case; the option that I didn't get, but should have.

I'll take a photo and post it later. Worth a thousand words, as they say.

They were easy to work with, but DON'T buy through Walmart / Wayfair... terrible service!!! Lowes and HD has them available online. I never know to write "on line" or "online".

Also, I added a paper towel holder to the backside of the sink overhead cabinet. You can pull paper towels without opening the door. WW



WW - your tile job looks great! Very similar to what we did....
Now: Where did you get that lovely stainless steel stove cover? And can you provide a little more detail about the papertowel holder because that is on my "to-do" list but I haven't ever been able to figure out where the best place would be. Did you get off of Amazon?

Your making me think... and it hurts!

Paper towel holder. I wondered about how good they would be (ordered 2- one for the house) but they are solid.

I struggled a bit find the cover that fits. Also, getting the best price.
I think this is where i got it. But, lots of suppliers. The cover is available in black too. I went with this cover because of the sides to keep splatter and heat off the wall and the sink. Plus it adds a little work more surface when down.
