Never say never.

Almost got mine in Gettysburg but I saw it in time. Back to the switch tag again, (I stopped using it since I was Mr. Wonderful who never forgets anything); sigh...

We have owned two Puma 5th wheels neither one had the slide out sticks....... I had never heard of them until seeing them come up from time to time on the forum......................

Now, why do they always give you ONLY THREE and not FOUR? I would think you would need two on each slide, especially the LOOOONNNNNNGGGGG slide.

Though neither of my slides came with locking bars, I do have two different types of slide mechanisms.

Both of our Flagstaffs came with adjustable ones but were never used. Neither of the slides would budge regardless of how hard TOWTA and I shoved on them when they were in travel position. They both must not have been the norm. They only go against the trim which is stapled on and wouldn't stop much if they had too. JMHO.

Bottom line, if you got them and want to use them, by all means use them, if not then find another use for them.

My new TT didnt come with them either. Asked the dealer about them and all he did is smile and say that they bring him alot of business from errors just like yours.

Hmm, looking at your pictures these look like something that should be pretty easy to make if you wanted a fourth one. I'm thinking broom stick, dowel or piece of PVC with rubber caps on the ends?

Maybe I'm over simplifying :-)

Push at the top of the slide, not the bottom.

They probably gave you two for the long slide and figured one is enough for the shorter slide? I always use mine and they do have orange tags hanging on them for a reminder.
