Mine works that way as well, with the top of the slide contacting the camper wall first, with the bottom then tightening up. But notwithstanding that fact, I can rock the slide out if I push on the top.

Have you actually tried pushing on yours? If yours is tight, that is good.
I am only stating what I am experiencing. As we all know very well, not everyone's camper is put together the same.

Being both of our trailers came from the same dealer, they may have put yours there too....if you have a drawer underneath your couch.

I always have to wiggle that drawer front just right to get it to pull out, without the whole front of the drawer becoming disconnected.

Oh my gawd. I see this issue is a passionate hornet's nest with people. But I still want to know why only THREE and not FOUR! Can SOMEONE from FR come on here and explain why they think only THREE are ok and not FOUR?

Just a passing thought. Has anyone ever witnessed or heard tell of a slide coming out on the highway? For the record, I have not. Another thought: Has anyone experienced any damage from the "sticks"? I think the title of this thread answers that question. Just saying.

Can you tell us the length of your slides? Might give us a clue.

I agree there should be an Aluminum angle. On the TT I traded the trim was too weak to hold anything. They should have a cup type bracket that a ball on the end of the lock fits into. When they build the slide it would be no big deal to add these to the frame.

The damage was caused by human error, not the slide locks.
If you forgot to raise your landing gear on your camper and drove away, would you blame the landing gear for the damage?
Just saying.

No, I would blame the wife.

My dealer told me to never use them. He had never heard of a slide coming out unintentionally and has seen the damage they do if left in.
