Last word on slide locks

Just got back from a 3000 mile trip to Cody, WY, Devil's Tower, and the Black Hills. Most of the roads were pretty darn good, but we hit enough "surprises" in the road that I am convinced that using the slide locks is not an option.
I can only picture what the slides would be doing when the camper hammers and rocks over those bumps, if not for the slide locks holding them in place.
Other than that, it was a fantastic trip. Saw a lot of things we missed on our many past trips to all three areas.

IF you can get them to fit- then by all means use them. I cannot get the ones supplied with my V lite to fit. The interior fascia board is nailed on with small trim nails- I can easily pull it off with one hand. I tried putting it on the seal, and that does not work either; the angle of the seal prevents that. So, I give the spiders in my garage something to climb on! Never had either of my 2 slides move at all in 5 years (knock on wood) Randy
