The support poles would connect to the rear bumper such as on a popup.

Ah, well that would probably work then.

My thanks,also, to Herk for alerting me to this so that we could get the right folks involved.
Thanks to you too FROG! I dont want to leave anyone out that steered me in the right direction! Thanks to all involved

In my 12 years of being on many RV forums, this case is the FIRST time I've read of any such thing happening on a slideout.
Keep in mind that thousands of RVs have slideouts, that nothing like has ever happened.

Don't buy any lottery tickets, either - the odds on those are even worse!

kant160, can you provide some detail on what caused the slide to fall out? Other Rear Slide owners would like to hear what they should look for even though this is a very rare thing.

It's great that you got it fixed. Hopefully you have it back now and you're happy with the factory's work.

$1000? Now that's a great deal. I think my furnace guy just charged me that to say "looks good". 😂
Seriously, well done to FR and the great people on this thread.

I have a question how come you're insurance will not cover that. My awning ripped out on my old stealth and they covered it 100%.

It's just my personal preference. I just don't like slideouts, I never have. I am not alone in my feelings about slideouts, I know many people who have hated slideouts since they first appeared. If you like slideouts that's fine, but I do not.
