Slideout Locking Bars

How important, or is it, to use locking bars inside your unit, for slideouts, while traveling? My is a new 2016 Rockwood Signature ultralite triple slide.

I thought they quit using them. I had them on a 2011 V-Lite but my 2015 does not have them. I personally never used them in my 2011 where not needed. Later RJD

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Used them all the time on my Rockwood 8289. If I did not, the kitchen slide would tip out on tight right turns!!

I don't use my because I have a sticker that tells me to place slide lock here on the trailer wall but on the slide itself all I have is cheap 1/2" moldings to put it against. It would bend it in half.

Where do you place your locking bars? I agree w/ SCCS, there doesn't seem to be a good solid place to position them although without them my slides to work themselves out while traveling.
