I think it is what you are comfortable with. The right thing to do though is probably to have them installed while on the road.

Having said that, we have never used ours and have pulled the trailer across Canada twice from coast to coast. Have done BC, Yukon and Alaska.... and more. All in all probably 70,000 plus km or 40,000 plus miles, never had a problem even on some of the roughest roads.

I try to use the ones on our 2008 Cardinal however the difficulty in attaching them, doesn't make them easy. I'm six ft tall and still have trouble placing them on the marks where they are supposed to go. Seems a slide latch would be so much easier.

Is this something all TT have if they have slide-outs? We have a 26RLWS and I do not have any nor was one mentioned during PDI; our unit has 2 slides.

You would have them if New purchase, however a used purchase might be without them.

I'm not even sure whether my XLR 27HFS has them. They were never demo'd if it does. I haven't seen anything in the literature either.

I was told electric slides would need them, hydraulics do not.

Do all Trailers with slides come with them? I have used my 2015 Coachman Freedom Express 322RLD once and don't remember seeing those in the walk thru and have not found any. We have three slides. Should I get some? Thanks

It may depend on the brand of slide out. My Shamrock had them but my Salem does not. They are two very different mechanisms.

Can someone post a picture of these? I've never heard of them. Now you got my curiosity up! (Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought him back)
