There are also 6 other kids under age 5 that will frequently be in our camper so again I am trying to solve a problem, not get a parenting lesson. Thank you to those of you with constructive help.

Its hard enough to get ADULTS to act appropriately... I think my 3 year old daughter is more well behaved than some people around here!

Kids and slide outs...

Been there and then some...used plastic outside switch cover easy to install but....we had a great 5th wheel hitchhiker..loved it..very solid and never a problem..but going down I 5, wife driving some guy...we figured was a nut kept honking at us...pulling in front...and slowing...tried to ignore figuring road rage... and finally looking in my rear view mirror on passenger side saw my bit 16 foot slide was out... We stopped but the guy kept going..wished I could have thanked and bought him dinner.... Anyhow the switch was in cabinet on side ...and dishes had slid in to the toggle switch...and opened the slide while driving... Stopped at Home Depot got switch cover.... Also called Hitch Hiker company with warning but they did not seemed concerned...So if in a cabinet like ours be sure is also covered.

That is a great idea even if you don't have a kid problem.

One or two swift swats on the butt would be the preferred teaching method.

I really like that swing away picture idea. This thread gives me a SMALL idea of our future. At 66 and 67 we have become somewhat surprised grandparents. Heaven help us.
