So I guess those of us that don't have the awning need to get a ladder and check the top of the slide before closing? May bring a push broom in the truck until..... Other recommendations appreciated. Hear the gasket is expensive to replace. Even WITH the awning I think I'd want to check the top before sliding it in.
i added it. no regrets. first trip out after i got it installed, the camper returned from a weekend trip with a strip of blue paint along the metal cover of the dometic slide awning.
DW happened to turn a corner or go through some entry and scraped the camper without feeling it.
the slide awning protected the side of the camper since it stuck put farther than anything else. the metal slide cover protected the awning......Nothing broken or damaged.
i know this was not the intended reason for the awning, but it definitely prevented what would have been a costly repair.
Oh....the slide topper is keeping the debri from collecting on the top of the slide and it is working as desired.
i recommend getting one.
