Roo 21SS and 21SSL slider locks

We have looked at pictures of 2010 Roo 21SS and 21SSL. We are very curious on what are those slider lock bars for and where do they go. We have seen stickers on the wall above the slide out inside the campers that said "Slide out locks". Do they go inside or outside?

They wedge between the wall and slide (above the slide roof) when the slide is closed...for safety if the slide decided it wanted to deploy while traveling. They're real simple to use so we use them, you just have to remember to remove them before extending slide or you'll be replacing some slide molding.

Latner, I have a 2008 21RS and have the slider lock as well. Can you post a picture of where it goes? I thought it went underneath the slider to keep it from bouning during travel.

EastlakeRoo, the SS and SSL are different than your RS...not sure how they are used on the RS.

on the Roo with side slides, they go inside on top of the slide.
there are 2 stickers in ours that show where they go.
and the seal has 2 indentations, under the seal, where the other end of the lock goes.
generally, no matter what i do, one lock is always out after traveling.

Our slide locks also have strings that hang over the front inside area of the slide and have bright orange tags that say something like "Remove before using slide", or something to that effect. Very hard to miss.

Thank you all for the info. Now when we get ours we'll know what to do.

Chuck S. has a pic on his webshots of almost everything you'd want to see on a Roo 23SS.
here's a link to his pic of a slide lock in place:

The slide locks on my camper will not stay in place because of the rubber seal on the top of the interior edge. The rubber seal is on an angle so when the slide out is open it seals the top to the interior fix wall. I do not use them at all because when they fall out they damage the floor, cabinets and trim work around the slider. I use them for other things. I have one slide out and that is on the drivers side, while I am towing I keep an eye on things and so far no problems.

They don't work properly on my V lite either. I have 2 slide outs, and haven't had any problems with accidental deployment of the slide outs. They are on a worm drive electric motor (12v), and would have to be energized in order to move; and besides, like you said they just DON'T FIT...they would push the trim off and the seal is angled, so I too see no way of any usefulness for this purpose, at least!
