Slide locks?

Found in a cabinet when I got home from the dealer. I think I understand were they go and what they are for but I have not seen anything in regards to people using them. I use them when traveling but I'm scared to death that I will forget them when I get to the camp spot or home and go to open the slide without removing them. My question which is obvious do I need to use them?

We don't but carry them in case something goes south with the slide. Many others don't either.

Ours came with orange tags hanging from them.

so you can't miss them.

Never heard of them. But, again, we are newbies. Should I have had some with our 2016 23IKSS?

Always use slide locks!

I always use my slide locks. I had the large orange tags laminated with plastic at Office Max. I still use the nylon strings with the tags hanging down so I will always notice & remind me to remove the slide locks.


I labeled one with a large "F" and one with a large "R" with a black tip
felt marker with a circle around the "F" & "R" to remind me front & rear
because both have different adjustments.

Our 23ss came with them. Walls have stickers where they are supposed to go. I also hang the tags down so we don't forget them.
When we had our PDI the tech mentioned using them. It was his opinion that if a TT came with them and had a spot for them to go ahead and use them. Our slide is the type with the clutch mechanism, so I suppose it might be possible for it to move out in a sharp turn. I have added a 1/4 x1/4 inch "U" shaped wood strip around the sticker so it's easier to put them in place.
@Daisy, I like your idea of laminating the tags, I'll have to to that.

Strange. We do not have them with our 23 ikss. Did they only come with certain models or should I have them and do not?

I would think that if there's no stickers on the wall indicating where they get placed, then you don't need them.

Depends on the manufacturer of the slide mechanism.

Our 2011 V-Lite came with them but I never used. When we got our 2015 they discontinued using them and I think that may very well be the case for most new FR campers. Later RJD
