Columbus 32RS Slide Toppers?

Hey guys:

Another newbie question - I like the looks of the slide toppers on the 320rs. It looks like they somehow affix to the slide itself. My question is - do you have to manually climb up somehow and affix them to the slide, or are they attached to it permanently and as the slide opens, they open with it? Seems like it would be a hassle to have to climb up and attach them manually. Also do you find in strong winds it is best to detach and roll them up or are they pretty stable?

Thanx again everyone....

Larry C

They attach permanently and deploy automatically.
They might get a bit 'flappy' in high winds, but we have had zero problems with ours.
And they keep the tops of your slides clean and eliminate the possibility of water leaks around the slides.
Worth every penny.
Of course, you will probably get replies that they are a waste of money, but those will be from the people too cheap to buy them!

I do not necessarly agree with this statement about the cheap part but do agree they look nice and are worth the money.

Just pull the slide in, automatically dumps the water. Takes about 5 seconds. No tools required.

Thanx for all the info guys. BTW - is there an outlet under the dinette? About the only thing I use my dinette for is to set my laptop on when I work from the road.

Thanx again!

I got one of those extension cord "squids" that has 5 outlets (much easier to use than power strips) and have that running from behind my recliner (the one toward the back of the RV) so I can plug in laptop, hard drive, cell phone and whatever else I need to plug in as I work from "home". It's like this, but I think I paid $8.00 each or so for the four I bought - Philips SPP1591WA/17 5 Outlet Squid Surge Protector #u847204 at HardwareAndTools.com

I ordered the quote from trading phrases. And I ordered the tray from Amazon! I also have Old World bookends that friends bought and a picture of Christopher. I am currently on the hunt for a table Cloth that will complement the theme
