I believe the slide out bars are typically provided for use if there is an issue with a slide that had to be manually retracted (slide malfunction) to prevent inadvertent extending while travelling.

I have two of them that I do not need for current RV. I will sell them to you for $40 total plus shipping from NC.

If you manually operate it, such as if a motor or controller craps out and you disengage it, then you would need something temporary.

Ok thank you - I thought maybe ours was different but knew for sure that I didn't have anything like what was pictured in the previous post :)

Did not receive any with our 2015 Shamrock IKSS, should I be concerned?

They were included with my 23SS and I figured that Forest River did it for a reason......I use them every trip.

I had them in my old Flagstaff, never used them, my new 5er didn't come with them and it has 3 slides.

Mine didn't come with them.

Towing our 2013 Rockwood 5th wheel down and around a sharp right curve, the top of the kitchen slide would tilt out about two feet!! Scary! Used two slide locks all the time after that.

They aren't on the options sheet so every Roo should have had a pair put in at the factory. Both my Rockwoods have had a Lippert above floor electric slide and both have come with the same travel bars that fonzie provided a link to.

They were included on my 2016 23ws.......Will I use them .....nah !!!
Previously, I had a Travelstar and a Palomino and never used them.
