Slide out blocks ???

New flagstaff 831krss owner. 2009 trailer used came with no blocks. See signs above slide outs place blocks here. What are they for and can I make something that works in these spots if something is needed in them . Parked model on site so slides out all the time in summer season. Thanks JIm J

They might just be a simple fiberglass rod with rubber tips on each end.

Some people have tied a length of rope on each and used them to beat the dealer with nunchaku style.....

i believe you're talking about the slideout adjustable braces.
they have two plastic covered "feet" on each end of a threaded rod.

most owners don't use them. we don't on short trips but do if we're driving on windy mountain roads, where lateral forces may stress the slideout.

i would contact FR parts dept. and find out how much a pair would cost, if you feel the need for them.
