Hey guys, I can see the pic as to how these are setup. I have used 1998 Eagle and I am not sure of the proper way to install these travel bars.

Yes, I have the same style for my eagle 266 FBS. The flat end goes against the outer wall of the trailer and the tubular end against the inside flange (closest to you) of the slide out. One thing I do before I set the locking mechanism is pull the tubular ends against the inside flange with both my hands. This helps ensure the travel bar is straight. Below is a picture of how the travel bar looks when in place.
I think this says it all. If the sticker is worn off the out side wall you'll have to check for a stud the bar pushes against.

We also have a 1998. We have a Designer 29RKS. The "travel bars" serve the same purpose as load locks do for a long haul driver. They keep everything in place, everything being the slide(s) in this case. I most definitely wouldn't want to have to repair/replace slide parts, so that is the last thing we do before going out the door. The slides come in, and the locks go into place.

My 2006 29Y FeatherLite has these transit bars. Mine are adjustable and spring loaded. A lever isused to spread the two feet apart, with a spring allowing some minor movement that might occur during travel. Found this picture on the web of one installed.
