Slide out worries

Shouldn't my slide out have some type of stands to brace it after it's all the way out?

I wouldn't do it. By design it's engineered to hold weight. I don't let my kids jump around the slide room, or in the camper period. If you use a support brace, then something happens to the auto level, or stabilizers, etc., now you have more pressure on the slide out from the brace which could cause damage.

just my opinion.

If you read up on the modern slides, the manufacturers state NOT use them.

A flat tire on the rig could do major damage to the slide mechanism.
