They are used inside the trailer.

Hi Lee,

Any particular reason yours (in the pic) is on the side of the slide? We were instructed to use it on the top.

Mine install high on the sides as well. I have stickers on the sidewall locating where to install them.

That`s not mine, its a pic I borrowed from a vender. My slide lock also goes on top of the slide, just one. It is a small shallow sofa slide. And without the lock in place it will move out at the top if you push on it. So I suppose it would move slightly while traveling.

I found bars stowed away in the bedroom for my new Greyhawk 31SS. Dealer didn't even mention them or how to use.

The first slide I ever had was in a 2001 Fleetwood Prowler and there were two aluminum bars with rubber feet that you wedged in the top of the slide for travel. My current fiver did not come with any.

I may be a little anal retentive, but last year the party next to me at the CG tried to put their slide out and ripped out part of their sidewall. I said that's never going to happen to me. I went to an electrical supply store and bought 2 key switches, key removable in off position only, and installed them next to the slide out switches and wired them into the OUT side only. I painted the switches, transit bars, and keys different colors so I wouldn't mix them up. The keys hang on the transit bars when in use or in storage under the dinette seat. Now I have to do it to the new Seneca asap, and that will be one less problem to worry about.

Don't you have decals above the slide-out switches that mention the bars? Our 08 35GS has decals that talk about the bars as well as to level before opening the slide, that's how it came from the factory.

It wasn't a Jayco, neither was the errant fools' 5er w/the damaged sidewall.

A question: Are slide "lock" bars something used by Jayco in all their models, towable or motorized? None in our WhiteHawk and no mention of them by the salesman when we purchased. The slide in our trailer is 30" deep, electric gear driven Lippert model.
