Slide Transit Bars

Sorry if this subject has already been discussed. When we did our walk through, the dealer told us that we did not need to install the transit bars on the slides. He said they are only for the delivery to the dealer.

Is that true? I beleive the manual states that you should install them.

What does everyone else do?

We also asked that same question...our old trailer had them. We were told they are no longer needed. Then i found one in the compartment above the couch...but the directions said to use it for a closet rod...go figure...

My trailer came with a slide lock and I use it when traveling. Not all slides require them but if yours does I would use it.

It'd be interesting to hear what Jayco's answer would be. It was reiterated to us in our PDI to make sure we use the bar for it's intended use. So, we have been using it as suggested (during transit for the slide)

I also use the travel lock on our g2 29bhs. It wasnt in the trailer on walk through so they sent someone to get one from the shop or parts.

We never received them, nor were they even discussed during our walk through.

Slide Bar Lock

We have a 2007 RKS and we use the bar when we are traveling.

My trailer (purchased used) did not come with one. I went to Menards and bought a Masterforce quick clamp/spreader unit. I trimmed the metal bar off so I could still close the cabinet door above the slide and simply use that. I attached a bead chain with a flourescent orange tag on it so that someone doesn't accidentally try to deploy the slide with the spreader in it.
