That's to lock your slide in for traveling

It's a travel bar for your slide-out. It holds your slide-out in the closed position while traveling so it doesn't accidentally "slide out" while you're underway. Here's what it looks like when in place.

Here's the link to just the picture in the photo album.

See if this works better for you.

The picture in the album is smaller than actual size due to size limitations on JOF. However, if you prefer to have it in its original size, PM me with your email address and I'll send it to you as an attachment.

It just sits between the top of your slide and the wall near the ceiling when your slide is 'IN'. You probably have a sticker on the wall near the ceiling where to place it. Keeps it from walking out on you.

One caution is to be sure you remove it before operating the slide out otherwise you will possibly destroy your wall...

I have my share of stupid moments so I won't be adding this brace to my list of must haves.

Actually they are quite useful if you ever need them, like when your slideout won't stay in. I made some from PVC and crutch tips and keep them stored in a cubby hole of my rig. They have come in handy twice.

I do think the brace is a good idea and I wonder how often this happens. Are we talking older units, all units and why are they not standard Equiptment. Does the slide just inch out mile by mile or does it just start rolling. Now you got me thinking because some of the roads I travel there is no place to pull over for miles and miles like between the 101 and the 1 north of San Francesco to the north coast and through the Red Woods.
