Just got ours back from the factory where they had found a slight leak in top of our large slide. They provided slideout locks to remedy.

What is a slide out lock? Sounds like a safety feature should be provided from factory.

If you could provide a picture of the "Slideout Locks" that would be really appreciated!

Slide out lock

In older trailers, they were used quite extensively to help hold the slide in while under way. I wouldn't be so quick to use one on my slide. I just am not that confident in the support there. I would ask Jayco first if there is enough support for a slide lock.

Just my pair o' pennies, YMMV.

I had them on older rigs. My new one does not have or need them. That said, I had a slide motor gear go out and I made some with 1 in PVC and crutch tips. Just cut them to size and one on each end kept the slide in place until we could get home.

If someone does not post a pic I will take one of mine and put it up. I keep them in the drawer under the sofa.

We've never had our slide wiggle loose during our travels, and we've been on some really curvy mountain roads.

Mine came with slide locks, are you saying yours didn't? I use them everytime we move.
