Sorry ck...they do work and have never had an issue...wouldn't be without them.

They also will help keep the temps down on the top of the slides in hot weather.

I'm not sure how old the awnings were on CK's rig but the spring tension is lost over time. My largest slide cover is flapping in the wind so I'm going to have to get up there and wrap the spring a few more turns. As soon as I find my round-to-it

Considering slider toppers for my 26.5rls fifth wheel. Use the camper during the winter with snow and ice.. Can anyone comment on if I would be better off with or with out topper for snow conditions? Or there actual experience with snow, etc
Thank you
Gary

If you have a coating of dry snow when you get ready to move it will fall off by itself as you retract but if it's icy snow you will have to clear the topper before retracting. Without the topper you have to clear the top of the slide no matter what.

As far as actual experience, yes, we parked overnight in Casper Wyoming and woke to 10 inches of wet spring snow. Stayed over to let the roads clear and the snow froze overnight. Had to carefully get up there and push the mess off the end.

When I installed them on my new rig the instructions said to unwind one revolution to make it easier. I didn't think I needed it so I didn't they seem to be tight which should help. Hope they are as good as my designer.

Nope got knocked off. Ran into a ambush and got a free ride home.

My slide awnings came from the factory on a Holiday Rambler Presidential and oscillated even when they were new. I do live and camp in west Texas where we have a little more breeze than other parts of the country. If they work for you, that's great.

Just an update: I found my round-to-it and tightened the spring tension in my LR slide cover and we've had a few stiff breezes here since without much noise from them. The job was easy on this model, which is a Carefree of Colorado SOKII.
