Slide operating

We are upgrading from a 2011 Jay flight 22fb to a 2017 Jay flight 24rbs. Not a huge upgrade, but the slide component will be new to us. Looking for opinions on support for the slide. DH thinks having a support on the slide is needed, I think it's not needed. Help settle our dispute.

It is not needed nor recommended. All is well with a support until the rig settles or tire loses air, then you put unwanted stress on the slide components and can cause damage. Some people still use them, but we don't as its not worth the risk.

X3 on what John and Mike have said.

I had the same concern, and finally contacted Jayco directly about it. Their answer was no, do not add support to your slideout. I also asked about the weight capacity of *my* slideout, in my Jay Feather 23RLSW, and I was told it's designed for four 150 lb. people, or 600 pounds. That may not apply to your specific model, but it's worth asking Jayco because it's not in the manual that I can find!

That is legacy thinking from the days when a tip out was actually a tip out.
