Slide Stop/Lock ???

I purchased a 2014 Thor Windsport 34f and in one of the bays, I discover a Slide Stop. My RV has a very long slide on the driver's side.

How do I use this Slide Stop/Lock? I did not use it on a recent trip.

Thanks

The purpose of the slide stop/lock is to lock the slide in if the motors should fail and you have to take the coach in for service. Under normal use the slide motors serve as the lock when they are functioning correctly.

If you feel safer, there is no harm in using them while travelling down the road. If you do just remember to remove them before retracting the slide.

Just as a safety, I use mine on roads that are real bumpy and rough. I put a ribbon about 3 feet long on the unit and a short piece on the slide switch so I don't forget to remove it when I extend it. I do have a lot of senior moments!! Thanks for your service and Happy trails..

My Challenger came with a slide lock but when I went to use it after having left the dealer, found out it did not fit and needed to be cut shorter even though it was adjustable. You may want to confirm it fits before you run into a situation where you need it.
