Watch those slide topperrs
While we were at the Cape Hatteras KOA the past week we experience some high winds without rain. One night we were getting gusts up to 40 MPH. We had our slides out and I noticed my living room slide, the longest on the coach, would have the topper billow about a foot during these gusts. We retracted that slide to prevent damage to the topper.
A couple of notes. When it was raining there was no issue because the weight of rain on the topper would hold it down. Also, at the high point in the billow I could see there was still a couple at least a foot of material around the roller. I may look at increasing the tension on that particular roller to see if that helps. The coach was rockin and rollin during the week and it wasn't because of momma and me; it was due to what mother nature was whipping on us with winds. The sustained winds were so high the road construction crews could not work.
The other two slides, on the other side of the coach did not have the same problem.
