Comments for Beware your RV slideout

  • Good tip… In addition to padding slide corners: beware your own entry door — at 6’2″, I easily clock myself on my 5’10” or so doorway if I don’t remember to look down the stairs whenever exiting. There’s a tiny 1/2″ thick pad OEM, but grossly insufficient protection. It’s not possible to clamp a pool noodle pad on without obstructing the door, but pretty easy to tape or even upholster this thicker foam in the relevant place.

  • It’s ironic that this article/video appears in the newsletter this week, as I just had a medical staple removed from cutting my head open on our slideout last week….

  • Don’t forget the 5th wheel pin box/kingpin. My granddaughter almost hit mine the other night. If you have a stabilizing tripod under your kingpin great, otherwise you might want to place some type of obstacle directly below the pin box so little ones can’t run under it or wrap it in foam.
