So THATíS why my slideout wouldnít close properly!, DOH!!

Okay. I guess Iím daft.

My main slideout hasnít been closing properly. The upper left has been sticking out about 2.5 inches when it closes. I checked inside and found no obstructions. So today I tried adjusting its alignment and vertical adjustment on that side. I made half turn vertical adjustments up to two complete revolutions and saw no change. Hmm.

So... I went up the ladder...and looked on top of the slide out. And found the reason ó a beer bottle!!! Itís been up there since I bought it, and managed to stay there despite being towed a number of miles.

So, on one hand, Iím glad thatís all it was. On the other hand, what a dope for not looking there sooner!!

Me too! Youíd think it would have broken if thrown up there. Maybe the PO was working on the roof and forgot about it?

How did you keep water out of the trailer when it rained or when you washed it? Considering all of the posts I've seen regarding cabinet/pantry/bathroom doors being destroyed when opening and closing slides, I'm surprised the bottle wasn't crushed.

Maybe someone threw it up there when you were camping

I once left the pry bar for the equalizer 4pt hitch on the bumper of my truck. Drove home for 2 1/2 hours and it was still sitting in the same spot.

Andy Dufrane and his boys must have done the roof.

Dave:
That's another justification for what I do every time we pack up at a CG. I get up on the ladder and sweep the top of the slides. Almost every time, there are sticks and leaves and whatnot (no beer bottles...yet) up there that would defintely interfere with the slide operation or degrade the seals.

That's a great reference.

Drinking beer on the roof can be a dangerous pursuit.
