Twist and Lock

May 4, 2015

We have a 2010 31-foot Flagstaff 831RLBSS travel trailer. Installing the brace to keep the slideout from moving while under way was inconvenient. I got tired of holding up a 42-inch locking brace over the slideout while twisting it to hit the 6-inch sticker on the wall that indicates proper positioning. Since this had been bothering my wrist and hand for a long time, I have been trying to come up with a way to hold one end of the brace while tightening the other. I built a U out of ½-inch wood to hold the weight of the brace while easily making the proper adjustments.
