  • Using Slide couch

    Hi Folks,

    Is it safe to use a slideout couch when the slide is closed (slid in)? I am almost sure that yes, but better to check

    I am a pretty heavy guy, 350 lb, and my wife is about 140 lb, it is why I am asking

    Thank you

    You are perfectly safe using the couch and/or table & chairs with the slide extended or retracted.

    Where you could run into issues, is using the slide when it's not fully extended.

        Our dealer said the same thing as Dave said.
        He did say don't step on the edge when the slide is in.

        I had some old door jams that I cut into three three foot lengths to put under the edge in case we did step.
        Covered them in fabric to not scratch the floor and good to go.
