I have been reading good reports about these slide stabilizers helping with the coach motion when someone is moving or the wind is kicking up...anyone have experience with these? I have a '09 CF29CK. Thanks.

I think you would be better off with a set of front and rear jack stabilizersrather than slide stabilizers. JMHO

All manufacturers that I know do not recommend slide stabilizers. They can damage your slide if for some reason the coach shifts, a tire goes flat, etc. Just think if the wind is high enough to move the coach but the slide can't move, what could happen to the slide mechanism.

I agree with the other comments. I would rather improve stability of the entire unit, not just the slides. Even with just moderate winds or family movement inside the unit, if the main coach moves and the slide doesn't, then you will create gaps somewhere along the slide seals and allow more heat, cold, rain and bugs into the unit with the compromised seal. Kind of like accidently leaving a window partly open.

Thanks guys, your comments made a lot sense and are appreciated...think I'll pass on these slide stabilizers.
