Supporting slides on extended stays

Has anyone heard/read anything about supporting schwintech slides when when they are extended for long periods? I've not been able to find anything that adresses the subject.

I purchased these Slide-Out Stabilizers 26" to 47"H, Set of 2 - Ultra-Fab 19-960003 - Stabilizing Jacks - Camping World earlier in the year and the jury is still out wondering if they were worth the money. The one thing I can tell you is - do not forget to remove them before bringing in the slide. No damage just a whole lot of noise which scares the daylights out of you. Trust me in that you'll only do it once.

I dont think I would try it. What would happen if the trailer supports started to sink and the supports on the slide did not? What would happen if the supports under the slide started to heave and the trailer stayed put? I would not do it. unless I was on concrete and I knew it was stable (the concrete pad) JMHO

Goldenyears, that is my concern as well. However, considering how tempermental these slides can be im willing to try anything that will increase their overall reliability. Saw a palimono recently that was using them and it got me to thinking. Thanks for your insight.

No you do not need to stabilize them in any way according to LSI. I called them with this question last year.
