We upgraded to a Flagstaff HW27KS Highwall with slideout. I think the dealer gave use the wrong instructions when they demo’ed when opening to pull out the slide first, then the bunk ends and when closing, bunk ends first, then the slide.

When I look at the slide there are wheels on the top ends of them and I see when looking inside after closing, they are support the bunk ends.

So (forgetting the need to pull out the slide canvas before open and closing), I think it needs to be:
Setup: Bunks ends out first (So it can use the roller for support), then pull out slideout
Breakdown: Push in slideout, then push in bunk ends.

A check of the Forrest River forums has it both ways…

Your theory sounds very thought out.  Makes sense to me.

Phil – our Utah has a slide, the dealer (same one you got yours from) told us when setting up: bunk ends first, then slide. When putting down: slide, then bunk ends. I can’t imagine that the different brands would have a different procedure – all the campers are pretty much the same, right?
