    Just been reading an article on vehicle recalls.One manufacturer states that there could be a problem with a slide out activating while travelling.Quote "This can cause the overall vehicle width to increase" Would never have guessed that.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Sounds an interesting scenario Martyn.

    Would certainly scare the s..t out of anyone overtaking at the time, or some unsuspecting pedestrian.:Eeek:

    Did they name the Manufacturer of the vehicle it relates to?

    And the "fix" is? Makes you wonder where they have sited the relay?

    Much more comfy with then out.

    You just have to make allowance for the extra width when driving with them extended:Wink:
