One-Person Slide-Out Remover Slide-outs have become ubiquitous on today's motorhomes, trailers and truck campers. In fact, many newer models feature three slide-outs. All of those slide-outs pose issues for dealerships and service shops that need to work on them – especially if a business doesn't have a forklift to remove and reinstall them. The alternative usually involves having five or six techs attempt to muscle the slide-out around to work on a coach, which is less than ideal. That was exactly the situation the owners of RVinciDENTS, a small but versatile service shop located in Nixa, Mo., found themselves in six years ago. After unsuccessfully searching the market for a fix, they decided they would need to invent their own. Tools of the Trade Suppliers offer a number of products designed to make life easier – and more profitable – for the service shop. By Bradley Worrell, David MacNeal and Travis O.
