Because of the IP rating and price point of these Actuators, they are suited greatly for RV slide outs. The extra force these units exert offers a lot of extra capacity for even the most stubborn Slide outs. They can be controlled and synced together too using our Sync Control box. This allows them to run at the same time which is very important for this sort of application.
