Just one final thought which may be of interest to the OP (& maybe others).  Here's a site that has netting (& has been mentioned before):

Have never noticed this "open" area on my 2012 177 pod.   Next spring when I get the pod out of storage I'm going to have to check this out.... Now all I have to do is remember to check it out... I put the pod into storage Oct 29th... won't see it again until May 1st... It'll be a long winter.....

LOLOur first year, I had a metal sign which I thought I had hung securely on a wall disappear, but really didn't notice it.  Until......

Put the slide out and heard this awful metal crunching, quickly found the issue.

Since then we've just become diligent about checking it.  It's part of our open/shut process.  This includes checking the slide on the outside, because uhm one time I caught the grill rack in the slide as it was pulling in.

So now, it's power on, water on, check slide for sink hoses or misc items.  When we close up to go home, power off, water off, check slide inside and out before retracting.

DW usually keeps an eye on things inside while on a trip so it's easy to know nothing is in the way on the return.  When arriving at camp we both are conscious of what we store on the floor in travel and look for it before sliding out.

For us, we learned our lesson and developed a routine to remedy the situation without any physical type of change needed.

Sure do miss that sign though....

LOL

Yes, you only make that kind of mistake once. I keep looking at that space even when we're not moving the slide.Wink

That is indeed true.  If you ever Pod with us as we setup or breakdown camp you'll hear me yell into the windows or the DW yell out of the windows..

Slide Clear Inside (CHECK)
Slide Clear Outside (CHECK)

Maybe you'll end up like us then and not need to modify it Gypsy, I don't think we'd ever forget it again, I'm betting you wouldn't either?  If you do though, be sure and let us know what you come up with, it's threads and discussion like these that clue in the next round of owners new to their Pods to be aware of this possibility.

We do the same thing Travis with the slide, but also with the hot water. Hook water up, ask the boss to turn hot water tap on and let me know when she has water coming out of the tap. At that point and only at that point do I flip the outside toggle switch to the on position to turn on the hot water element.

Verifying with the boss is always recommended!

When I worked full time my $ boss... used to say "never go down alone, always take someone with you" " harder to fire 2 people than just 1".... Although when there is just 2 around the pod.....
