Another winterizing ?

Is it best to store the RV with the slides in or out? We don't get any snow, but I expect the temps to drop into the 30s now and then but not on a consistant basis.
Thanks for any help ;)

I don't think it really makes any difference. On my lot they are out unless we are expecting ice or a snow that accumulates several inches. Either one of those can push under the seals and cause a leak.

Even if they don't cause a problem, I would rather be safe than sorry.

Thanks for the reply. I wasn't sure if made a significant difference and, I have seen RVs left for long periods with slides both out and in.
Again thanks..

I'd think in, no need to expose the roof of the slide (or the slide topper) to the elements if you are not in there to need the space. And I think there may be more stress on the mechanism when out than when in.

I agree John, I pulled them in. When thinking about it, there is probably more risk, stress and exposure being out than in..
