Hi Hozerdude, I did a lousy job of making a point. I was trying to say that IMO, it isn't that big a big deal to have any slide cover at all. The Montana I had last year didn't have them and I wouldn't/couldn't spend the money to get them. It was not a big deal to just verify that there wasn't any debris on top of the slide or sweep it off if there was something before retracting the slide. The slide seals will keep out the weather with or without the covers.
Again, good luck and happy RVing. (I have a hard time saying "camping" when I have so many comforts)
