Talking Slide..In or out for winter storage??

Hey all...I have two jaycos that have slides and was wondering if it's best
to keep the slide in during the winter or can I leave them out. TIA

I keep our one slide in during winter. I do make sure to apply conditioner to the slide seal gasket so it will not stick when I reopen it later.

I keep my slides in whenever the trailer isn't in use period. Why have them out if your not using it?

I store mine next to the house and plunged in and I keep my slide out.

Why expose the seals to the weather and sun when not being used?

I keep my sides in when not using it, unless we are loading for a trip. I can access everything in the MH with the slides in except a couple of small cabinets and a drawer on one side of the bed.

I leave my slides out and keep the heat or AC on year round.

Depends on how / if you store over the winter. In my case, slides are always in unless I'm camping or pre-packing. Having my slides out at the storage lot, unattended by me, sounds like a bad idea.
