Have you checked your trailer's owner's manual to see if it addresses your question? Best source of info it would seem, or a call to Jayco customer service would provide the answer..........................

The owner's manual is not model specific for some reason. It's a general "catch all" of common information unfortunately.

Interesting question that I hadn't thought about. We signed up for a seasonal site at Cultus Lake, BC for next summer. Must people there seem to leave their slides out all summer but I'm not sure. The load over time could cause a problem and in my case the X213 has an exceptionally long slide (comes out about 6ft).

Glad Rolling Thunder posted this and I think I'll bring my in when I head home on the Mondays.

My previous Camper was a Jayco Designer 2003. In the 10.5 years of camping and over 1300 nights spent in it. The only time the slides were in was when we were towing it. We always had seasonal sites, and for winter towed it home and parked it in our 30 by 40ft shed with cment floor. Slides were out all winter long. it was never a problem, nothing sagged and no wind damage or leaks.
In the end it's up to you!

Yep thats what we do. The slides move so you can tow it is how we always looked at it.
