Bad Weather - Slides, In or Out

Hello All,
I live in Oklahoma and yes we have bad weather from time to time. The question is; So if you know bad weather is coming, do you leave your slides in or out?
Thanks in advance for all who comments!

Camping, out not matter the weather. Not camping, in. Now if there is extremely high winds, tornado or such, I'd close it up and run like crazy to shelter.

Depends on where the wind is coming from. We were in a situation last year where the wind was hitting us from the side, buffering the trailer and blowing the toppers around so bad that we pulled the slides in as we were afraid the toppers would be damaged. Earlier this year we were in a similar situation, but the wind from the rear, and we left everything opened up as it didn’t feel too bad.
