Slide Out Question for B Clemens

Ok, now that I have had my front slide crack fixed (courtesy of Forest River, THANK YOU!!!!), should I refrain from moving slides in and out during a wind storm?

My past practice has been to bring the slides in when a windstorm of 50 mph or more comes up. Even though I have the Quadra Big Foot, I still feel more "stable" with the slides in during a wind storm.

Should I stop doing this and just leave the slides out? Lot of rockin and rollin when I leave them out during a wind storm. Less of it when they are in.

JJ only, my cat went to Rainbow Bridge July 2015

I love my Sunseeker, when I'm on a trip I don't wanna go home!!!"

Total days camping each year: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!

Wind should not have any effect on the slides going in or out. The crack was a missed weld on one side of the tube and was mainly cosmetic.
