Well, both in and out. Returning from a trip, the TT gets plugged in and water hooked up. Slide then goes out and over the next few days or week, I'll dub around (Maine term) the camper cleaning, rearranging and basically thinking 'Jeez, wish I was camping'. After a while, slide comes in and it's ready to go for the next trip. That said, can't see any harm in leaving it out.

When my parents owned a park model it sat at a cg for 26 years and never had it's slides in. When they quit camping, the new owner had to manually bring the slide in, motors had seized. My htt has the slides out most of summer. Always something to do even if we haven't used it since mid April.

No debate just a poll. A buddy tried to tell me not to leave them out. I thought of I can't leave them out what's the point of having slides. I was curious if everyone thought the same, and most people do.

We are pretty new to rving but were told several times, to not put the slides out unless the unit was level. Wonder if that would have made a difference for your friend.

About the only time ours are in is when we are on the road. At home I built a level parking spot for the truck and trailer with 50a service and a dump station. We back it in,and do what we have to do to it before the next run,but when its home slides are out and she is connected to everything.Slide is in for the pic only because we are dumping/flushing.
