We don't extend our slides for quick lunch stops and our 70 pound dog rides on the sofa most of the time. We've never had problems with any of our units.

As RedLdr1 says, "Since the slides in motor homes often have seat belts for use while driving I think the answer is an easy No...you won't damage it."

The only warning I have see said when the Slide Is In Do Not Step On The Edge of the slide it is NOT supported by anything.

There was a person the other day that said they were looking @,,, I think a TT on a sales lot,,, and the salesman told them they should not sit on the sofa when the slid was in ??? I am guessing sofas in TTs do not have seatbelts !!!


Not sure what good a dinette would be if you could not use it when it was in ???

Makes sense on a motorhome since the seatbelts are there, but I'm wondering about a travel trailer? Had planned on occasionally sleeping on the slide for quick stopovers. We have a Rockwood MiniLite (2504s) with dinette slide.

If the same components and mechanisms are used in a MH or TT, it shouldn't make any difference.

I believe the Slides in our Sunseeker are much different than the one we had in our old Flagstaff TT ???

I call BS on what you've read or heard. We've done it with every unit we owned; no damage.
