Probelms with slides

Does anyone know of any problems associated with letting the slides in and out too many times? We have to let our slide out to get to the bathroom when on the road. I hate doing it and I want a new camper for this reason but my wife says no. The camper I have now is a 330fbh.

There designed to go in and out for years and tears of service.
I say keep your slide adjusted and lubed per specs and you'll be fine .

What year? Anything that moves will need servicing but slides have come a long way since they started putting them in RV's.

The worst I could see would be a new motor or lube and seals, but that is going to happen no matter what.

I can't seem to find the floorplan without the 1/2 bath. I would not worry about the slide going in and out but I do understand if it is not what you want.
Bad thing is they will eat you alive on trade value so I myself would just use it until you can get closer to even on a trade or sell it privately.

New one are expensive that's for sure. I guess all I can say is maybe try RVWholesalers for a better price and then maybe the wife will be ok?

What was the unit you wanted?
