Stick around for a while and you may end up coming to the same conclusion I have, although the well placed, the search box on this forum, as well as others, is one of the least used features you will find. And I would have to question your assumption that someone is not tech savy enough to use a search box, after all, how do you think they found this forum. Most likely a Google search box

Sorry I offended you, been a long day, but it's getting better now.
In no way did you offend me. If my skin was that thin I would have been destroyed long ago. I do get it that the same questions get asked over and over again. I see it in the other forums I am a member of also. A few more hours stuck in the office and traffic until I can join you

Last trip... there was a persimmon tree or some thing next to 5er... no ladder. I stood in the back of the truck and could see(hickory/walnut looking deals) on slide(s). Got a towel and rope to throw and fetch... did I mention it was raining and cold? Tried and tried to throw a large towel(wet by now) 20-25ft....and hit the target. I did get a couple down and found out they were soft...kinda like a banana/fig. Gave up and hoped for the best.

I would recommend and will have if I ever get the extra $ MO

Myself... I have pulled crap into the trailer and I have pulled snow/water into the trailer with the slides. So the choice comes down to living with stuff being pulled in, living with carrying and using a ladder to clean them off every time, or installing slide covers.

My covers are on order.

Others with my model have had to deal with slide rain leakage. I have toppers and have not had those leaks. Is it the toppers or did the topper installation process remedy what could have leaked? I can't say for sure but these toppers seem to have been a good idea. At $700 total for all three including labor, I'm glad I did it.

A massive YEA ,here. Pine needles and other debris on a slide when it comes in is a prime reason for them. Keeps the outside - Out !

If you like camping around trees (especially in the fall) a topper is a welcomed mod!

In hot climates they will help keeping heat off the roof of the slide where there is little insulation.
