Partially extended?

Is it ok to leave a slide out partially extended?
The space where I will park the trailer for the winter is not big enough to fully extend the slide.
With it partially extended I have better access inside, but am I asking for trouble with leaking?

We live in Colorado... There will be snow on top of the slide off/on all season.

I don't think it's a good idea, you will have leaks, and critters can get in

If you only put it out part way it won't seal right and you could get water in. Also with melting snow you may get ice in between the slide and the wall that could cause damage. I would put it in for the winter, once it's closed for the winter I just poke my head in the doors to ck I don't go in and track snow in.

Slides should be fully extended or retracted, anywhere in between will lead to leaks. I always have mine in during storage, less chance of any kind of damage.
