Winter Storage and slide outs

Newbie here.... I have a Rockwood 2703WS with 3 slides. It sits in a warehouse when not in is now laid up for the winter. During storage, does it matter if the slides are in or out? Is there any plus or minus in doing either?

FWIW we've been on a seasonal site for 7 years and always close the slides during the off season.

If it is inside and not in your way you can pretty well do it
any way you want.
Don't know of pro's or con's for either.

In or out, it is your call.

Only advice would be to move the main slide out if you go inside so as to not walk on the edge while it is unsupported.

MYKLSKC: My question exactly. We have the same model and there are some tasks to be done inside. I think I will put out the dinette slide at least so we can move about. And just like when camped will put down the stabilizers. It should sit nice and stable on a cement floor.

You asked this question a month ago. What did you end up doing?

I ended up putting it up on jack stands and extending the slides. Don't know if it's right but it made me feel better 😄
