I have the slides out on the 360IBL right now with it hooked to the truck. I have a spot in the driveway where the trailer is level hooked to the truck... since it was only a week from one trip to the next, I left it hooked up. We have to move slides out to get to the cloths up front and the fridge in the back.

That said.. I wouldn't hook up or unhook with the slides out, but if the trailer is level whole hooked I do put them out.

My slides switch was on the inside wall, so if your site is small, you'd almost need a spotter....with an RF controller, I can be outside watching and deploying with a remote

I've never never worried about using the slides when hooked up, not hooked up, level, not level. Our new rig doesn't have one but the last 4 did and no service or sales people ever said anything about it. Besides, what kind of bouncing are you going to get when hooking up that doesn't compare to a teenager sitting (more like falling) onto the sofa in the slide out? How rough are y'all with your rigs while hooking up?

Mines easy.... It just lowers right down on the ball. No clunking whatsoever.
