Hello from Georgetown, Indiana

Hello all We just upgraded to a Wildwood Heritage Glen 263RL TT from a Lance 1140 slide in. The Lance worked well for the wife and I allowing us to still pull our boat and only take one vehicle but our grandchildren numbers are expanding and the wife said she needed more room for the grandkids. She wanted bunks but I talked her in to the RL to allow for more comfort but still able to accommodate the little ones staying with Mamaw & Papaw I have never had anything with a slide and was wondering if the slide should be extended or retracted during winter storage. The unit will fortunately be kept indoors out of the weather but not ever dealing with the seals was not sure about what would be best. I cant extend it completely but could extend it about halfway or enough that it is not sitting completely retracted compressing the seal. Thanks in advance and looking forward to the Forum.

Welcome from Wisconsin and congrats on your new Wildwood Heritage Glen 263RL. We've always pulled in our slides for the winter with every camper we've had.
