Slider ?

We just bought our first TT last week. I was just wondering if it is ok to leave the slider out while it is parked here at the house or is it better to just slide it out when we go in there? Just not sure if there is any undo stress on it leaving it out for long periods of time. Thanks

Should be ok to leave the slide out. Just make sure you seal the roof and slide roof before leaving the slide out. I leave the slide out for a few days or weeks at a time. No sense to slide in and out every time you go into or exit the TT. Wear and tear on the parts.

I don't have a TT. I have a DP. I have left my sliders out for months at a time, however if you do, you want to try and protect the slider seals from daily direct sunlight or spray a slider lubricant on them from time to time. Mine is a 2005 and no problems yet.
