So basically the only advantage to leaving them out is reduced wear on the slide motors and seals. The risk though is a possible water leak, wind damage to toppers, and a better change of getting a critter or insects inside.
Sounds like leaving them out just isn't worth it. Still surprised how many I see around here stored for the winter with slides out. Thanks for all the replies tho.
