Slide out when not level?

I want to get my carpets professionally cleaned in the RV since I'm getting the house done, my street is not too level. Will it cause a problem putting the slide out with the RV on a slant? The slant is mostly front to back and just slightly side to side.
I saw someone around the corner from my house with all three of their slides out and on a similar slope condition. they had a 5th wheeler, i have a class c
Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Val

i guess it just all depends on how unlevel it is.

There's always a chance of the weight slipping and causing a problem. Are we talking about a small slide, or a really long slide here?

I'd probably do it, but use your best judgment.

It's the slide that has the dining table and the love seat in it. So, 10 feet or so

I wouldn't recommend it.
We were camping last spring and the ground was still soft, leveled our MH and over the course of the weekend the levelers had sunk a little, didn't think it was that big of deal till we brought the slide in and it caught the mirror that had been glued to the wall and shattered it.
Now I always check for level and clearance before retracting the slides.
Just my experience.

I would level it up.. drive it up on some 2x8 boards. I keep our rv level in our rv spot beside the house with 2x10's as it is a class A, so I can put a slide out if needed and not worry about anything.
