Informative thread, so I'm dredging it up. Last night a front went through, no rain but lots of wind and a 20 degree temperature drop. The coach stayed toasty warm with just the heat pumps, but the wind is 20-30, gusting to 40mph and we are a-rockin. So I searched up this thread.

I pulled in the awning and took care of the outside stuff. Jacks are down and tires on the ground too, so I was wondering about the best way to handle this considering we are still learning everything. Luckily this isn't a storm, but the wind is pretty good. Don't laugh, but I didn't think about pulling in the slides...makes perfect sense now. I think we're ok with them out, but threads like this are hugely informative to us newbies. Thanks!

Oh and I completely disagree with the "old thread" warning. That's a vbulletin feature that isn't necessary. Bringing up older threads can be extremely helpful sometimes, so that feature should be disabled IMO.

4X to bringing in the slides. We failed to do so in high winds and experienced damage to slide toppers.

For us, HWH hydraulic jacks down, slides in to save the slide toppers, and even though there is no wind restriction on the Winegard Traveler SAT Antenna I retract that as well, unless too late and in the middle of the windststorm.
