Leave slide in or out

We are going on a Trip later this month and leaving the RW parked. The temps call out to be close to 100 all week while we are gone. Would you put the slides in and turn on the AC to about 80 or leave them out while we are gone? We are in the Pacific Northwest and don't get the storms of the Midwest or east. Wondering what others would do.

Realistically, I think they cool better with the slides out (based on when I try to pre-cool mine down the road). It's a good question, not sure what I would do.

I would leave mine out. What's the difference if you are there the entire time with them out or you are gone with them out? When we used to workamp we would leave for a week or two and we always left them out and set the air up a little but I would not turn the air off. Leaving them out should be no problems with storms and any storm that would cause a problem would probably cause a problem even if they were left in.

Leave them out. As Rick said they are designed to be out as a fulltime unit. Just set your air to 80 to keep things from melting and you are good to go.

They sit on the dealers lots sometimes for a year or more out. I would think out would be fine.

Yes out. Your vents would be under your slides or partially covered with them In.

Leave them out. But the A/C vents are in the ceiling. Heat ducts and registers are in the floor.

No heat or cooling ducts are blocked when slides are in, the return air ducts are above the slides, but not blocked. I would/ have left them out & on one occasion the park operator ask that I put them in while gone cause they were going to mow & would be out of their way, I wondered what if I had been there.
