If you have awnings over the slide, I'd pull it in. Last year I insisted on leaving the slides out for awhile, although my wife wanted them in. A squirrel made a nest under the awning and on top of the slide. Now I don't give them a chance.

Lots of great responses, thank you one and all for the many pros and cons..............I have toppers on all three slides, one slide is south facing so is in sun all day........Toppers were an expensive option and I can see the sun rotting them out and my seals.....Kind of a hassle to bring in slides as I have added furniture to living area that has opposing slides BUT! I also want my toppers and seals to last so it looks like I will be moving furniture as I am getting ready to leave........as far as the security aspect I am in the middle of the woods, parked in an area that is mine, No one lives back in where I am so anyone wanting in has plenty of time and privacy to do whatever they want. Been there for years and have never had a problem........Thanks everybody.
