We have never stored ours. When not on the road it is here on our property with full hook ups. We normally leave the slides out for easy access to the interior.

We also have a great place next to the stick house to store ours. We have full hooks ups so most of the time slides out.

Our 2011 3455sa spends its idle time in a pole building with the slides out. Has never seen a drop of rain or flake of snow while idle.

If the camper will is stored in side you can leave the slides out. If outside leave them in. There is much less chance of a water leak.
