Moving with slides out?

I need to move our 3810MS about 20' forward, DW has all her Christmas decorations up some of which would have to come down to bring the slides in. Would it be okay to move it with the slides out? I have plenty of clearance, just wondering about possible damage unleveling, moving, then releveling.

I would say run the slides in. You may get lucky and nothing bad happens, but why risk it?

Won’t hurt a thing. Not much different than a hard wind or walking on the slide. Go for it.

Might not hurt a thing but having slides out 3 to 4 feet hanging out in the edge isn’t what I’d like to move it with...

Your asking a lot of the gearpacks and bottom Teflon slide plates I’d retract.

Moving very slowly over smooth surface for 20' I would not worry about the slides.

I wouldn't give it another thought. Just go slow and i see no problem. The slides are pushed against the sides of the trailer and can't move.

If the ground is smooth, slow and careful would be okay.

At the dealership's, they move the rigs with the slides out when convenient.

The key is being level. If ground is level and you move very slow then there should be no problem.
