Hi Folks: We purchased a ZT25 Zinger and have not yet used it. It's stored in our yard waiting for warmer weather. Our motorhomes always had an awning over the slide out which opened and closed with the slide. The Zinger does not. It is worth the trouble and expense to put one on or is the weather seal good enough? Will I have problems with leaves or other debris on the slide roof when I pull in the slide?

I highly recommend the slide-out awnings. This is our second Cruiser and both have had slide-out awnings. If you don't have the awning and you are camped under trees the roof of the slide should be swept before closing to prevent leaves, twigs, etc. from getting hung in the seals and causing a problem. To me the convenience of not having to sweep the slide-out roof every time I use the unit is worth the expense of having the awning.

Thanks George, I kind of expected that answer. I'll see if I can get one installed before warm weather.

YES, to all your questions. If you don't check for debris before pulling the slide in, you run the risk of damaging the seals. Toppers also keep that area cooler in the summer sun. Well worth the investment.
