With the travel bar in that position, I certainly hope it didn't cause any damage to the slide and/or the rubber seal. If it's any consolation, I checked my Owner's Manual and the only thing it says about the travel bars is-
EXTENDING ROOM: Remove "Travel Bars" from behind the top facia board located above the slide-out room.
RETRACTING ROOM: Install "Travel Bars" in proper locations as indicated on the wall.
There's nothing mentioned as to which end of the Travel Bar goes where. On our TT, the "proper locations as indicated on the wall" were nothing more than a sticker that said "TRAVEL BAR". These have long since worn off. We learned the correct placement of the travel bars during the training session at the PDI.
I believe you should also have a crank in case you have to manually extend/retract the slide-out room. Also, even though the Travel Bars are probably both the same length, I marked mine "Front" and "Rear" and install them accordingly- just in case they're not.
