I leave mine in to reduce exposure to sun/UV on the slide roofs.

My camper is stored covered on our property. We leave the slide OUT when in covered storage, mainly for ease of getting in and around while its stored. If it wasn't covered, I would likely leave it in to keep the sun off the seals and any potential rain from leaking.

I believe you are not supposed to put heavy weight on the slide while it is in. They are designed to carry that weight when extended and properly supported. Standing on it while they are in could gouge the floor.

We leave the slide in, unless we are loading, because if it's out more than 2-3" we can't get the truck around it on the driveway! When we're on the road, we can get to the bathroom and the 'fridge without extending the slide, and if we want to eat lunch in the trailer, we sit on the couch, in front of which we have a small trailer, so we generally don't extend it then.
