I use my slide area with the slide in all the time , as the coach is easier to heat with the slide in.
Some owners , with tile floors, report tiles cracking under the rollers, would this happen if you were not using the slide area, when it was in ? Not sure.

I am pretty confident you would do no damage while leaving the slides in when using the RV. They are most stable when fully closed and fully open. It's the inbetween that is a no no.

Using the RV without extending the slides.... Will cause no damage, the slide is fully supported at either end of travel

Using it with the slides half way in or out may cause problems. Mostly leaks since the seals are not sealed at all when it's part way in/out.
Home is where I park it!
