Slideout in or out?

I am new to RVing, and have recently purchased a used Winnebago Minnie with one slideout. Since then I have noticed several motor homes parked in the owners's yards (presumably) with the slideouts in the extended position. Is there any reason for this, or is it just as well to leave the slideout in while the mh is parked for a period of time? I couldn't think of a good reason, but then I am new. Thanks for your opinions.

I usually close mine during really bad weather and open during bright days.

Our RV rests on the rear of our property between trips. Usually only specifically close the slides during bad weather. Otherwise open or closed depending on if I am doing anything inside.

Thanks for the advice. Since I store mine under a carport cover, I would guess it doesn't really matter.

Appreciate the responses.
