Windshield wipers and snow

I thought I had read somewhere that its a good idea when storing the motorhome to put tennis balls under your windshield wipers to keep the weight of the snow off the arm. Does anyone do this and does it have a negative effect on the spring in the arm?

Never heard it helps with snow...... I thought it kept the rubber blade from being bent while in contact with the glass, and taking a "set" which leads to poor wiper performance.

That's what I understood also
