When we bought our 2017 Bounder Class A the Dealer the night before we picked up parked the RV opened the slides it was on a slight hill and did not have the jacks down. Due to be un-level the gears on one slide skipped a tooth causing the top of the slide to close all the way and the bottom since it was a tooth off left a gap at the bottom. The entire slide had to be removed and re-aligned.

NEVER open slides without Jacks down and level it is not about the frame or structure as it is more about damaging the gear alignment. It is not an easy fix...

Here is what we have always done and I am not sure why. When we pull into a lot the slides are in and we leave them in as it is easier to set up with them in. The last thing we do when we leave is to pull the slides in as again it is easier to tear down with the slides in. IMO I do not think it makes any difference but this is what we do.
