IMO, I would not do that. From what I understand Your slide is not supposed to be walked on unless it is out. At least you need to keep it to a bare minimum and stay off the edge of the slide. Also your seals will not be, well sealed. So if you have rain, that could be a problem or critters getting into your camper.
I would think and I have put the slides partially out temporarily while we have loaded/unloaded the camper. But I didn't leave it that way over night.
