I have the 2011 21FDWP, think there are pics of this online for better idea of how it is set up.....(I don't have any pics right now!)
I had a 2005 Keystone Outback 25RSS before the Coachman. There is a site similar to this one that you might want to sign up so you can use the search feature. Outbackers.com
The Ceiling support rails are more of a guide for the slide out. You WILL pull those rails out of the ceiling IMO. Many peolple had issues with the rails failing just traveling down the road.
Many "Outbackers" made supports to keep the rails from failing during travel.
So to answer your question, NO.. Do not put weight on the rear slide when retracted.
