Mount no issue , here in india the hot summer day temp hovers over 100 and so I remove the scope only in park 3 position though I cover it

It is probably better to get a definitive answer from George or Roland, but I think from Park 2 or Park 3 it should be OK to leave the counterweights on. In these positions the weights should not be trying to put any turning force on the RA gear.
