Summer storage

I just bought a 2008 Tropical TX39C,in December.
I am still figuring things out. I plan on leaving it at the Resort I am at,for the summer.
The MH will be in Arizona.
Should I leave my jacks down? Do I need to put a diesel conditioner in?
My model is a TX,but on the front it says LX. What do they both mean?

We thought about doing that with Our last Rig.
But have friends who left theirs in Yuma one Winter. It Dried Out so badly and got so Hot inside that Plastic Melted and Wooden Cupboard Doors etc. Split! Basically ruined the Rig.
If You are going to store it do so Inside not Out in some RV Park Open Lot. Have someone check on it from time to time and leave lots of Buckets of Water inside to provide some Humidity!
Be sure that Your Insurance Company will allow You to leave Your Rig in the USA in Storage. Some will not cover You!

Diesel conditioner is a must, particularly in hot weather that will promote fungi growth both in the fuel tank and throughout the engine's fuel system. There is a product called Bio Kleen by Power Service Products. That works great to keep your fuel system free of microbe contaminates due to long off usage cycles and hot weather.
BIO KLEEN® DIESEL FUEL BIOCIDE: A dual-phase biocide to kill microbes, bacteria and fungus.
