The general rule is jacks up. Consider a tarp under to reduce moister

The wording in the thread can be a little confusing...Yes, you should have your leveling jacks up (so the MH is not off the ground). Don't put your jacks down in other words.

In the owners manual of my Greyhawk 31FS it states that if you leave your jacks extended while in storage they may freeze up or be hard to retract. At least it says something to that effect.

My TT never stays put long enough to worry about it. I'm retiring in 25 days so it's gonna get used even more. If you're talking about putting it up on blocks and off the tires, I wouldn't unless it's going to sit for longer than 6 months. I'm not sure I'd worry about it even then... If you're talking about putting the stabilizers down... don't.


Enjoy!

what I meant was to raise the tires off ground in some fashion
