Automatic leveling jacks during winter

Can the jacks be left down during storing in the winter season for a good 4-5 months without any harm? Is it better on the tires if they are unloaded?

Yes, my manual says down for storage...makes sense, that's what they are for.

If you can get under and give the rams a rust protectant spray would not hurt.

Don't worry too much about the jacks/rams being exposed to weather...

I have had anywhere from 2-4 mid-size tractors on my place in NE Nevada and they sit outdoors 365 days/year.....Rams exposed, or a part of each ram exposed year round.......Never a seal issue ......And never did any preventative maint on the rams.....

Now--that said----I do rub down the rams on my MH with ATF on occasion....And it sits indoors in a climate controlled barn when not on the road.....I don't think this is necessary and I don't even know why I do it.....!!!
