It'll be a while for me too. I'm on the "Freedom 98" plan.

Perfect thread. I used to use just the pink stuff but I think I will be setting everything up to blow it out this year.

For winter storage does anybody store with the leveling jacks down? I'm thinking not fully down but just enough take some weight off the suspension and tires for the winter. Anybody ever considered or done this?

Yes sir! Taking a lot of weight off the tires is always a good idea and its recommended by the tire manufacturers. You are also going to want to place a mat under the tires to disconnect them from the ground when parked on asphalt or cement. It's not going to hurt the jacks.

Many store with jacks-down just like camping. Dumping air-bags lowers coach about 6 inches so many others put blocks under the jacks about 3 inches lower than the jacks. Dump the air bags and the coach will sit the jacks right down on the blocks without extending. Donít forget, you donít have to hit the level button, just the dump air-bags when doing the latter.

Is it more common to leave the antifreeze in the lines or drain that too for the winter?
