Smile Long term storage

I keep my 36' Country Coach in my shop with a concrete floor buffered with an impervious sheeting to separate my tires from the concrete. As with many of our RV's my unit might sit there for several months in the winter. Is there any downside to letting my motorhome rest on the tires/wheels or would taking some load off with my leveling jacks be better?

When we put ours in winter storage (Nov-May every year) we put the jacks down just enough to take a bit of the weight off the tires. DH also makes sure the exposed part of the jacks is slathered in grease to avoid any rust that might form on them due to moisture.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Mine has rested on the tires, on gravel, for 14 Wisconsin winters.
