My Spartan chassis manual states to store the unit with jacks down, so that's what I do.

Vehicle Storage Information Concerning HWH Equipment

53. Can I store my coach with my jacks extended?
Yes, this will not hurt the system.

54. How long can I leave my coach parked with the jacks extended?
As long as you want. We recommend operating the system occasionally if possible.

55. Do I need to do any maintenance on the jacks or rooms while the vehicle is parked with the jacks and rooms extended?
There is no necessary maintenance for the jacks or rooms while the vehicle is parked. If desired, WD-40 can be used on the jack rods right before storing the jacks if dirt has collected on the rods. Refer to the following link for jack maintenance information http://www.hwh.com/ml47149.pdf.

56. If I’m parked for a month or two, should I occasionally operate my system?
Yes, it is good to operate the system occasionally but it is not required.
Good information from dennis45.

Yes, as noted above, HWH does recommend storing with the jacks down. Takes stress off the tires.

Before you retract the jacks, give them a squirt with WD-40 as noted above; cleans the cylinders and helps them actuate.

Mine is stored with the HWH jacks down.

I thank all of you who responded to my question on storage and the use of the jacks. I can see this will be a useful site for future questions. In fact I will be posting another one soon about diesel fuel.
