Motorhome Winter Storage

We live in Iowa and store our 40' pusher on a concrete pad adjacent to an out building.
Which is better
1. Leave the jacks up and store it on the tires
2. Let the air out and use the HWH jack system to just lift the coach to reduce the weight on the tires
3. Let the air out and lift the coach off the concrete so that there is no pressure on the tires.

Some will do number 1 and some will do number 2 and some will do nothing and leave it on the tires If mine I would do option 2 an grease the jack shafts there going to be exposed for a while I've seen some wrap a towel around them and strap it in

I store mine inside a non heated building on concrete. I extend the jacks to take all the weight off the tires.

I store my Motorhome on only the tires. I also use tire covers.

It is parked on a gravel pad, but I was wondering if storing on pressure treated 2x12's would be better than gravel. Thoughts?

#1 but put something under the tires if you are parking on concrete. Good, old cheap place mats from the Dollar Store will work fine.

I put pressure treated 2x10 under the tires and jack the MH up to take pressure off the tires and suspension. Then cover the tires. No probs with air leakage. Also place long pieces of 2x10 under the jacks to disperse the weight. Works good for me.

I lower the jacks to take pressure off the tires and place 2x12's under the tires, been doing it that way since 2005 and haven't had any issues as of yet.
