parked and level question

So a friend and I were having a talk about parking the rig on level concrete.
the bags get deflated and the chassis is sitting on the internal stops for the suspension, just like they sit for months on end at the dealers lots, slides out, etc.

so if your at a spot on say a level pad and you bleed off the bags and open up the slides, why or do you have to put down the jacks??

I dump the air and put down the jacks...it levels, takes the weight off the tires, and is much more stable than sitting on the tires.

We had a Diplomat with air and jacks. When on the road and stoping for the night we did that and the coach wiggled on the tires. The jacks give you a firm foundation.
