Storing for long periods of time or winter storage

We have not received our new Canyon Star yet but was wondering if you all store it on concrete pads or do you leave it on the leveling system for the winter?

Thank You

We store ours on gravel as no concrete in the shed. If on concrete adviseable to drive onto (wood) blocks as tire rubber and concrete interact to the detriment of the tires.

If you park on blocks I've read the tire can be damaged if the block does not support the ENTIRE contact patch.

Some people have recommended these:
Rubber Horse Stall Mat, 4 ft. x 6 ft. - Tractor Supply Co.

Plywood under the tires is adequate.
