Winterize question

We store our motor home under a carport type shed...not totally indoors. We live in Tx panhandle...cold winters. Should we store with hydraulic leveling jacks up or down? Also...the jacks are going up very slowly...so we replaced springs...still slow...they are HWH leveling Jacks. Thanks!

I've always stored my motor homes with the jacks in travel mode.

When we used to stay the winters while at our S&B in Alberta, I always left the jacks down. Now we snowbird in Florida for five months and they stay down there as well.

I don't think it makes any difference jacks up or down. Exception would be if you have a propane furnace that you are leaving on and the RV isn't level.

If jacks down, clean and silicone spray the chrome now and again to keep corrosion in check. Don't put anything under the rig just in case a jack leaks down and the rig drops on whatever.

With jacks down, spray CRC power lube on each jack generously, will probably take care of the " slow jack " problem.
