If you are going to get winds of less than 40 knots, don't worry about the stability of the unit too much. I live in a mountain pass, we get wind of 50-60 mph during any winter storm, so that happens at least 20 times per year. I don't even worry about the MH, it is normally up on the jacks, with most of the weight off the tires. (The MH is parked pointing due east, the wind comes in at about 300 degrees). I do not leave the slides out during storms, because of the slidetoppers. Only damage I have ever had from wind is a minor scratch from a tree limb coming down.
Now, we do keep fuel, water and supplies in it. We are in earthquake country. The biggest quake in the last 100 years in Ca was here. (8.2 in 1952)

Well...here we go.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Going with the jacks up and bags down. Hoping the suspension will provide a little give to the winds.

Blowing a little now and raining pretty good here in Southern MD. Tomorrow by this time the sun is supposed to be out. Sooner the better....:-)

Thanks again,

Well... not sure what to think. Bunches of trees down but luckily nothing on the coach. Seems to have made it through just fine. It was on its wheels slides in. Hope others were as lucky. Seems to me that though there was quite a bit of damage it could have been a lot worse if winds were as forecast.
Luck to all,
