Most coaches won't hold air for more than a week without the engine running. The ride height control valves continue to maintain level and will eventually empty the tanks.

I dump ours when we park because it makes getting in and out easier.

Hi seabee13,
I dump the air and let the coach sit on the chassis frame.

We have air levelling only and usually dump and then level so that we are as close to the ground as possible.

Our air dumps automatically if I put the jacks down. If I don't use the jacks, the air leaks out in a 4-5 days anyway.

There is no substantial reason for choosing one way over the other - do what works best for you.
