Have read a lot about hyd. jacks for winter storage. I have got Atwood electric jacks, would it hurt anything to leave MH on jacks for say 2 to 3 months during winter in storage?

Whenever I see this question I think that no one ever questions going south for 3 or more months and leaving the coach on the jacks while being used. Any time I park the motorhome, for use or storage I level with the jacks.

No problem with leaving jacks extended, just be sure they are clean before retracting to prevent damaging seal with dust & dirt that may have acumulated on the pistons. Use whatever meathod you manufacturer recommends.
