Garage heated storage

Hi may i use my levelling jack when my coach is on a ciment floor heated garage for winter storage. Should it preserve tires for flat spot ? Or should i surinflate the tires (like we do for car) to prevend that issue ?
Sound weird but it for next winter !!!!

I store my coach in my attached, heated garage. It's my "Sports Lounge"
While parked, it is on jacks, levelled, slides out and plugged in to power.
One suggestion, use a pad of some type under the jack pads to keep them from scraping the floor. I use four pieces of carpet.

Using the jacks while stored is a good idea to reduce weight on the tires. As I remember Goodyear states to increase tire pressure by 25% over your normal setting, and relieve weight. Give the tires a good wash also. Also good advice for non-Goodyear tires.

On jacks here too all winter. Hate to see the air bags totally deflated and carrying all that weight. Let the hydraulic fluid carry it.

BTW if the jacks give over a long period, check the fluid...

I store our rig in an unheated cement floor garage, on six inch 2x12 wooden ramps with cribbing under the raised jacks. As the air bags bleed off, the coach via the jack pads settle on the cribbing and the weight on the tires is reduced.
