Question Winter parking

while parking the rv for the winter months should the jacks be put down to take some of the weight off the tires and springs.

You will get both answers to this question. Will you be going into your coach at all? I usually leave my coach leveled because we go into it quite a bit while sitting in our yard but there are also times when I just leave jacks up for a week or two. It will not do any harm to leave them down and take some load off the tires and springs though.

I always put my jacks down enough to re-arch the springs through the winter and have blocks under the tires. With the snow load that I have I just feel better.
