Not according to HWH when I asked that specific question to respond to a post like the OP's some years ago.

I asked Quadra Manufacturing the same question regarding their Bigfoot levelers. They said it is fine to store our Greyhawk with the levelers extended, but they recommend spraying the extended jacks with a Teflon dry lube to protect them from corrosion.

I like that. Using Teflon dry lube at least I won't get dirt, and other items stuck to the tubes as with oil. Good call. thanks

Wouldnt it be prudent to maybe raise and lower the jacks monthly while stored? I start my generator monthly during storage and will cycle the jacks when the generator is running.

Yes indeed it would, as far as I'm concerned. I plan on doing just that, along with the teflon dry lube.
