When the air bags are deflated there are some rubber bumpers that support the coach, it won't hurt the bags at all to be deflated. If you don't deflate the bags for storage, they will eventually leak down anyway.

I let the air out of ours to lower the coach and make it easier to get in and out, otherwise that first step can be miserable while loading/unloading stuff.

How long do you store it? There is lots of debate on here about storing with jacks down to take some of the load off of the tires. In which case air bag inflation becomes mute if you so decide.
