21 New Aire in Storage

My New Aire will be in MY storage for~~2 months, enclosed, insulated, sensible temps, humidity control, plugged into 50A with a Watchdog and on jacks.
Do not have anyone with particular knowledge about operating the coach, especially the Silverleaf. QUEST: OK to let it just sit or should all systems be operated occasionally, roof air conditioning, OASIS, Cummins engine, and should even the jacks be retracted and cycled during that time ? What is the greatest concern during the idle time ? Thx

Greatest concern? Power interruption and subsequent battery damage. For any one of half a dozen reasons from a tripped GFI somewhere to surge damage, to someone pulling the plug on you. If it's not monitored, then lift the battery cables. Everything else will be just fine sitting there.

I am sure everybody will have a slightly different opinion on this, as usual.

I think 2 months is nothing to sit when plugged in with the wonderful environment you described. I would not even bother to put on jacks. Some people park their rig at an RV park for that long! Now six months would be a little different.
Take me on and you take on the whole trailer park!

We park our coach at the house, outside on a slab. Our current coach and our last two DP's were all left connected to 20 amp power with the refer on and the jacks up. Sometimes we go a month between trips and occasionally three months between trips. We never did anything to the coach in between. Modern tires do not need the weight removed and don't flat spot like old nylon tires.

The worst thing you can do to a diesel is to start it and not drive it for at least 20 minutes.

My Winnie sits next to my house for 2-3 months at a time.
My 2007 sat all winter, since I was still working.
Plugged in, Jack up.
I always excerise my generator once a month
My 2020 I run the Aquahot once a month.
If was indoors, I wouldn’t worry about running the Aquahot or the generator for a month or two.
You can always, put cellphone in the motorhome, use it as a hot spot and monitor the power with something plugged into the motorhome and connected to the WiFi.
I have a WiFi Thermometer in mine with a Google phone set to hotspot plugged in and use Tello 2G ( Tello allows hotspot use ) plan every momth to monitor it. Cheap service uses T-Mobile If it goes off line you know you lost power and you need to address the power issue.
Here is the link to the WiFi Thermometer.
PS I wouldn’t put the jacks down,.
