I've scanned the owners manual but cannot find any guidance about dumping the air in the leveling system while the DSDP is in storage.
Do you dump or leave them inflated?

To;, Field Trip..

Not sure if you are extending jacks while in storage,but I thought I'd pass on my info..

I have HWH #610 system which dumps bags automatically when switch is pressed twice ,then jacks extannd and level coach.


As I said, I'm not sure this applies to your situation, but if it works for HWH I'm sure it's a good thing to do ??

Hope this info helps and MERRY CHRISTMAS and Happy New Year-- camping..

THANKS__---- AJBJRVERS

I store mine up beside the garages at my house. I leave it up on the air and it will maintain its height for 2 or 3 weeks and then it starts to lower. Generally I start it every month and it rises up again. It has never deflated to the stops even when once it was 6 weeks. Very cold weather will make the deflation happen quicker. I'm afraid leaving it aired down might destort the bag at the seal over time.

I store it in a covered RV storage lot with 30 amp power. I do not lower the jacks, but have found that over a couple of weeks the front bags drop. I get by every week or so, & let her run for 15 to 30 minutes, & air the bags back up.
Have read that lowering the jacks while stored is not the best method, but was unsure if I should dump the air..
