New commer to RVing

Just looking for some information since I am new to RVing. When in storage I have my class A plugged into power, should I extend my leveling jacks or leave them in the retracted position? Also any hints or suggestions for a newcomer to RVing would be great.

Thanks!

As long as the coach is plugged in the Bird System will keep all your batteries fully charged, leave your BDS switch on. picture of Bird
In my signature below there are links to many others that will relate to your coach and in QT's # 3, I have a Bay Star section that relates to your coach.
If your coach is outside its best to leave jacks up so piston rods do not get dirty and when using use WD-40 on them and wipe clean to keep them polished, periodically.
Did you find a manual for your DVD player should post model on Goggle and find?
Have a Brochure or Owners Guide if needed.

During storage I would leave jacks up and slide outs in.

Hi bmunch,
What I do is store the coach with jacks up and slides in. It is great you have power to the coach. The reality is tire manufacturers do not care and the jack manufacturers do not care. The jacks up or down is completely your decision. The slides should be in as there is no reason to have them extended. When the slides are extended, there is wear & tear on the toppers and seals. It also exposes windows in the slide ends as a possible entry point for thieves and vandals.
