Winter storage

I am finishing the completion of my new MH storage garage. It is heated and I am able to extend the slides once inside if so choose.
Should I put the jacks down to relieve the tires or not?

Always put jacks down when putting out slide so to not put strain on chassis frame and for more stable coach when leveled.
What can happen with unleveled coach even with smaller slides.

Hi,

Before you extend slides like the precious post stated you should put your jacks down, however if you are storing your motorhome you should leave your jacks up.

I would put a piece of plywood under all six tires that is to say pieces of plywood that fit the width of the tires. It could be 1/4" or 3/8" plywood.

Since it is a heated garage you shouldn't have to drain any water but I would so as not to have any bacteria form in tanks or lines and also in case of power outage.

Must be nice to have a heated garage for RV!
