Short term storage between trips

Afternoon,

I would like to know what the general consensus is for keeping your coach in your driveway between trips whether it be a week or a month. Do you dump all the air with the hwh off or do you keep it in leveling mode with hwh leveling system on, or do you keep it in travel mode with hwh on (or off): keeping in mind slides are not out. Appreciate the support.

I park on level concrete so I just park the coach and leave it. If I think about it, I will turn the HWH system off

I just had my passenger side windshield replaced due a large crack on the curved portion. [Drivers side was replaced in May this year.] While the windshield was out I did some testing with the installer as to the flex of the coach. With the passenger side rear air bag deflated the coach twists 1" when measured drivers side windshield at top left to passengers side windshield bottom right. [The installer did not think that was excessive from his experience.] The air was then dumped from the other bags and repeated measurements which resulted in less than 1/8" difference.

Looks like my coach flexes more than I expected.

I'm considering using an external air source for air supply when parked at my house with air levelling system active.

That's a lot of flex. Even CC does that, can you imagine how would those non semi-monocoque coaches perform... Might only Prevost fair better.
