Winter storage

On a 2005 Fleetwood Discovery I recently purchased, When parking on a gravel lot is it better to store the weight of RV on the levelers or all the weight on the on just the tires? for about a three month period. Which method causes less wear an tear? Thanks, Duce 25

I’d split the difference. Put it up on the jacks enough to take some of the load off the tires to keep them more round, but share the load with the jacks. Depends on your leveling system though. But you’ll find either way is acceptable.

My coach is on the levelers 350+ days a year for months at a time .
Winter storage levelers down ; BUT ; be aware that the shafts will get dirty and you'll want to clean them before retracting .
I always clean mine if they've been down for more than a week , or if there's been a hard rain or blowing dust.

Don't know if your levelers are HWH , but here's cleaning info that I got for my levelers.
