Storage (Probably A Rookie Question)

I have been RV'ing for years. Campers and Fifth-Wheels, up until recently.
We bought our first Class A a couple of months ago. This is the first I have had with a leveling system.

I store my RV in an insulated building on concrete.

My questions is: Store with leveling system down or up?

Thanks in advance,

Your choice. I store my coach inside on concrete with the Jacks fully extended. I raise the tire pressure if it is going to be sitting for more than a couple of months. I use my coach as my "sports lounge" so have it plugged in and the fridge full.

Our MH is on jack stands & shore power in the back yard when not in regular use. When we are not going to use it for a couple of months it is covered (the sunny side wheels are covered all the time). I also winterized the water system, (Nov-Feb) and run the generator with a load (HVAC in summer, flood lights in winter) once a month, as well as checking on that batteries and airing out the refrigerator (which is off).

Also when we "put it in storage" I call the insurance company and change its status and get a refund for the remainder of the term.

I can do this easily because the MH is just a few steps away for our back door.

Sometimes I have jacks down, sometimes not. If I need to open the slides for servicing or other, jacks are down, otherwise they are up.
