Lippert 6 point storage

When the RV is not being use and parked for a period of time do you put all the jacks down or just the front two?

We full time so we don't store it, but we do stay in one place for months at a time with all the jacks down, so it doesn't hurt them. Before we went full time we did just have the front jacks down when it was stored and that didn't hurt it either.

We are fortunate enough to be able to store our RV in our own yard, connected to shore power at all times and sometimes stored for up to 6 months. We employ the level up system with all jacks down for those periods of time. We have never had a problem with the system and I do believe it takes some of the load from the tires and suspension which cannot be a bad thing. I see no reason not to use the system for extended storage times.

I also store in my yard at home. Have a building made for the RV. I have all the jacks down when stored. I do spend several months in a CG in CA by my office and use level up there also. Let me put it this way Level Up used all year with no problems.

Same here. Ours are always down except when towing and never a problem with them.

From the Level-Up manual:
4. Remove dirt and road debris from jacks as needed.
5. If jacks are down for extended periods, it is recommended to spray exposed leveling jack rods
with a silicone lubricant every seven days for protection. If your coach is located in a salty
environment, it is recommended to spray the rods every 2 to 3 days.
