We have a Montana 3197RD. I was wondering if I should block up the front of the camper and take the pressure off the front hydraulic jacks for the months not being used? Not sure if this is worth doing and or any problems of doing this? Thanks JDE

I auto level and spread the weight around all the jacks. It gives the suspension some rest as well.

I've never had hydraulic jacks before, but with all my previous campers and my current MHC all my jacks and stabilizers were (are) always down.
