Stabilizer Question

This may be a dumb one but here goes...

When I have my TT at home completely disconnected from TV and shore power, should I have the stabilizers down?

In other words, should that be part of my normal procedure for disconnecting upon returning home?

1000 Thanks!

That's your own choice. They sit for months on dealers lots without the stabilizers down.

Unless your going to be in and out of the unit probably doesn't matter.

Unless you're going to be spending a lot of time in it, I wouldn't bother. In fact, I treat those like slides...if it's not being used, it gets stowed. Less things exposed to the elements generally means longer life and less upkeep.
