Store on jacks or tires

Any opinions on whether to place Georgetown on leveling jacks or on tires for extended storage?

I have mine on the levelers in my driveway because I have the slides open and use it frequently. The only thing I ever do is spray a little WD40 on a rag and wipe them down to remove any dirt so the posts don't scratch the seals when I retract them.

During winter storage I close everything up and take it off the levelers. I also park the tires on pressure treated wood and cover the tires. It's off level so as the snow melts the water runs off the rear of the coach.

Same for us. As we keep two of our three slides open for easy access in storage it is always on the levelers. Also, most of the major tire manufacturers advise removing the weight on the tires when in storage for a long period of time.

Like Charlie I do wipe down the exposed leveler shafts periodically but I use silicone dry lube which is indicated in our manual as it will not attract dirt like an oil like WD40 will.
