Winter Storage

What is recommended for winter storage of my Class A. Should I store it with the levers down to take pressure off of the tires?

Not sure what's recommended, but I have never stored mine with levelers down. I park mine in my garage on concrete. I have read in the past you should have cardboard under each tire. Not sure what that does.

I would think it is a personal preference but I wouldn't leave them down that long with pressure on the hydraulics.

According to the big book (LOL), cardboard under the tires is to keep the tires from freezing to the pavement. Certainly not necessary if parked indoors or if not in a northern location. We don't do it anyway in MN. What's good for the tires, engine, axle, etc. is to drive it around now and then.

Keep jacks up unless you are going to go out every week and lube the jacks. Best thing is to put stabil in the fuel tank and drive it 10-20 miles every few weeks and run the generator.
