Winter storage in snow country

With a few family matters to attend to this winter, we have to stay home this year instead of being Snowbirds. We will get cold temps and our share of snow during the storage period, and the rig is winterized for those concerns.

Is it recommended to put the hydraulic jack stabilizers down to take some of the weight off the tires and suspension, or leave it parked on it's tires (wooden boards under tires) over the winter?

I leave my levelers up just due to the winter exposure to snow etc and the potential crudd getting on them as well as some rust possibly forming. I do put them down if I plan to go out and watch football.

My fiver is covered over and stored until March-April. Other than a monthly mouse check, I'm gonna leave it be. Personally I don't like the idea of leaving 'landing ramps' down for the rodents to climb up and in. The least touching the ground the better.

Well, no one has harsher winters than we in Saskatchewan do and we have stored our motor homes out doors for many winters. Do not drop your jacks. Make sure you winterized properly, disconnect your coach batts and everything should be fine. Once during the winter I go and start the engine and let it run for a half hour to recharge the batts. Hope this helps to put your mind at ease.
