Stabilizer jacks

When storing a camper between uses should you put the stabilizers down during this time?

Sure, doesn't hurt anything. Just spray them with whatever lube is appropriate before you lift them after an extended stay, to help maintain them. I use a dry lube.

Over the winter, where we are, I don't extend though.

When they're up, that's four less ladders for the critters to use to get in.

The stabilizers are only really needed when using the slide outs.
