Stabalizing jack question

Not sure if this is the correct forum. My question pertains to the stabilizing jacks - should they remain up between trips while parked at home (or wherever) or should they be lowered? What about during winter storage? Thanks - complete newbie at this so I'll probably have more questions

I lower mine whenever I am unhooked from the truck and I put some sort of a block between the stab and the ground. Just remember, don't torque them down much. Just stabilize, don't level with them.

I put my front ones down only to help stabilize. when I lift the tongue up there is no danger in distorting them. I forgot one time I had the backs down and lifted up the tongue....... not a good idea.....
