6 point leveling for storage

I heard or read somewhere that the six point leveling system should not be used for long term storage. Why? I see no difference using 2 of them for storage or all 6. Some of you I'm sure stay in one location for many months. What's the difference?

When we had our Cardinal we were parked for seven months at a time while camp hosting and they stayed down the entire time. I did wipe them down lightly with A rag soaked in trans fluid at least monthly to keep stuff that was splashed on them during rain storms off.

That would be a good idea. Just make sure they are clean before retracting if down for an extended period.

If I recall correctly it does recommend a silicon based lubricant is sprayed or wiped on the legs monthly during the winter.

After you wipe them down with trans fluid, just wrap with a plastic bag and tape it off at top and bottom of bag and you don't have to worry about dirt/water.

This topic has been discussed ad neauseam, references were posted and good recommendations for different types of storage situations were given by folks who actually have or had the subject system so I suggest using the search feature and check it out.
