Florence hurricane winds and rain.

Curious, our fr3 is in outside storage. Winds probably will gust to 50mph in Charlotte, NC next 3 days. Do you think we should put down our leveling jack's just touching the ground to stabilize the rock & roll. We also are deciding to park it so the main winds and rain will hit the rear of the motorhome so as to protect the front windshield but it's leaves the back of the ac's to ketch water and winds. Any thoughts?

Thanks, after thinking about it, the front always sees 65 mph.

We had a bad storm go thru here a few years back,,, our local dealer had there units facing South,,, because they are on a hwy that goes North & South,,, they had about a dozen units get blown over !!!
They had no jacks down either !!!

I prefer to park nose into the wind and leave the jacks up, that way it will "give" with the wind. YMMV
