When in doubt don't leave it out.
Strapping it down can cause issues if you are not around and that wind carries about 100 to 200 lbs of rain....
manufacturers know better.
I'm not referring to yourself but as of late there are many forum members (truck, motorcycle and trailer guys alike) that feel they can strap things down. add things, and alter them resulting in a better idea to make it work. for every one there is probably 2 or 3 who have lost their toys or enjoyment like our friends did.
A buddy of mine blew up his engine in his new Ecoboost by adding a performance device to it. When the engine went he removed it.
TOOOOOO late - the computer had recorded the device and thus the warranty void.
if the manufacturer really wants to they know what causes damage and what was done to do a work around, they are not stupid...
