Do you store your trailer outside during the winter?

I do. Hi Folks. This is my first winter storing my 425D outside. On my previous Fleetwood, I would simply raise the frame at rear on 2 jack stands just enough to raise the wheels off the ground, and I sit the tongue on large birch log on end. Am planning to use the same approach. For the 425D or any other model with the fantastic vent, do you cover it with plastic? Any tips or tricks to share?

Outside in the RV storage lot at the U.S. Air Force Academy.

I don't use a large cover (too windy) but do have a cloth cover over the A/C on the roof and over the tires. Also, a small cover over the electric tongue jack and I put the electrical jack inside when in storage. The trailer has a very large awning and one over the slideout, as well, so I use the pro-tech covers for those to protect from the ultra-high UV rays here at 7,000 feet.

A neighbor got brave and just put a brand-new, huge, cover over his so I'll see how many weeks it lasts!!

Outside - but under a 40' long metal shed which has 12' tall side legs. The ends are open and the sides are covered with sheet metal from the top down to 6'. That leaves 6' open space at the bottom. It's hooked to 50a electrical service 24/7.

Stored outside...nothing special other than thorough winterization. No cover...and on the Canadian Prairies winter is as harsh as they come.
