Leaving a pup half way up?

While trying to find a leak last weekend, I wet the camper pretty well.
It's in the garage now. I wanted to avoid mildew, so I left it half way up to air out.
Is there any strain on the lift system leaving it in the half way position?

You will be fine. I would not keep it that way for the whole winter but what you are doing is very common. People will routinely pop up the camper in the garage a bit like you are doing after having to pack it up during a rain storm.

I had a roof leak and had to fix it. I popped half way up for 3 months to really dry it out.

I put damp rid in all my campers that I have owned. Helps pull the moisture out. Even when camper is closed for the winter.

Take a 5 gallon bucket and put charcoal in it. The charcoal will draw out odor and moisture.

That is interesting. I have never heard of that before.
