Storage: jacks down?

Interested in opinions on several month storage of Class A RV. Should I put the jacks down and turn them off?

I live where it is cold and there will be snow. My parking area is gravel and flat.

While the jacks will reduce tire flattening it is likely snow and gravel will stick to pads when I retract in February.

I had one earlier RV with jacks. I didnít put them down and had no issues. It was a Class C E450.

I would leave them up. Only use them if you are in it.

Leave them up.

When they're down they are a highway for rodents and insects.
