New owner of Jay Flight 32 RLDS

The wife and I just bought a new 32RLDS. We've made two trips so far and have really enjoyed ourselves. The Jay Flight has been great.
I'm going to winterized it soon and store it for the winter. I searched the forums but couldn't find the answer to my question. I want to know if I should leave the stabilizing jacks down during the winter or should I leave them up?
Thanks in advance for the help.

I leave mine down to support the 4 corners of the frame and stabilize the TT.

It's recommended to leave the jacks up while in storage, I think I saw that in the owners manual. What difference it makes, I'm not sure.
Think you're too old to cry or swear out loud...walk into your hitch in the dark.

I think it's more of a personal preference. I keep ours up, to me it's just gives rodents another possible entry point to get into the unit. During the winter I even raise up the front end so the water will run off the roof more and not refreeze.

First, congratulations on he new TT and welcome!

I left the jacks up last winter for the same reasons stroza99 mentioned. Thoug unlikely, frost heaving is another possibility, and I didn't want to take the chance of the frame warping.

Welcome and congrats. I have always left the stabs up as well while in storage.
