I have stored my HTT with the Stabilizers down- worried about high winds which can whip down where I park it. I do not close mine until the last days....so that I can make sure that any mice who have bunked down can be discovered and removed. I also make sure to keep mine away from shrubs, trees, woods, whatever. My HTT is in the driveway and even though I know mice travel- they have to cover more open ground as opposed to "covered ground". The fabric sheets are key and going from a 17 foot to a 23 plus will require a box or more. I also put moth balls in key corners or possible entry paths- but not enough to start the whole camper from absorbing the smell.

Hearing others thoughts, and my own concerns over the years- let me bounce this off some of you- What if I put the stabilizers down a portion of the way, like maybe 3/4s for added mental support (maybe actual support) in case of winds? This unit is about 5300 lbs compared to the 2800 on my smaller- so I would think it would take one big hurricane to move it. Safe to even bypass lowering at all?

We just purchased a Jay Feather 21M HTT. The manual states that the stabilizers should not be put down when in storage. No reason given.
