Iíve parked my 19í Jayco trailer in driveway. Scissor jacks down resting on plastic yellow levellers. Do I need to do anything else to take pressure off the tires? Should I crank the scissor jacks a little more so the weight of trailer is on jacks?
Most don't leave the jacks down in case a tire loses air it will bend the jack. No reason to leave than down.
I would not have believed how much damage this could do if I had not seen it myself. A TT in my storage yard had his scissor jacks down for the winter. One of his tires on a dual axel unit went flat which resulted in a scissor jack failing. When the jack failed it placed pressure on the remaining tire on that side, it blew and the second scissor jack failed. This continued until all four tires were blown and all four jacks destroyed. I never did meet the owner but they certainly have my sympathy.

As others have said, leaving the jacks down during storage is of no benefit what so ever and the longer itís stored the more likely a tire will deflate. The sizzor jack is not designed for the full weight of the trailer.
Just think if a short to the "weather" switch caused the jack to fully extend? I would and always will disconnect the battery and either use a float charger (battery tender) or remove the battery and store it in the garage/basement.
