I’m fairly new to RVing and I bought a 31-foot Class A motorhome that has the HWH hydraulic leveling system.
I live in Upstate, NY, and the winters are pretty fierce here. I store my motorhome in a 35-foot carport (RV port) and would like to know if when storing my rig in the winter, should I have the jacks down to take the weight off the tires or is this not good for the leveling system? It’s just not possible to move the rig in the winter to change the tire position. —Michael
It is indeed permissible to extend the HWH hydraulic levelers during any period of non-use. Another reason why I’m a fan of HWH. Just be sure to wipe down each leveler before retraction in case moisture, dirt or debris has gathered during the time it was under the carport.
It’s always commendable to remove the weight on the tires during a storage period if possible. Just don’t extend the levelers enough to raise the tires completely off the ground. Just take a little weight off them and you’ll be fine. And be sure to check the level of the fluid in the reservoir, too!
