Coach heading for indoor heated storage soon.  Should I dump air?  In storage until May.

I would. Then you don't have to worry about an airbag leaking down over time at one corner causing the frame to twist.

Yep dump the air, its going to leak out anyway and could twist things a bit so this way its a controlled dump, sit her on the floor.

I thought it was SOP to dump the air every time you park for a stay  :o. I dump the air at all final destinations. kick out slides if needed, then level the coach, unless I go to storage, then I just dump the air.
-Just my .02¢ of input. -Not to be confused with the $2.00 input from others.
