Do I need to have Levelers down?

Do I need to have levelers down when I am stored on a concrete pad at home?
Is there a rule on how long you should store the RV without the levelers down. We anticipate using the RV at least 1-2 times a month, should we put them down or not worry about it?
The reason I ask is, our driveway (pad) is not totally level, it slants down a bit, so when I use the auto levelers, the left front tire is always up off the ground at least 5"-8''. So, I thought that maybe not using the levelers would take the stress off the left front lift.

You don't say what type RV you have, but the jacks are made to support the unit for months at a time. I would say do whatever you want. If you want to run the fridge you should level it. Otherwise..................

On my TT I removed the stability jacks. Heavy, too close to the ground and I don’t mind the very minor rocking.

No, you don't need to have the levelers down when you store a motorhome. If you plan on running your absorption refrigerator while the RV is stored then you'd need to make sure it's level. If your refrigerator is a compressor type then the level is not critical.

I would put the jacks down and also make sure the tires are on a thick piece of plywood to keep them off the concrete as concrete will work on the tires and you will be replacing them sooner than later. Just saying.
