How to stable Rv for 3 months

Hello everyone I知 new to this site and it seems there is a lot of good recommendations on questions asked. So here goes, I have a 30 foot Thor ACE that has self leveling. I知 going to a park for 3 months where the RV will just sit. Can I leave the self levers down the whole time? If not , any recommendations on how to remove the pressure off levelers?

levelers are designed to be deployed without time limits - you don't have to do anything..

enjoy

I was advised not to store on the jacks. I think mostly for fear of them rusting. I leave mine on the tires but I also try to drive it (and run the generator under load) for 25 or 30 miles once a month on a nice day.

First: Welcome to the Forum!
You CAN put the levelers down for an extended period of time. But just to be safe: it's a good idea to spray them down with a rust inhibitor/lubrication.

To second what Bob said...I store mine with jacks down, but I clean them with WD-40 or liquid wrench. However (and this is important), you must wipe the WD-40 off with a rag. If not, it will collect dirt and debris. Once you’ve wiped off the WD-40, hose em down with some silicone spray lubricant. Then you’re good to go!
