leveling jacks

I have heard that keeping the leveling jacks down for extended period of time is not a good idea. My question is what about if I plan on living in my RV parked at an RV park as a long term tenant?

I did check for an answer or previous thread could not locate one. or I am no good at using search.

From Lippert's manual. They do not state how long the jacks can be down. Myself, if I keep my jacks down I exercise them every now and again just to keep the seals lubricated and this also causes me to exercise the slides as well. Moving parts that are stationary for long periods of time seem to break.

If jacks are down for extended periods, it is recommended to spray exposed leveling jack rods with a silicone lubricant every seven days for protection. If your coach is located in a salty environment, it is recommended to spray the rods every 2 to 3 days.
