New member questions

First, thanks all for the welcome to the forum. Our 261BHS will be stored at our home for the winter. Should it be covered with a proper form fitting cover. Also when camping should the 13' slide have slide jacks under it. Thank you.

Not a big believer in covers unless you have a hybrid trailer (with the fold out beds). I also look at it like the dealer never covers their trailers on the lot... As for the slide jacks, up to you. We don't use them with our 284BHSL. I asked the dealer about another jack mounted to the middle of the frame rail on the slide side but they didn't think it was necessary...

A cover for the AC, being as your on the wet coast.

Slide jacks only if you are setting up for lenghty stay, like months. If your travelling and setting up for a day or two they are not required.
