How do you store your drop down during summer?

I was wondering what people's preferences were for storing your fish house during the off season?

Do you drop it down on boards or leave it on the springs? Anyone see any manufacturer recommendations?

I have been putting mine down but just wondering.

Thats a great question!! Would blocking it up off the springs make the springs have longer life, better pulling suspension? I do know you should get the tires off ground contact and out of sunlight,They will last longer.

I put mine on cinder blocks.

Took the tension off the springs and the tires.

It created great rabbit habitat underneath, but nothing has moved the mouse bait inside the house.

I also like that the house is more solid when walking around inside while working on off season projects.

When storing make sure you grease all pivot points so they don't freeze up from not being used.
