I was wondering about when you have rv parked at home.....do you use jacks to level rv or not.....sometimes a few weeks between trips or up to a month at times?

Level is not necessary unless you're running the fridge.

which we do when we're parked at home so, yes, we deploy our jacks when we're parked at home.

Have a level spot to park and don't put the jacks down.

Welcome to the forum. I put my jacks down even if only for a few days, to take the weight off the tires and suspension. Also if I have the refrigerator operating to keep it level.

Yes, it's good for the suspension and tires. Besides, these are jacks not stabilizers.

Most people that full time use their jacks 24/7 in all kinds of weather conditions. Taking some of the weight off of the tires and suspension seems like a better reason to have them extended when parked than to try to save my jacks from some unknown problem that may never happen.

I park on the level and keep the jacks retracted.
I can lift my Southwind off the ground so, I guess they're jacks, not stabilizers.
