Deflating

I will be deflating my rib and putting it in to storage - maybe.

Question: When I deflate, what should I be aware of, like will the tubes come off the bottom or does everything stay in place by itself?

Thanks in advance.

Why deflate it completely?

Bleed it down until you can easily push your hand half way into it and leave it be. Even if it gets hot it won't get more than 1/2 psi in it, and with minimal air in it there won't be any folds created, possibly causing a weak point.

I am not deflating it completely, just enough to fit in my van to get it to a storage unit. The Dink is for sale. When I get it to my storage unit it will be re-inflated.
