You will be in high winds for a longer period of time though, you might need to move for some reason and not needing to air up the system would save some time.
Personally, if I was in the situation. I would have the back of the coach facing the wind. Less area to be directly hit by flying objects and less surface area to rock the coach. I would try to keep the front from being exposed to the wind the best I could.
If you are parked between large loaded 18 wheelers, they offer some protection from anything flying around.
Glad you are off the road to ride this one out.

As stated, probably better to have the rear facing the major force of the wind. However, be aware that when hurricane/storms pass that have high winds, the wind reverses sometime during the storms travel, depending on the trave of the storm. A North/South storm will start out with winds coming from an Easterly direction, but as it passes the circular motion will have the winds coming from a Westerly direction
So how did you do?.
