I put the Sporty in 4x4 mode every 4-6 weeks to make sure everything gets lubricated / is working ok, either in the yard with the utility trailer attached, or on a dirt road nearby..
I'd engage spin the manual hubs every so often (even if you do not go full 4x4) to keep the grease moving in the hub, even if it's a short distance - not being engaged for a season (3-6 months) is probably ok, but if longer I'd pull, inspect, and re-grease, only because grease has a tendency to harden/degrade with non-use.
