Honestly its no big deal leaving gear in the balcony. There's a couple of advantages. First if its wet I'll drip dry out there and not affect anything else. Second the balconies are all high and have plexiglass so unless up really try your gear is not going anywhere. I have a big roller bag that fits all of our gear and sits nicely in a corner though I usually lay it down in case it falls.
