The handbook is correct. 4WD should be engaged and spun for at least a few wheel turns every month. This spreads oil on the seals so they dson't grab and tear, and wets the gears, preventing rust, among other things. Find some grassy spot and try not to chew it up. The alternative is to disengage the front hubs , select hi 4 and drive around the block on a regular basis.
