RV storage

I have been told that when storing my RV over the winter I should not have the wheeels in contact with the ground. Is this true

I put mine on blocks of wood just to keep it from sinking in too deep. There are many different opinions on this.

Some tire manufacturers suggest getting the weight off the tires. I try to do the same when I can. Both my boats are stored with tires off the ground.

Don't know if it does any good, but when I put mine back in storage I back it over 2 2x12's. Keeps the tires off the ground. Always have the jacks in the up position. If you look at others stored, they get put up in all type of conditions.

I just park mine in Florida for the winter, and cover the tires. My BIL parks his in a heated shop, jacks it up and deflates the tires. This is after a thorough wash and wax.

Slides in. Tires inflated to max pressure. Camper completely emptied. Damp Rid and mouse prevention placed through out the inside. Water lines filled with antifreeze. Batteries removed. Stabilizer jacks up. Camper covered. Pout until Spring.

You'll see a hundred different ways people store there trailers. I'm on concrete and I treat the tires and put covers on. I cover the trailer also. Live in the Midwest.
