Wood or pea gravel / tires

Plan to move my RV to a seasonal site and it will remain at the site throughout this year.

Is it better for the tires to be on wood or pea gravel for a long period of time?

Thank you.

We have ours on pieces of 2X8 pressure treated wood. I have a piece of roof shingles between the tires and wood.

IMO you should stay away from the pea grave because it tracks like cinder rock.

Road mix, 3/4 washed or remove the tires and set the unit on cribbing or blocks.

With the tires off and the unit sitting solid you will have no bounce.
