Tire failure in short order

I hope when the owner of the RV next to mine on the storage lot comes out to his trailer he notices the low air pressure in his tires and the cracks in the sidewall. Those tires were made in Jan of í10 so itís time to replace them anyway.

Itís never a good idea to allow trailer tires to get too low on air pressure.

I think I'd leave a friendly notice on the door or somewhere that they'll see it letting them know that maybe they should check them.

I haven't been able to figure out how to do this without leaving a mess if the owner isn't there for a while and it rains/snows/whatevers.

Though, I did have an occasion where I noticed someone was missing a hatch door. I contacted our storage lot manager and asked them to notify the owner of space #123 of it.

Leave the note in a zip lock bag taped to the door.

ZipLoc is a good idea. Protects the paper.

Just packing tape? What wouldn't leave a residue if it's left there a while? I know duct tape is no good.

I wonder when the trailer was last used?

I doubt I would pull it of the lot with those tires looking the way they do.

I don't think it's been used since spring, can't say for sure it he's used it since then.

It would appear not to have been moved in quite some time. Post a note in the sip-lock bag tape to door or to the 5th wheel pin/tt hitch. Later RJD

You might let the owners of the storage lot know too. If they have contact with the owner they could pass along your observation.

Wire tie it in a conspicuous place, like the steps, door handle, etc.
