Tire pressure for storage

Hi everyone. I have a question that I need an answer to ASAP. When you store your Motor Home what air pressure do you maintain in your tires? I have heard all kinds of comments. Would someone please help me out on this one. All help is greatly appreciated.

I run my ties at 86 and have tire pressure monitors that stay on the stems. Over the winter my tire pressure will drop by about 8 pounds especially after the first cold snap. I don't change the pressure during storage. And I don't jack the tires up off the ground as some do. But I do position the tires on one inch thick rubber mats to get them up off the gravel. The reason I don't jack the tires is because I run the motor home 5 miles usually every 40 days to ensure I don't get flat spots. I also run the generator under load using the microwave to boil water and while running an electric heater. The coach stays plugged in to an outlet installed on the outside of the garage.

Some put higher pressure in when storing to prefent flat spots on tires.
Read that these eventual flat spots already are gone after 15 minutes driving.
but if you want to you can go a lot higher then AT-pressure , 20% is what the tires can stand easyly.
But when driving you have to lower them again.
Also jacking the tires up is done , but also unhandy when wanting to keep the motorhome in shape by driving it once in a while.

But there are also blocks to put the tires on , with a curve in it, sometimes called bananas, then the underground is curved and so flat spots dont happen that much.

you could also make a curved hole on the place of the wheels in the storing place , if always the same .
Front tires are the most important because mostly pressure advice lower, so more deflection.

Some write , the concrete underground is also bad for tires.
For that a plastic plate or bag under the tires is enaugh.
