I buried some spaced 2x 6's on edge that the FW sits on because sitting in the frozen mud has got to be hard on the rubber.

Air can kind of move around the tires and they are off the dirt and out of the mud.

I suggest what ever you use can hold up under the weight of the trailer plus the ice and snow accumulation.

Hello fellow Snow Belter!
Where in NE Ohio?

It depends on the surface you're storing it on, pavement? Gravel? earth?

We're seasonal residents at a campgraound and we use pressure treated 2x10s to park the TT on anyway.

I store ours on well drained crushed concrete. I found over the years that wood would eventually cup and hold water. Also once saw a TT that stored with his jacks down, and a tire went flat. Made quite a mess of his stabilizer. Many different ways, not sure which is correct. Been using my method for 30 years with no difficulties....yet!
