Seasonal Trailer

I have 8318ss trailer and I am going to use it as a seasonal trailer at a RV campground. What should I do about tire protection since the trailer is not going to be moved unless I leave the campground . Thank You GEM

Remove and store them laying down, in a dark, dry spot or out of direct sunlight at least.

If you have the room two high should do.

You just need to place 2x10 pressure treated under the tires to keep them off the ground. In addition tire covers will help to protect from UV rays. Also tire manufacturers recommend to over inflate tires about 20% over normal cold max inflation. Have done this myself over a 3 year period once and tires were fine.
