Tires off the ground for Winter storage??

I'm a bit new to TT. This is my first winter storage of one. Had Truck Campers until this year.

Do you TT owners put blocks under the spring perches to take the weight off the tires during winter storage?

I have wondered about this. Read here about what the tires are parked making a choice for some folks. Have no clue about the validity or value of raising the tires. I suspect and old wives tale or you would read about it in the winterization processes fold do.

Ha! No such luck- I've learned that you can do a Google images search for almost any search term and just add "meme" at the end. It brings up fairly relevant funny pictures to use in almost any situation. Sadly, we use them in work emails all the time.

Raising them off the ground keeps them from flat spotting but they usually come back in less than a mile. Jacking the frame up if done improperly can cause more issues that to the tires. Over the winter is not a long time.

Every year every cargo, boat, TT, 5er that I have ever had the wheels go off the ground blocked and covered. Come spring before it is time to move I check brakes and repack bearings. When I travel down the road I want to know the condition of my brakes.
