We just completed the pad on the sode of our house to store our trailer. It's made-up of crushed limestone. Is it ok for the trailer amd more specific the tires to sit on this for long periods of time. Curious what others think. Thanks in advance for your response.
I had my old trailer on a river rock driveway for about 18 months. When I finally did move it I noticed the tread blocks of the tires had dents in them from the rocks. A friend has bluestone drive and noticed the same thing after winter storage. I now have 2" thick 12x24 driveway pavers where the tires sit during storage. A couple cheap rubber car floor mats from walmart go under the tires. Nice and smooth and no direct contact to anything but rubber.
My issue with the wood it can sometimes cup, holds water and then the tire is sitting in water 24/7 during storage.

I park my Georgetown on a concrete pad. What I do is start the generator on the first of the month, for 10 minutes. I then start the engine and MOVE the motorhome back one foot so the same rubber is not sitting in the same spot. Problems solved.

Get something like this product for long term storage.
I had a set of 4 yellow plastic ones for our 2 trailers. sold one trailer and kept the set for it. I screwed them onto a 2x10 Pressure treated wood and roll up onto them when winter is coming.
also don't forget to cover the tires over to protect against the UV rays and dry rot.
