2015 Flagstaff Microlite 23LB Tire Advice

Hi. I just moved my camper to my back yard. The ground is wet and soggy. Is that going to be an issue for the tires?? What is the impact?

I'd try to get the tires up and out of the "soggy".

Some paver blocks from a big box store would work to keep the tires up and out of the mud. Also useful would be plywood, planks, or anything else similar you might have on hand.

Tires aren't damaged from short term exposure to water and mud but given enough time they will rot.

Moisture and water can be detrimental to your tires. Figure a way to raise the R/V and get the tires out of the "soggy."

And if the entire area under the R/V remains wet/soggy most of the time, expect some undercarriage rust as well.

Storing a R/V where there's proper drainage is always preferred.

Agreed. Today my son and I got it up on leveling blocks (yellow square ones) and that looks like it'll do the trick. Unless the leveling blocks sink into the ground......... But I don't think they will. (fingers crossed).

If they do, just put more on top of them. Eventually they'll stop sinking

A quick and easy way to get a stout board for trailers - big box stores sell pre-cut stair treads from treated wood. The larger the footprint the less your rig will sink into soft ground.
