ADDED VAPOR BARRIERS
Some people will advise you to lift your RV tires off the ground using jacks or blocks, and while this isn’t necessarily a bad idea, adding an extra barrier between your RV tires and your parking surface will provide sufficient protection. Some materials to use as an added barrier are:
Plywood—Regardless of which surface or terrain your RV is parked on, placing a piece of plywood beneath your RV tires can provide added protection between the ground and your rig.
Plastic Cutting Boards—Repurpose your plastic cutting boards by using them to keep moisture from coming into contact with your RV tires and causing dry rot. You can also use plastic mats as well.
Tire Covers—These covers are designed specifically to protect tires from environmental damage. In addition to blocking moisture and unlike the other barriers we’ve mentioned, these covers will also protect your RV tires from UV damage.
Whatever surface you decide to park your RV on, make sure it covers the full footprint of the tire to prevent unnecessary wear and tear. If you have any insights or opinions to share on this topic, we’d love to hear what you have to say! Leave us a comment and let us know your thoughts!">
