Taking care of your RV’s tires over the winter months will keep them at their best, and avoid premature wear and tear.
Perform proper tire maintenance
When you wash your RV at the end of the season, inspect your tires for wear or damage, and the give them a cleaning with a soft brush and a mild soap.
Store your RV properly
RVs tend to spend a good amount of time in storage during the winter, which makes it very important to store your RV properly. You can place your RV on blocks to remove the weight from the tires, or choose a firm, clean, well-drained, and level area, to keep the pressure on each tire distributed evenly.
Keep an eye on tire pressure
If the tire pressure is too low, it can result extra pressure on the sidewall or flat spots, so keep your tires properly inflated.
Protect your tires from the sun
Use tire covers or even just a piece of plywood to keep the sun off your tires during the winter months when in storage. UV damage can cause cracks in the rubber, leading to a blowout down the road.
