Obviously you are ignoring the tried and true fact that an active ASer can only travel 200 miles before setting up for happy hour. That means to get anywhere, you have to travel every day. And therefore with all the twists and turns of transiting the highways and byways throughout our beautiful country, that NS/EW/or similar orientation is no longer considered. Besides, if you are going to replace tires every two years, who cares about the sun? Well, there is the long solar presence if you travel way North. Is this where we work Canada into the discussion? Bet that is why some folks run white walls. I should have known that. Rookie mistake, I guess. Hope I can get a smile some time today. Pat

Again the question is what did the previous user of the tires do? This is why I am so choose as to who I rotate my tires with.

P.S. I like to rotate my tires with Canadians, they are nice and not much sun. I never rotate with someone who has Chinese tires.

Nice one Meeks !

Wait! I am not condoning such blatantly provocative speech or action but merely blurted out my childish glee at a fellow rabble rowser at work...

I've been rotating The entire trailer! (Twice a day if we are in a dry climate) This is such a good thread. Who would have thought to cover the tires? I'm assuming I will need to monitor the temperature underneath the covers though. What's the max temp I should allow?
I've checked, and all the under cover, but outside the tire temperature monitors are foreign made. I just can't trust them. Looks like I'm back to rotating the trailer.

Can anyone recommend the best trailer lazy Susan? It would make it a lot easier to do the turning twice a day. Thanks!

Actually, according to what I read on the internet, a trailer lazy Susan may soon be passé. The new soon to be built Airstream only park in Manhattan is supposed to be modeled after the rotating, shape changing tower in Dubai:

This will ensure that each guest's tires receive balanced sun exposure over the course of his or her stay, and incidentally, ever changing views of New York's skyline. Since towing through Manhattan can be hazardous, optional helicopter lifts are planned from surrounding areas.

So, do you put the Airstream inside a rotisserie, or do you put a rotisserie inside the Airstream? So confusing!

I have seen one of these in action. Best at 33.3 rpm. It creates a light breeze so you can tan on the front or back, your choice. Then rotate counter clockwise and see if the walrus was Paul.Click image for larger version

What step are you guys on now? It looks like y’all have gotten totally derailed although I did like the Walrus comment best.

I love this thread. (My puter or server will not allow emojis).

Emojis are the automatic transmission of online expression. Here are a few things you can do with the "stick shift" version - note - I'm doing this with spaces because doing it without might be read as an emoji and post that way...

: - ) standard smile
; - ) wink

And you can modify with things like an 8 for eyes meaning glasses or % meaning drunk - or noses like ^ or > - or add a mustache with a { - or make a surprised look with a mouth like this: O

I learned that in a foreign country. My advice is as sound as a three dollar bill. I insult myself.

I have no clue what step I'm on. Help me!

This is an enlightened group. I remember the first time I added an emoji to a text message. The recipient immediately replied that I had lost my "man card" for using the dreaded emoji. Of course he and I no longer associate. I would expect nothing less than this level of sophistication from the AS community.
I have lost track of what step this thread is on, and I'm afraid I've contributed to the thread drift. My most sincere apologies.
