We have to settle into the Vancouver BC area for the winter and I've been running through various "potential issues" in my head, so here's another one
Is there anything I need to do for the tires to maintain them when they are sitting most of the time? e.g. should I pack up and drive around for a couple hours on occasion?
I recently purchased new Maxxis 8008 tires. They were balanced and I added centramtics balancers at the same time. I actually noticed a difference in the smoothness of towing, the old GYMs were pretty trashed and probably never balanced. But I digress.
Since we're full timing but not moving much, I began to wonder about the tires and whether I need to do anything for them since they wont move much. We're likely to start popping around to various parks in the area, maybe even down to Bellingham for a spell, but we could be sitting on the tires for a month or more at a time. I've only moved it once in 3 months to run to the scales after we'd settled in.
I'm not concerned about UV or extreme cold, we just dont get that here in the winter, but lots of moisture. If the tires end up covered, it's likely because I decide to skirt the trailer.
Our last run over the scales the load was just under 6300lbs (7600GVWR). Last check on tire pressure I had it at 72psi (higher than needed for the weight, but these are 80psi tires, I felt better about being closer to 80psi)
