My gawd man! You must have nerves of steel to park in that space. I am in awe; makes my skin crawl to even contemplate having to park there.

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)

don't believe it, the house was built after the trailer was parked there.

You haven't seen the back lot at Inland--it looks like a Claustrophobes Anonymous rally...

My trailer only gets out a few times a year so far, but when it does get out, it goes for, usually 1,000 miles or more per trip. In my parking situation, it would be very difficult to jack up, put on stands, and wait for the next earthquake to knock it off the stands; So my trailer will just have to sit on the ground. I think in the long run, new axles would be a lot cheaper than right side sheet metal.
Always keep about $500.00 handy, just in case the trailer gets too close to the house.

I would think that you use your trailer enough that placing jack stands under it, would not be necessary.

I have no idea if the cold or heat cause more or less of a problem. But we do know that long term non-use, is asking for axle problems. I would hazard a guess that heat would be the worst of the two.
