Tire Care while parked winter storage

I've implemented the usual suggestions: tire covers-canvas or vinyl
increase pressures 25 PSI but not over Mfg sidewall recommended max
Move the vehicle to avoid flat spotting/tire cracking damage.

What about grass/dirt storage surface? Do I drive the 345 onto boards or is there another preferred option?

Also, do I want to use the jacks to relieve some of the MH wgt from the tires?

Throwing down some gravel isn't overly expensive, and will do you much better than plywood/grass. It won't rot, it will help drain water away from your undercarriage, and it won't grow up into your engine bay come spring! Plus it helps with aesthetics, property values, blah blah

Curious what others have to say about the jacks, if you're going to move a rew feet monthly to roll the tires anyway, I'd leave them up to keep them out of the weather. Just my $.02
