Hi, I'd like some advice on what to use to keep my tires off the wet grass while I park my rig on the grass in my backyard for 2-3 months.
Bought some approx. 2" x 8" x 16" concrete pad like blocks, drove up on 'em but the broke up into about 3 pieces. Ground is real wet up here in rainy Washington state.
I've read it's not good to park on grass in the moist months, and I want to keep it out of my driveway for that time. Any pointers on what to use or do?
Thanks,

You may want to look at the Landing Strips available at this site. They come in two widths. One for the front tire and one for the dual rears. I use them in my storage building to keep the tires off the concrete and they work great. From $19.95 to $39.95 per set. This company also makes a "creeper"
that you lay under your motorhome and slide under it. Works excellent.

Usual disclaimers.

On an old segment of RV today they talked about using carpet mats that you put under your desk. I found that Sam's was selling them for $15 each. Got four and now the tires are off the ground.
