Strict use of tyre covers any time the wheels aren't rotating is enthusiastically recommended by the manufacturers and retailers of ----------- tyre covers.

You should replace them in seven years anyway.
You shouldn't store your RV in direct sunlight just because of the damage it will do to the roof & sidewalls, keep the tires clean & at least in the shade & they will be fine.
Guy that lives near the equator with a 2014 coach is making recos... I think Ive read it all now on this site.

In order to not be in "direct sunlight" that requires an enclosed garage of say 600 sq ft. Well call it 20x40 for math purposes. Even a metal building with a concrete pad (6") will be north of $12k. You can fit ALOT of sun damage for that money.
