Tire Pressure During Storage

I'm storing our motorhome for the winter, but frequently taking it out for various service, etc. I know I'm supposed to max inflate the tires for storage, but I dont want to inflate \ deflate \ inflate \ deflate so often. I'm moving the RV every two weeks to change the wheel positions. Once I'm done with services, I can then max them out and leave in place for a month or so. Will that suffice?

Save yourself a lot of trouble and simply inflate your tires to normal operating pressure. With the amount of frequent movement why complicate things. My MH sit for up to 6 months with little or no movement and I've never had a issue with maintaining normal pressure. I check and adjust pressure just prior to departing for any extended movement/trip.

I have never heard of changing the air pressure for storage. I agree with bob109. I am a retired cross country trucker. You are worrying to much. I would use normal operating pressure and check them again when you get ready to travel. good wishes, old trucker
