Tires

When storing your motorhome is it ok to park it on concrete or should something go between the tires and concrete? Thanks

During the summer, we just park the MH on the gravel pad next to the garage. However when we put the MH up for the winter, it gets parked on 1" plywood sections on a gravel pad under a large carport. I feel that it is better to keep the tires off the ground during this period.

I have heard you should protect the tires from leaching chemicals into the concrete. Place an inexpensive plastic placemat under each tire.

I went to Camp Freightliner and they said to put something between the tires and the concrete. You can use plastic or cheap carpet.

So I guess some indoor or outdoor carpet would work. Thanks

My garage floor is sealed with 2 coats of epoxy paint. I'm hoping that's enough of a barrier to whatever supposedly happens between concrete and rubber.
