Triker56,

Does Goodyear define "storage"? What if you are living in the RV, say for several months, while it is at An RV park? I would call this "parked". What's the difference between "storage" and long term "parked"? Do you have to do the "storage" procedure?

I full time in my MH. And right now, it will be sitting in the same spot for 7 months.

So I have it level with the jacks, with some weight off the tires.

I also raised the PSI in my 275/70/22.5 tires from their usual 95 PSI up to 120 PSI. And have covers on the tires.

I never have moved it every 3 months like they say. As it would take me almost 2 days to unhook and re-hook back up in the same spot.

My tires are now 7 years 4 months old with no cracks showing up.
And this will be the 8th year for them sitting in one spot for 7 months.

So far, the main concern expressed here is the adverse affect on tires. I think I would be more concerned perhaps with brinelling of the wheel bearings. Any thoughts?

Actual brinelling as distinct from false brinelling needs an impact that is so high that the surface of the bearing is "dented" so I would have thought that would be unlikely where the coach is merely stationary.
Best way to cause brinelling is to drop a bearing onto a hard surface.

Unlikely, maybe, but not impossible. I believe large turbines and aircraft engines are turned slowly when not working just to prevent bearing damage.
