Parked on Dirt/Grass for 7 months. I put concrete pieces under the tires and jack pads. Take some weight off the tires with the jacks and level the MH. Add a extra 20% PSI to the tires. Cover the tires.

OH! Then I also live in the MH for those 7 months.

Bought a $250000.00 motorhome, Was really gonna take care of it. We all do that Right. After every outing befor putting it into the gerage i would scrub the tires man they looked good . Well buddy 2 of them blew out before they were 2 years old, 275x 22.5 s. The zipper blowout and both blew out to the inside, RF taking the air line with it , And the inside LR duel; I am quite puzzeled on the correct care of the tires. Oh The gerage has a cement floor but i drive it on 1/2" plywood.;; What is right;; Life is good, Oh I run 95 lbs air in them. So the old line of underinflation. Don't work here;;

It may work, as you never gave the complete size of the tire or your 4 corner weight.
You do know what the 4 corner weight is right?

What 95 PSI is rated to hold in a Good Year
G670 275/70 S-5,630 D-5,180
G159 275/70 S-5,305 D-4,960
G670 275/80 S-5,745 D-5,305

What 95 PSI is rated to hold in a Michelin
XZA2 275/70 S-5,400 D-5,305
XZE XRV 275/80 S-4,805 D-4,410
XZA3 G 275/80 S-5,510 D-5,070
XZA3 H 275/80 S-5,940 D-5,485

As you can see not all tires are built the same for a 275 22.5 a Single there can be over 1,000 lb difference.
A $250K MH is probably not very light when loaded for the road.

My old $37K MH did take more then 95 PSI on the XRV tires. But after 2 zipper blow outs with them. They are no longer any Michelin's on it now.
