Winter parking

I am seeking your thoughts on winter parking.

We can park our MH under cover away from wind and snow but, the ground is #2 stone. Do I put anything under the tires to keep them off the stone?

I've seen many people put boards or rubber mats under the tires. You might also consider some type of tire covers.

Many tire experts agree that exercising the tires is a good thing. I have not seen any problems with my coach while leaving it parked for several months, but tire deterioration might not be obvious.

Yup, heavy boards under the tires. In addition to getting the tires off the wet ground, it gets them off the big #2 stones, which can, over time, deform the steel belts. Inflate to sidewall maximum for long-term storage. About every 90 day, move the tires so a different spot contacts the board, to reduce chances of deformation/flat spotting.

Some also put jacks down here in TX for long term storage, but I don't know what that does up in the cold...
