Well...If it wasn't necsassary to lift both tires I could remove some of the leveling blocks to free up some needed space.
So .. To be clear I am not wondering about long term storage, but for short 2-4 day stays..What are your thoughts about lifting only one tire on a duelie.

I know we wont all agree, and I am not trying to stir a debate. As always you ALL have GOOD POINTS that I like to consider and help me decide.

Thanks again for your feedback.

I don't overload my tires. By making one carry the weight of 2 you will overload the one. Yes it is not moving and have the same stresses as an overloaded tire going down the road but I figure its better safe than sorry. I also just wonder if you get more bounce in the tire sitting on one. I would rather have 2 supporting the weight.

They have successfully incorporated asphalt and rubber for road surfaces. Tests with incorporating cement and crumbed rubber from tires have shown an incompatibility in chemical composition.

For the time it takes a few pieces of plywood under the tires would not be a bad idea.
Maybe I can get away w/ carrying on as I was. My driveway is asphalt, and the lot I store my rig in is just gravel.

Back to the OP's question - Definitely want to block both rear tires on each side as needed. Don't just do one on a side. Reason is it has two tires for a reason - to better support the weight. Even if just for a day, two, or four, you would be stressing the one tire being blocked by carrying all the weight.

If your driveway is asphalt I would only be concerned about rutting the asphalt where the tires are sitting. Unless you have a good gravel base and 6" of asphalt you may have the motorhome "settle" under the tires.
