So sorry, yes I meant tire covers. I will need these to put it in storage which will be in an outdoor, open lot. I was told by the dealer to drive it up onto some 2x6 boards and then put tire covers on it. I'm just sure which brands are better and what to look for.

I bought a set from CW. If you have wheel covers like I do on our Palazzo it is recommended to get one size larger for the front. The wheel covers stick out further than the rears.
I always use the covers if parking for over one night. People say it saves the tires from weathering.

Driving along today and the dash gauges did a reset. Speedo & tach went to zero and the display went through it's initialization just like when you turn the key to ON. Has anyone else experienced this?

Far from there. At Camping World in Akron, OH. Got here at closing. Was able to purchase two water hoses, 10' & 25' to go along with my 50' hose. They allow overnight parking, 8 spaces with four 30 amp services to use. First come, first serve.

TDC Rally

Any Palazzo owners going to the TDC rally in Goshen. Believe it's October 6 - 11.

Since our tires are over 8" wide a 2x6 is not nearly enough, at least 10" wide and then you need to be careful to center it so nothing hangs over the edge. With dual rears you will need 6 of them and of course pressure treated lumber for outdoor use. You will find it easy to go right over them if they are not long enough.

Here is another option. The big box stores sell packages of anti-fatigue floor mats for use in garages and workshops. I have seen them in plain gray packages of 4 and very colorful packages larger. They are easy to cut to a desired size and i use them for knee pads when checking tire pressure, utility bay setup/disconnect, or any other time I want to avoid knee on the the hard pavement, ground, or sharp gravel.

I'd like to find out more about the seminars being offered at the TDC Goshen rally. Checked out the website, but there are no details.

Thanks, Jerry. Glad I asked here! What height should the boards be? Is one board (2" high) enough? And how long do you recommend the boards be? I wasn't sure since I am new to all this and really am flying blind here.

I like the idea of the anti-fatigue mats, too, since I can cut them wider for the rear tires. Again, how thick/tall should these be? Is the thickness of one layer enough or should I stack them, maybe glue them together?
