I bought these for storage...
 
Anyone else use these? It says they're good for storage because they're rounded. Gotta be better than leaving it on the ground. I'll use the stabilizers just for safety but I would pull it down off of these when it's time to load and go on a trip. https://www.mytoytruck.com/shop-tuff...changing-ramp/

I will add, we had a flat on tt and this worked GREAT. Loosened the lugs then pulled it up on to the good tire and changed flat. I think it took under 15 minutes total.

That link is bad. Do you mean one of these: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=tire+ramp...f=nb_sb_noss_2


We have the Trailer-Aid and used it for flats on our old fifth wheel. Works as expected. We, Thank God, have had no flats on our Arctic Fox TT so far. Not sure what you mean about storage. Just to get the tires off the ground? Buy a 2X8X8 and cut it in half. Costs less than $10

Made my own, due to independent suspension the lift isn't quite enough...

yes to get it off the ground

Due to water standing in the area where it's parked. I need it more than 2 inches off the ground.

Sorry to change the subject but parking over standing water is not my idea of a good way to store anything. You'll have a constant moisture source eating away at the bottom of your RV.
Some fill and a rake might be a good cure.

I agree and it's in the works but I want those tires up now. I already have 1 of the jacks so another $39 to get it up off the ground is no big deal to me. Not to mention even though we're in SC we have that red georgia clay so the farther it is off the ground, the less red clay my tires and covers get on them.
