Default Storing RV on Jacks to Save Tires

Hey There, Did some searching but couldn't find too much on this. Do you guys lift your rigs and place them on jacks between use as not to flat spot tires? I have one of those air bottle jacks, so lifting it is no big deal. Just wasn't sure if this is overkill or a problem that I didn't think of.

It is a good idea, but it is a pain for most people.. I was also told to let most the air out while in the air for storage.

Just make sure you have the chassis supported well

So far our biggest non-use gap has been about 45 days. I suspect that this may go up but I hope it doesn't

If you were storing for over a year I'd consider it. it's a PITA to do and you have incredible tires not china bombs
