    As I stated in previous forums, we intend to park our 5th wheel (when we buy one) and probably not move it for years, unless its to move to another location within our area of Florida. Does this plan suggest any adverse effects on the tires and stabilizers ? Is there anything I should do short of jacking up the chassis and puting it on concrete blocks, which I think is a little radical? I know enough to keep the tire pressure up but know nothing about the stabilizers.

    I know, RV's are built to travel but after 37 years and 27 moves we're ready to stay in one place for a while.

    Ed, treat your 5er just like a mobile home. Jack it up, put it on either blocks or RV jack stands, take the tires off and store them in large, black garbage bags under the trailer. That will slow down dry rot from ozone exposure. Hook up the water, electrical and sewer lines and install some skirting. :) :)
