So much for the theory that they will degrade in a drawer when protected from the elements. .
Well, Chuck, the ones for the Federal Government must come from lowest bidder. Ours are crap after less than a year. The pencil erasers don't even work when brand new!

So, after the rubber band debate was resolved, what was the final deal with tire covers?

If the trailer is going to sit for a while, then I am a proponent for the covers. Just helps to protect from the elements and staves off dry rot. I tried to talk my inlaws into this along with tarping the top of their MH. But to no avail. Now the MH with only 5000 miles has dryrotted tires and they have had leaks from the skylights.

I cover the tires on the side that faces the sun. The other side is about 2 feet from a solid fence so no covers there. The only time I do not cover the tires is during a trip.
