Question......

I'm will living in my 2008 Jayco Eagle 341 RLQS full time. Now should I put jacks under the axles to prevent my tires from going flat?

Are you talking about developing a flat spot on the tires, or actually losing air from the tires? Most tires will lose a little bit of air over a long period of time, so I don't think putting something under the axels will prevent that. I would think that the only way to prevent the tires from developing flat spots would be to raise them completely off the ground.

I would put jacks under the frame but not the axles. Don't forget the tire covers.

Ditto on the tire covers and support stands under the frame close to the axles.

Well as far as the tire covers go I have a skirt that goes all around my 5er. I still dont need tire covers do I? They would be covered by the skirt when all the slides are out.
