You push you tires as long as you want, mine won't stay on the road more than 5 years. All the sitting is worse for the tires than actually using them.

Yes - TT tires typically operate under a straight axle (non-slip), higher PSI, higher RPM, carry more weight per tire than TV tires. They also sit for extended periods of time which can weaken the tire.

The white wires are the grounds. They should go to the camper frame near the battery.
