Tires

Is it OK to use grassy ground to park my travel trailer on for extended periods?

Most will probably suggest to put some lego leveler blocks or a 2x8(10 or 12) board down for the tires to sit on. It will help prevent the tires from sinking (even a little) into the ground. It could also help protect tires from being damaged depending on what the tires may end up sitting on (rock you missed).

x2, though I park on crushed gravel. I use the boards for the same reasons mentioned above, to keep it from sinking in the spring when the ground is soft.
