Quite often, camping and leisure vehicles are parked up and stored for considerable periods of time. It's during these times that certain problems can occur.
Deterioration due to ultra-violet light and low-level ozone causes hardening and splitting of the sidewall and tread surface. Also, prolonged periods without movement can cause the tyres to gain a 'memory' of the position and become distorted. Check tyres and pressures thoroughly before any planned journey – don't be the one to get stuck on the hard shoulder for hours!
During periods of inactivity, cover the wheel/tyre assemblies with waterproof/breathable material. Watch out for cuts in the sidewall, cracks & deformed tyres.Start and move the vehicle regularly. Check the tyre pressures and tyre wear regularly – paying close attention to the valve assembly for any signs of perishing or leaks.

Regardless of use or mileage, tyres have a lifespan. Even a tyre never driven on will deteriorate over time. Natural aging of the composite materials that form tyres occur from day one. It is recommended that caravan tyres should be replaced at 5 years old.
