Quincy Pad

One other thing about my new pad in Quincy. Did not put anything under tires on new cement pad. Good idea, or bad?.

Bad idea. A retired Goodyear engineer, at an Escapee Boot Camp, explained that when tires sit on concrete for any extended period of time there tends to be a black spot where the tire sat when you move them. That black spot is the anti-aging compound in the tire being leached out by something in the concrete. Not a problem with asphalt. He sugessed going to a garage sale and getting some really cheap plastic placemats and placing them on the concrete before you park. That thin a seperation is all you need.

I have had my trailer(s) setting on concrete for years and never saw a black spot.

Sounds easy and cheap so I'm going to do it. Bought clear plastic table mats for $10 on Amazon

I've been parking my rigs on the concrete drive for 20 years, I even drive on concrete roads, I think someone is blowing some smoke
