I agree with washing tires, using 303, covering and driving to increase tire life.
I've also found out it helps all tires, not just Class A. [emoticon]

Soap and water to clean. Covers to protect from sun light. Nothing else is needed.

Michelin says don't use anything on them other than soap and water.

Did you ever notice how much non-¢ is marketed to RVers. We are sold things and told to do things that we never though about doing to our cars.
I for one just wash my tires, like I do to my cars.
If you want your tires to look like new, wet them and scrub them with Super Clean. Super Clean will roll the dirt out of the pores and make them look new, NOT dressed.

Advise from our owner's manual, 2015 Tiffin open road, is use nothing but soap
and water for cleaning tires. Keep covered when parked for any length of time.

I find that it's time to give the RV a good cleaning. I have a 2006 Winnebago Journey with 255/80R22.5 truck type tires. These run at high pressure and I understand that they can fail catastrophically.

I usually would put a product like Armourall on the tires to supposedly provide protection from cracking, etc, but have seen articles recently that say that silicone based products are actually BAD for tires.

So, what, if anything besides soap and water should I do to increase the life of these tires. They cost a bundle each and can be a very bad thing if they let go on the road.

thanks in advance.

Main thing is for keeping them covered up, when at all possible. We don't bother for a few days stay, but do so for any length of time. Other than that, just keep them clean.

If your 2006 Winnebago has original tires then its time to put them in the trash can and clean the NEW tires with soap and water.

For sure, check your tire dates. See https://www.tirebuyer.com/education/how-to-determine-the-age-of-your-tires for info about this.

If they are over 7 years old, I would strongly recommend that you replace them.

303 is a great product but will only delay damage by a small amount. Using covers for anytime you are sitting in one place for more than a week is probably the number 1 thing you can do

I use Aerospace 303 regularly.

A former Country Coach fellow owner said he'd had good results with Sunblock. It is applied like a paint one time. He said it had worked well for him on a few sets of tires.

https://www.amazon.com/SunBlock-For-Tires-Tires®/dp/B0043MZHM2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1548259534&sr=8-2&keywords=tire+sunblock

I also 'exercise our tires' (Along with our coach!) on a 4-6 week schedule, getting everything back up to temperature. And maintain proper PSI based upon Four Corner weights.

Regular inspections for signs of damage from these harsh roadways we travel on.

Best to all, travel safe, have fun,
Smitty
