Using the Trailer spare tire

Any concern with rotating a spare tire into a plan for tire rotation?
Didn’t see anything about that in the owners manual
My only thought is that now one of my 4 trailer tires will be slightly larger.
But this shouldn’t affect anything should it?

When I replaced the China bombs with Goodyear Endurance tires, I also replaced the spare. And always keep spare aired up just as the others. Better to be safe. As far as rotation it in? Unless I need to for a flat or unusual worn I don’t.

I never have but if you wanted to I do not see any problems with it. I would make sure they all match -size and brand. As far as one being taller if it is it is not like a car where they should be close. On a camper it would not matter.

When I upgraded my Sunset Trail from 15" to 16" wheels and LT tires, I bought 5 aluminum wheels and included my spare in the rotation. It worked out fine except I was unable to rotate them at the same mileage interval each time, hence, the tires ended up without the same number of miles on each one.
