Letting air out of tires

I've been told to let air out of my camper's tires when I'll be in once place for a long time so they don't develop a flat spot. But how much air should I leave in?

I would let out half down to 25 lbs.and have the camper on blocks so
as to take weight off springs. and if in direct sun light cover tires so they will not get cracks in side walls.

If the trailer is sitting with weight on the tires, I would keep them inflated. If you take air out, you are much more likely to ruin the tires. If you have it blocked up enough so there is no weight on them, you can do whatever, though I don't see the advantage of deflating them.

All of it. Cross ply rayon tires are long gone.
