I don't think balancing is necessary unless you feel vibration. Typical car tires weight 25 lbs and have a circumference of 83". 245/70-19.5 tires weigh 75 lbs and have a circumference of 106". A 2 oz imbalance on a car tire is very noticeable at 60mph but I doubt you could ever feel a 2 oz imbalance a RV tire @ 60mph.

When I had my front and rear wheel aligment done at a heavy duty truck shop they rotated front wheels to inner rear as they had slight ware on them and did high speed balance on all tires

The 22.5's on my former DP needed to be balanced. Had a front tire that was out of balance, just about drove me nuts on a trip north. Had both front tires balanced at a truck repair place, all was well on the trip home.
