Have you had the RV weighed and adjusted the tire air pressure according to the tire manufacturers inflation charts ?

Over-inflation could be most of the problem ; BUT ; until you have your weights and make sure the tires/axles aren't overloaded , you'll just have to put up with the issue.
So get your RV's four corner weights ASAP.

In the RV, possibly near the driver's seat, there is a placard gives lots of information about the RV. One of which is what RV manufacturer suggests for tire inflation - what does that say?

Get your loaded for travel weights and check that weight against the weight load rating on the tires, and the axle weight ratings, wouldn't be the first RV overloaded from the factory.

JMHO: If the coach requires the tires be inflated to their maximum to support the weight, could be it's time to look into tires with a higher load rating.
