I run my front tires at 110. Early am.,if we were going to travel, they read 104/05. If we don't travel and I check them in the afternoon they could read 115. Now I know that cold and warm affect the expansion but should I bring them up to 110 in the morning? When I do the ride is adversely affected.
Have a nice day

Chris, if the load chart specifies 110#, then that's where you should set the pressure before every trip.

Whether it's summer or winter, set them at 110#.

It doesn't matter what the pressure is at the end of the trip or during the trip unless it drops below 110#.

Chris & Debbie, When you put your generator out there should be a tag on the firewall. Close to the fuel fill that designates your tire pressure. Per WRV we are supposed to stick with that pressure. I would not concern myself with bow lines, bowlines or stern lines.

Ted: What about spring lines and rode? Also, I recently changed to the Goodyear G670 tires. I know the weight of my coach and the goodyear tire chart calls for 110 front and 100 rears. I think I should be following the chart rather than the tag on the generator. All opinions will be most appreciated.
Keep a tight line

Chris,
I have the G670's on mine, and that is what I run (110 front 100 rear cold).

Chris,

Before you can determine the proper air pressure for the front tires, you need to weigh LF and RF tires individually. Then I would adjust the air pressure according to the Goodyear charts. A tire is designed to flex in a particular area of the sidewall. Over or under pressure changes those flex points.

Remember this is just my opinion, when you weigh and adjust according to Goodyears charts, that's their opinion.......the have more $$$ than me .

I do run 3-5 PS I over recommended pressures. No particular reason, just a fudge factor for my air guage. No telling how many times I've dropped it .


Hugh, we are up at Eastman Lake this weekend. It was so quiet this morning at 5 AM when I took Kayla for a walk, it hurt my ears

Chris & Debbie, I would double the spring lines and forget the rode as the spring lines will take care of that unless you are using straight nylon which has an 18% stretch. Go with Yale lines and you will be quite secure. Do not pay to much attention to Tom & Patty as they truly know what they are talking about. I guess we have all boated a bit, eh. Paid head to Mr. Tom he is is an expert on tires. Does not know a d*** thing about boats. Also has a very slow car.

Huggie, only Tom & Patty's part. Very quick wit, by the way.
