Your coach has air ride suspension. It will ride very good. I would think 90 to 95 pounds would be quite sufficent. I read some of these other comments, but with all due respect, are you going to change your air pressure if you take your mother in law on a trip with you?? I am a retired cross country trucker. Drove the same truck 3.1 million miles with little tire problems. Did I change my tire pressure to match every load?? If I did I would have wasted much time which equals $$$. I could never have made enough $$ to retire. good wishes, old trucker.

You may find this short pdf by Bridgestone very helpful in determining your tire pressures. Read very carefully. Very good information for all RVers.
