David,
To know that you are running the correct air pressure in your tires you need to know the weight of your front and rear axle. Better yet each individual wheel position. Check out this link. I'm certainly not a Michelin fan, but this is very good information, including handling your coach in the event of catastrophic air loss.

http://www.michelinrvtires.com/miche...r/RvVideos.jsp

Also if you have switched from a load range G (14 ply) to a load range H (16ply) it will not allow you to run a lower pressure than the G rated tire. Air supports the weight, not the tire. A load range H tire just allows more air pressure hence a larger load capacity.
Your coach should have a min pressure posted also.

Why are you not a Michelin fan??
I have had Michelin tires on most of my cars and vans. The tires improved the ride greatly. I just replaced wore out Toyo's with Michelin's on the rear duels due to advise of a truck driver. Did I make a big mistake?

No you didn't make a mistake. I'm not a fan because of the ride, performance or quality of the Michelin tire. Michelin has a very good ride and builds a very quality tire.

It is only my opinion, resulting from being in the tire industry and the support that is recieved from the manufactures. Most, if not all consumers would never be the wiser.

It might have been better to stick to "just the facts", like Sgt. Friday said.

If you haven't viewed the video's they are very good, and kudo's to Michelin for not charging for them.
