coach weight

ran my coach over MTO scales today on way home from camping, 3/4 tank fuel, no water, full for camping, 34850 pounds, if I add 800lbs for water 35626, does that sound reasonbly accurate, was not able to weigh left right just individual axles, steer was 11400, drives 17800, tag 5650, Good year inflation for G670 275 80 22.5 shows I can run steers at 95 lbs, drives at 85 and tags at 85, currrently I run steers at 105, tags at 85 and drive at 95. Steer and drive usual rise 15-20lbs when hot and tags 10-15 when hot.

Can I get some comparables and experience.

Thanks

Moxy

What are the axle weight capacities? It should be listed on a label to the left of the driver's seat. Unless traveling to a desert with no local water, why would you carry 95 gallons of water?

The hot psi readings aren't useful for anything but a science lesson. All tire pressures should be measured and adjusted when tires are at ambient temperatures.

Thanks for the reply, no worries exceeding axle ratings, lookin for similiar coaches and weights, hot readings matter to me if the temperature increase is excessive which was the purpose of my question regarding temps, I do set pressures early in the morning thanks for the advise, not sure what your questions means about the water, I would carry 100 gallons of water if there is no water were we are camping, also known as dry camping, hense the 100 gallon tank.

Thanks

Without four corner weights this is not an exact science, but according to a retired CEO of a major tire manufacturer on another forum here are some general guidelines when you just have axle weights.

Take the suggested PSI from the table, times it by 1.05 (round up) for side to side variation and then add a safety factor of 5 lbs.

Given the numbers you posted it would appear you're right on:

Steer: Table = 95 x 1.05 = 100 plus 5 = 105 PSI
Drive: Table = 85 x 1.05 = 90 plus 5 = 95 PSI
