Set the psi to what the maximum is minus 5# and forget about it unless your're over the vehicle's gross weight which then, the psi no longer matters.
If something happens to a tire, I'll know it wasn't due to under pressure, and since I keep it 5-10 psi under max it will not be due to over pressure. So. I'll ride on the safe side.
Batman, you have a beautiful coach there and I'm happy that your formula for setting tire pressures works for you.
On my coach, however, 5# under the max psi on the sidewall or placard is >18% above the pressures defined by Michelin and will literally jolt the fillings out of my teeth. I know. I've tried it. So please stick with what works for you but don't tell me I'm "silly" for wanting to get the pressures right on my rig so I can enjoy my ride as much as you enjoy yours.
