fill the Potable Water tank with water. The coach is setup with this in mind. This is ballast and will help improve handling most cases. Also check you tire pressure and set it for what the MH manufacture states NOT what the Tire Manufacture states. The tires are made to be used on many chassis and in many applications. The MH manufacture has worked with them to best determine the proper psi for the tires.

We used to travel with just a 1/4 till just the other day when in for service and only power available. With our two furry friends and working on the coach all day the bath was short and not so sweet. Just filled up to 2/3 rd. Probably keep the level there just in case.

We keep the coach ready as a life boat should a emergency need arise (such as SoCal wildfires), plus the handling is better. So at least half tank, usually nearly full.

We always have a full tank because we never know if we are going to be dry camping or in a RV park. I drain the tank every 3-4 days and refill with fresh water when we are on the move. When parked in an RV park I drain the tank then refill when we are ready to move on. And no, I do not drain it on the ground, it goes through the gray water tank and down the drain.

Wrong info above!!
The pressure given by the vehicle manufacturer is ONLY right if the rig has never been weighed and you don't know where to start. The manufacturers sticker is for the vehicle when it is fully loaded.
Then after you weigh it you DO use the the tire manufacturers weight/pressure charts!

50% if traveling for a couple days. 100% if traveling longer between campgrounds.

How much water should you carrier?

I carrier about 1/3 full if we are going with a group of R.V's to a camp ground for a few days and if the wind comes up when we are suppose to leave the camp grounds I will fill it up for ballast that helps it from moving around on the road in high winds.
Just a thought.
