I am sorry, I left out one word in my original post, the not! LOL! I'm not going to prove it by letting the air out, OK? LOL!! But, I will not run anything less than the manufacture states in the manual, and my manual says, 120 psi. That's the pressures we ran in the Semi's I drove, and I should tell you, way back when we started we had more trouble with tires, until one day a driver in Toledo, asked what we were running for tire pressures? At that time we thought 95-100 should be sufficient, it wasn't. He said, well there's your trouble, blow them up to 120, and see what happens. So from then on every tire that left the yard had 120 psi. and you can believe me or not, it's up to you, but we NEVER, had another blown tire, after that. Now, another thing, you will never, never blow a tire that's to hard, but you sure as hell will blow tires that are to soft. That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!! LOL!!

Those of you who think you are better off running on maximum pressure should probably read this by a 40 year experience tire engineer:
RV Tire Safety: How to Maximize tire life with minimum effort

Which manual?...The Coach Manual?... or the Tire Manual?

Anyone who runs the tire pressures that the coach manufacture states in the manual is likely not running the BEST pressure for his tires.
The BEST pressure to run is the pressure stated on the tire manufacturers Tire Inflation Chart based on the weight the tires actually carry.

you will never, never blow a tire that's to hard
That is simply NOT TRUE!
