Now what if I had aired them up to 100 psi at 0 degrees. After 20 miles what would they be at?

Now we are where it is warmer and they are running 105 psi.

Think about this a while.
Air pressure fluctuation is about 1 psi per 10*F. If your tire pressure is differing more than that it is likely due to moisture content of air in your tires.

I suggest reading this pdf from the Rubber Manufacturers Association, Chapter 5 pertains to RV tires. Read page 55 closely, as the subject is load/inflation charts and the RV tire placard.

LUVRVLVR,

We have a 2014 Winnebago Journey 36m. The individual tire weights are:
LF- 5500, RF-5000, LR-8160, RR-10,600 for a total of 29,260.

To be exact the rear tire difference is nearly 2500 pounds!

It was suggested that we carry weights to attempt to even the load, but that seems like something we do not want to do. Others have said, relax and enjoy the coach!

So tell us, all of you experienced RV'ers, what would you do?

After looking at your floor-plan the RR weight difference is most likely due to the full wall slide.

That's my guess.

Just make sure that you use the 10,600 in calculating your tire psi for the rear duals based on the worksheets that have been posted on this thread.

Enjoy the coach and don't worry.

And can you explain why you think that?

With a full wall slide on the passenger side I believe both the RF and RR will be heavier than the OS.

THIS link will give you ALL of the specifications for his coach and model.

I don't think there is anything wrong with the 29,260 total weight for the coach. It is well within the specs stated by the manufacturer.

Where are you getting YOUR information?

first off my 2 side journey only weighed 22,000 lbs.....so I question his at 7,000 more...

next I agre with you the rf and rr should be heaver.... his the lf is heavier

so that being said it would be twisting the whole chassis and the roof would pop off

again, i'm puzzled ...no matter how try with a model if I put extreme pressure on the right rear.... the left front becomes lighter.... the only way to increase the preasue to the left front is to bend the model...(twist)


so for me ... I would have it re weighed.... I weigh my own and see whats what...

the other reason for the questioning is maybe it's the stuff he loaded in the coach.... if I knew what unloaded weight is ... might help solve the mistery

Did not have the coach weighed when empty, but don't have any thing that is really heavy ( kitchen aid mixer or sewing machine).

It seems to me that it is the way the coach was built: on the right is the full wall slide, the microwave, stove, washer and dryer, DEF tank, and an additional outdoor fridge/freezer. Hard to overcome all of that with the limited storage on the left side. All I can think to do is move as much heavy stuff as possible to the right side of the basement storage.
