It's simply a training issue. To do the job correctly requires this.

"Sir in the interest of setting your tire pressures correct on your RV the tire pressure as recommended by the manufacturer is listed on a sticker inside your MH. Do you know what that pressure is??? If you don't know I can list some places where it should be located. Please find that sticker and let me know so I can fill your tires. If you want the tire pressures different from what is listed just let me know. If it's different the tech writes it down on the work order to protect the owner.

Whats so difficult about that????

Time after time I hear tire shop techs say "we always inflate to xxx", seemingly without regard to any vehicle labels, sidewall markings or inflation tables. The better ones say they use max sidewall pressure because they are "required to", no doubt for liability reasons. One even made me sign a release to use other than max sidewall psi. A very few have asked me what I wanted.

The bottom line is you had better know the psi yourself, and check ASAP after they install or adjust any tires.

My truck - My responsibility. No one else's. And yes I always check the oil level after having it changed professionally. Not in their place of business but always when I get it home.

Like dealing with the Russians... trust but verify!

These kind of issues are why I do a lot of my own service. There is only one person responsible for the condition of their vehicle, that would be the operator.

Conscientious employees occur when their mangers nurture them, simply paying wages is not enough. Not even close.
