on the spec sheet inside the coach under the driver window, mine specifies: 120 psi on front and 110 psi on rear. i always keep 120-122 psi on front and 115 psi on rear. driving is good and i feel safe.

Running the minimum air pressure may not be prudent. Tire flex causes sidewalls to flex more and build up heat quicker. Goodyear states,
"Tire pressure should never be reduced below the vehicle manufacturer's recommended levels to support load conditions in order to improve the ride quality of a vehicle. The difference in ride quality is not significant."
Too late to edit. Here is the correct Goodyear link: The Inflation Loading - Goodyear RV

A little off this subject, but still about tire pressure. My toad, Jeep, has a tire pressure monitoring system from the factory. Is there any way to tap into this system with a monitor in the coach?

I run 2 systems, Smarttire for the 6 coach and 4 toad tires. Our toad has a factory system, but I have never found a way to tap into it.

Not to my knowledge, I'm running TST sensors on the valve stems of my towed, even though it has it's own system.

To my knowledge there is no aftermarket TPM system that can communicate with the current group of OE automotive TPM systems.

Much as with other parts (oil filters, spark plugs etc) even the most generic of parts seem to be limited on their interchange ability. With TPM there are both frequency match issues and power (distance of sensing) ability.

This is not to say that some company might not make an aftermarket system in the future but I think that is unlikely. Even after 12 years the OE sensors are not a common part with each manufacturer having their own design and radio frequencies.

The best way to know the toad tire pressure is to add 4 sensors to your RV system.

Thanks all, I assumed it could not be done, but wanted to ask.
