Tire pressure check?

Newbie question. Can you check the MH tire pressure when it rest on the jacks or they must rest freely on ground?

Yes, Tire pressure is tire pressure, loaded or not.

Theoretically the pressure would be slightly higher if it is holding the weight of the MH than if it was off the ground, but in practice you probably wouldn't be able to notice the difference using normal gauges.

Either way you will be OK, but remember to check the air pressure before you drive on it. You will be surprised how high the tire pressure will rise even after a short drive--especially in the summer heat. So always check tire pressure when it is cool and if you don't have valve stem extenders for the inside duals, get one as they make checking pressure much easier.
See you down the road.
