Weigh your coach and use the inflation pressure shown on the tire manufacturers inflation chart for the tires used on your coach.

tire pressure

Weighting is the best. If you lightly load your coach as I do, and you know it is not over loaded, you can go by the sticker in the motorhome that has the tire pressure on it.

ual tire pressures?

What mel s said.

I recently had mine weighed with the MH loaded as we usually load it for travel.....full fuel, 1/2 tank water, empty holding tanks, etc. Used a truck stop ($10) and got front and rear axle weights. Using the mfr's (Bridgestone) tables online it turns out that I can lower my duals to from 80 psi to 70 psi if I want cuz I am way under the GAWR for the rears. The name plate on my rig says 60 front and 80 rear......this is fits right in on the Bridgestone chart for my GAWRs.....so the MH mfr planned on me driving at some time with the MH loaded to the max allowables .....bumping up against the front and rear GAWR's (I suspect all MH mfr's do that.....for good reason.)

I like to put tool boxes. bottled water, and other dense "stuff" in my toad....just to stay well under my max allowables on the MH itself..... I believe lots of folks with limited cargo carrying capacity (mine is only about a "measly" 1000 lbs on the placard) do the "load the toad" trick. Fortunately, I have lots of reserve where the GCWR is concerned.

Safe travels.................
