Most Class C rears are recommended to be at 80 PSI maximum.

Take a peek at the door jam in the drivers side of the Ford. You will see the reccommended tire pressure there.

I have the 2006 Granite Ridge, same numbers here. 65ft, 80 rear.

Hi. We also have a 2005 Granite Ridge. Over all it's been a really good coach.

Yep, rear tire pressure should be 80 lb max.

Actually you should weigh the rig axle by axle and set the tire pressures per the tire manufacturers load tables for that weight. The pressures posted on the door are typically for the max axle capacity and you may not be loaded that much.

The pressure shown on the tire sidewall is for the tire's maximum load carrying capacity and is not the recommended pressure. It is usually more than necessary and over-inflating is not a good practice either.
