Question Tire pressure sticker by driver seat

Is the sticker inside the door panel with the tire pressure accurate for the Vehicle as an RV or just as an F450 off the factory line from Ford with no motorhome weight taken in to consideration?

No, look for the one from the RV manufacturer.

Better yet have your RV weighed and adjust the tire pressure according to your tire Mfg. inflation table. Four separate corners is ideal but axle weight will suffice.

That info is for the chassis. As long as the coach builder doesn't build a coach that 's too heavy for the chassis, (don't laugh, it's happened!) the pressure on the sticker should be correct.

Weigh each tire position separately or if you only do by the axle assume a 47/55 load split
Use tire Load & Infl tables
add 10% to the inflation for margin
Inflate all tires on an axle to the higher pressure

You can read a number of posts, some with specific examples of the process on my blog RVTireSafety.com
