Are their any cargo weight limitations

In trying to find out if there are any weight limitations on "cargo/basement" storage? If none great!... I will just have the normal "stuff" in the basement, nothing out of the ordinary. I know there is a tire pressure recommendation in the 2021 PowerGlide manual page 1-3. I plan on getting my new rig weighed by individual tires, etc, but I do not really know how to interpret the Max load per tire... other than inflating the individual tires per the chart? Do the individual cargo areas may have weight limitations? I will have one "manual" slide in the forward bay. I have a feeling that, after inflating individual tires properly, this might be a none issue?

The only weight limitation is the overall GVR rating for the chassis. I have ours loaded with everything we need and then some and still have almost 2,000 lbs leeway. By getting individual wheel weights you can reposition heavy items to better balance the load.

Once you get the weights, you compare where on the chart yours lie then use the recommended pressure at the top. It's always best to go to the higher pressure if your weight falls in the middle.

There maybe weight limitations for each compartment, but they are probably well above reasonable cargo that would normally be carried in an RV. ie. You would not want a a 500lb piece on a 1 square foot footprint in the middle of a compartment.
Tire pressure, yes go by individual tire weight/pressure, but all tires on the same axle should be at the same pressure. The highest pressure.
