Mine has been set at 40 psi for a while now, and I "think" the last time I ran across a scale I was at about 7200 lbs on the tag.

I find that the more weight on the font axle (without exceeding the axle's or tire's ratings) the better the coach handles on the road. Adding more air to the Tag Axle increase the weight shift to the front axle.

When I carrying my motorcycle I run 40 psi on the Tag.
Without the motorcycle I run 35 psi on the Tag.

The way you load the storage compartments has some bearing on the Tag air setting too.

So you really need to have your Coach weighed and make your adjustments based on the axle weights (not someone else's settings).

Looks like you’ve had your Exe for at least 2 years... what’s your axle weights? IF you have not weighed I’d set the tag pressure at 40 before weighing as that’s the mid point of what many are using.

I found that 45 psi is ideal for our 45' coach. This pressure loads our front axel right to it's maximum capacity, which seems to give the coach the best handling and ride.
