Continental 245/70R 19.5

I know the topic has been beat to death forever, but I have a simple question.

I am familiar with the tire pressure charts and how to read them . My new coach loaded for travel, except for food and clothes, weighs in at 6380 front axle and 10520 rear axle ( I do not have access to anyplace that can weigh corners). Those numbers are too low to even show on Continental chart. Since I cannot use their chart, I will go by what is posted in coach. The placard in the coach shows a minimum pressure of 82psi. Am I correct in assuming I should bump that up 5-10%? Thanks.

I inflate my Entegra Vision 27A tires (Goodyear G670 RV Unisteel 245/70R19.5G commercial truck tires) to 82 psig, which provides a safe marigin over the its load capacity at that pressure based on its ~17,000 lb loaded capacity.

Great answer IMO. Always better to be a little high than a little low.

Chart minimum is 87 psi. Thatís your pressure.

I stand corrected on my original post. After further inspection of the placard inside the coach, 82psi is the pressure for fully loaded, 7000 front and 12000 rear, not the minimum as I had thought it said.

That being said, I will admit that the charts have me completely confused, so I will just stick to the 82 psi on the placard even though I am no where close to max.
