Per Goodyear
Goodyear Tire and Rubber .... weighing RVs
Special Considerations

**Unless trying to resolve poor ride quality problems with an RV trailer, it is recommended that trailer tires be inflated to the pressure indicated on the sidewall of the tire. Trailer tires experience significant lateral (side-to-side) loads due to vehicle sway from uneven roads or passing vehicles. Using the inflation pressure engraved on the sidewall will provide optimum load carrying capacity and minimize heat build-up,**

Now if you've done something silly like over tiring a trailer to the point max pressures cause a harsh ride or pounding the trailer or the tire is riding on the treads centers (verified with a chalk line across the tread) then you may have to derate the tires pressure.
The advantage of a E tire from a OEM D tire comes at 80 psi.

Thanks everyone. I keep a good portable air compressor in my truck. Iíve always done max pressure on my truck tires when towing and the TT tires. Iím a bit too anal about it but I am who I am. I do 300 miles a day to Florida taking 4 days to get there. My morning ritual before I leave is to check all the tire pressure and torque on the lug nuts. Probably overkill but it makes me feel better. Iíve never thought the trailer handled badly with the Chinese tires but the storyís Iíve heard of them made me worry. I figured two trips to Florida was time to change the tires. The tire pressures do change slightly each day when Iím in a different state thatís a bit warmer on the way down and the reverse on the way up. Glad for the forum it spreads knowledge.

I run our GY Endurance at about 55 psi on our 10K gvwr trailer. This is just a little over what the GY chart says. Used to run at 80 psi but saw rapid uneven tire wear. I use a TPMS that monitors psi and temp. Temps are normal. Much better wear now and I imagine a better ride inside the trailer.
