Also, Tireman...... I've been told that all tires on the same axle have the same pressure, regardless of the individual wheel weights. True or False?? Enquiring minds want to know.

Boowho??

P.S. "You da man" when it comes to tires. Your credentials are impressive. I also notice you are from Akron.

I was also under the same impression that Boo stated that tires on the same axle have the same pressure. If you could verify if this is true or if it is not it would be appreciated.

I also agree with Boo's statement about you being the tire expert here.
Thanks for your input.

tmmar & boowho
Yes all tires on any axle should have the same inflation.
For motorhomes like immar's that would mean his minimum inflation should be capable of handling 4830.

For motorhomes, Look up your size in the tire mfg's load/infl table and find the inflation that is rated for 4830 or more. That would eb your MINIMUM cold inflation. I suggest you add about 10% to that so you don't have to mess with adjusting inflation when the ambient temp changes.
Don't exceed the rating for the wheels.

For multi axle TT I suggest you run the inflation molded on the tire. This will help decrease the internal structural loads that are trying to tear the tire apart.

Different loading dynamics need different solutions. Most of the published information is based on old single axle TT.

TT owners might want to read THIS post.


General info on Inflation HERE and HERE.
