Ernest,
You would need the weight of your coach at each wheel (preferably). If not, front axle and rear axle weights would suffice. You would then go to Michelins chart to see what pressure they recommend for your weights and tire size. But, as I said, you need to get the weight of your coach.

When i had the 255s I ran 110psi all around. With the 275s I run 105 psi we like the handling and stiffer ride.

I'm surprised that you don't have a "sticker" that tells you the recommended tire pressure attached to your coach.

The tire pressure is dependent on the loaded weight of the coach (coach +fuel,water,passengers,food,holding tanks,propane,lawn chairs, etc,etc.). So the more stuff you put in, the heavier it gets and the tire pressure changes accordingly.
