Airedale I wasn't questioning your knowledge of tires. It is helpful to know what you have for an RV when we are having a conversation. Almost all the folks on the forum put there brand and model in there signature line. If you don't want to for whatever reason then don't but why would you get upset when asked. I didn't mean anything by it.
As for the info you supplied I will have to look it over better before I comment further.

Checking post history will typically find a clue. Typically

Tire pressure

Airedale I have read through the info you provided. Thank you for it. The info you provided states and I wil put this in my own words and forgive me as I'm not a engineer or all that educated. This is how I understand the process of adjusting tire psi to match the load that they carry on a class A Moho.
First weight your Moho preferably getting a 4 point weight. Determine your heaviest wheel per Axel and check the manufacture chart to determine the proper inflation. I suggest adding a safety margin to the weight to insure that if you have guest or have a temporary extra cargo. I add two hundred pounds and have done that on advice of tire dealers and other Class A owners. Tires should be inflated before travel and I do so before the sun can warm them.
Everything I have read says I'm doing this correctly including the info you provided.
I agree that the min and maximum psi as listed in the charts provided by the manufacture should be followed.
If I am incorrect on this info let me know. This info is to important to have any misunderstanding as everyone's safety depends on it.

This is probably one of the best tools for tire inflation pressures because it doesn't leave out the most important step which is to never use less tire pressure than what is recommended on the vehicle's certification label.

It's important to remember that the vehicle manufacturer was required to build in some reserve load capacity with the OE tires. Failing to do that by inflating to the load carried is, in itself, an unsafe practice.

Well, now I am really confused.
Airdale just agreed with everything that others have said on this thread.

Good I thought it was just me. Nothing like confusing the heck out of new owners and then disappearing.
My advice is to get a tire guide for your tire. The Moho should have come with one and follow it.
