Actually it's good for all of your tires. They are all governed by the same regulations and industry standards.

The recommended (correct) inflation pressures are set by the vehicle manufacturer and are not disputed by tire manufacturers. Your particular inflation pressures can be manipulated (above recommendations) by anyone as long as the OE tire inflation pressures are respected and safety considerations are observed.

Tire load inflation charts are standardized. All are approved by the TRA. Only unique sizes will be different.

Tire pressure

FR cannot recommend tire pressures because they do not know what kind of load anyone's motorhome will be carrying. All they can recommend is the tire pressure for the max load any particular motorhome can carry. This is determined by the axle ratings, engine and transmission. This is why it is best to weigh a motorhome, then determine the air pressure from the load/pressure charts provided by the TIRE manufacturer.

There are tens of thousands of threads on this on multiple forums on the internet.

Tire pressure

Yep. We just simple ex-hard working RV owners here. Living on a fixed income. Comprehension and understanding could be above our pay scale at this point in our lives. (That what some think I guess).

I do think that on a 40' Berk anything from 90 to 100 pounds will work. No matter what your weights are.

Tire pressure

I guess he gave up on us. I read most of what he linked and tried to understand what he was saying. I guess I didn't understand. I don't believe he addressed any question I had other than to get all wound up about me asking what RV he owned. He seems to have a huge amount of knowledge about tires. I wish he would discuss and explain why he thinks we are doing it wrong.
My earlier post was not very nice so I took it down.
