Oh for sure 40 psi is way
Too low on an E...even unloaded. ..he is running p tho....my point was regardless of tire poor hitch/wdh bar setup will render an otherwise adequate tv unsafe..

Hell 40 psi is unsafe unloaded on an e tire imho

I'm going to have to go against the 40psi is too low and unsafe unloaded. I have always ran 10ply tires aka load range E on my 1/2 tons and unloaded I had to run 35-40psi all the time for tread wear purposes. ALWAYS as soon as I loaded I upped the pressure to 70-80psi. Jmho though.

I dont know off the top of my head the axle weights a 1/2 ton would have...but even then it may be low based on manufacture recommended psi's....

Truck tIre says max is 44psi. I run 36 unloaded and pump them up to 40psi when towing.

That sounds right and I know tires are not in the budget right now but when they are make sure to get load range E tires and you will notice a huge difference

New tow vehicle

I noticed my trailer towed better with it loaded with our stuff in it vs towing it home empty. Your experience might vary.

Got the ball height adjusted and pumped up the tires to 42psi (max is 44) for a trip back to the dealer for warranty work. I'll see how it tows.

Ok... And wow!... What a difference. The truck and trailer feel like one. I never thought 1.5 " lower on the ball and full psi on the tires could make such an impact. Now I know we made the right choices in the new TV and TT.

Oh and the Ecobeast rocks!
