I was just trying to let those interested know that mistakes are made, and to use the tire manufacturers inflation recommendation rather than the trailer manufacturers recommendation. I compare this issue to owners of passenger cars / trucks who upgrade, change, or increase size of tires. After the change, the original sticker on the driver's door usually doesn't apply anymore since the tires are different size or ratings. Thanks.
I understand, but in this case one of the certificate violates the law. Failing to report problems to NHTSA (USA) or Transport Canada is one of the contributors to the poor quality many complain about. Even though you changed the tires, one certificate is still wrong. Others may not go to the effort you did and may either overload/underinflate or over-inflate their tires.
Owners changing tire size is not the same thing. The RV mfg is required, by law to apply the proper certificate to the unit and to provide the correct information in the literature. Individual owners have the right to change their vehicle as they wish but this does not absolve the RV manufacturer from following the law.
I know of a number of actions that manufacturers have taken to ensure they comply with the regulations.
I do hope you change your mind and spend the few minutes to report the violation to Trans Canada at the link provided in post #10 by Sgt Schultz.
You may save someone from having a failure or worse.
RE which inflation to follow. It is also a requirement for the RV mfg to identify the proper tire size, Load Range and minimum inflation and not the tire manufacture's as the tire mfg has no idea what vehicle any given tire will be applied to or the needs fo the vehicle. This responsibility is also spelled out in the regulations.
This post will only let a small handful of owners learn of the mistake apparently made by Forest River so there may be dozens, hundreds or even thousands of similarly improperly labeled units on the road.
Please re-consider your decision.
