Tire Pressures

My 2015 Rockwood Signature ultralite 5th wheel has a tire sticker which says to inflate tires to 50 psi. The sidewall of the tires says max psi of 50. Does that sound right? Should a tire be inflated to its maximum pressure?

Yes, that's fine. As another example on my 2016 Sunseeker, my rears are also filled to the max, 80 psi. Max pressure gives you the max load capacity.

Yep.

Far to many pitfalls from under inflation.
