Update on adjusting my pressure....

Took my 369XL to the scales with a full tank of gas, about 1/4 tank of fresh water and pretty empty waste tanks.

Front: 7,420 pounds
Rear: 14,760 pounds

Dropped the pressure, per the Michelin charts, from the max of 100 psi to 80 psi (cold) to start with. Could have been even lower but took baby steps! Wow, what an improvement in the ride! Drove about 800 miles round trip and felt like a new coach.

I did take a hot pressure reading and they were about 87 psi on all tires. I'll continue to adjust the pressure based on my load moving forward. If you haven't weighed and adjusted the pressure, I highly recommend it!

I'm glad you had the same experience as me. I see people spending a fortune on suspension upgrades while refusing to lower their tire pressure.

All they do is mask the problem.
