I suspect this is a used Georgetown and its getting its new set of shoes.

It all depends on the GVW of your Georgetown which should be on the wall behind drivers seat.
It also depends on the manufacturer of the tires.
They should publish a chart online.

Just an example for my Georgetown 378TS which is larger than yours and GVW 22,000 and weighs 20,000 lbs fully loaded and I have Toyo tires 245/75/22.5.
My front axle weight is 6,400 dived over the two tires = 70 psi
My rear dually axle weight is 13,600 divided by 4 tires = 75-80 psi

So you will have to do some homework before you can answer your question.

The only way to get an accurate pressure rating is to weigh your coaches front and rear axles then go the tires manufactures website and check their recommended PSI for your tire size.
I put about 2 - 4 PSI more than want they recommend.
When you are weighing your axles, have them weigh each tire individually as well, so you can balance out your coach when loading for a trip.
