air pressure

The air pressure in my tires are reading a bit low I think. It's time to fill 'em up. They say max pressure around 100PSI, but I'm a little nervous about going that high. What is everyone running? Is it better to run a little lower? a little high? I'm freaked out about blowing a tire on the road...

There are several threads here about tires and correct pressures.

Short version is:
1) Weigh the RV equipped for camping and travel (full of gas etc) and record the weight on each axle.

2) Inflate each axle's tires to the PSI required to support at least that load factor. Your tire's manufacturer's web site has the correct inflation specs for that weight. It is critical that the tires on each axle be inflated to the same PSI. Front tires can be inflated to a different PSI than the rear tires; but left front can NEVER be different than right front for example.

Here is an example:
