Another tire question

I know this has probably been asked and I have read a lot of threads on tire pressures. But here goes so be nice!

On my cedar creek 36B4 the tire placard says I should be running 80psi for my
Goodyear G614 RST LT235/85R/16G, since I got it in 2012 my dealer told me to run my tires at the max psi of 110. Which I have been doing. However, it seems that might be too much. All our stuff keeps bouncing around and one of our wall boards keeps popping out. So maybe I should be running the lower psi for a less harsh ride?
Thoughts from the experts would be greatly appreciated.

I would run them at the max PSI that is shown on the tire wall. This pressure should be set when the tire is cold.

Underinflated tires cause blowouts (or whatever the real name is). Inflate to max pressure.

This sounds like an unintended consequence of a major tire upgrade. The harder tires likely transfer more jolts to the camper.

I'd run max pressure (maybe a little less- like 100psi) but would also add shocks to the camper to ease the road impacts from being transferred so harshly.

Agree with what the other folks have said and think the addition of shocks on the larger trailers is a great idea

Be aware that the addition of shocks will make the trailer bounce more when walking around inside.

Not for me it didn't - I found no difference before and after.

Check the manufacturer's psi load requirement. Do you know your trailer weight? They say you can drop down to the load requirement, but myself I disagree no matter what they say, I run at the stamp CP PSI. I agree underinflated tires cause the major problem.. PS: by the way if your sticker says 80 PSI for that exact tire your should be okay. The big problem is when people buy new tires, THEN THE DILEMMAS.

And where do you get this information? Shocks neither add nor subtract to trailer bounce when the trailer is not moving. Voice of experience!
