Inflation decal

Just noticed this afternoon that on our new Crusader 270 RET, the inflation decal for the correct tire pressures is not correct. The tire and wheel combination shown is for a smaller tire and wheel than what is actually installed on the coach. We have 16" Optional Wheels and tires, so what would be the correct tire pressures?

Check the side of the tire for the correct pressure. I never trust those stickers. I had a truck once where they put on the wrong one too.

Do you run right at the number on the sidewall? My tires say 50psi cold, but I never run my tow vehicle at full pressure so wasn't sure on the trailer.

You should run your tires at max pressure to achieve the full weight carrying capacity. fill them when they are cold, have not been heated up by driving, to 50 psi. Your truck tires should be the same method.but if you have light truck tires you will fill the rear to 80psi and the front to 50 or 60psi

Sidewalls

The Sidewall Pressure says 80 PSI Cold Max....I assume that is what I should run..My friend that lives in Michigan received a new decal from Forest River to place on his Crusader 270..no doubt they will send me one...right now 80 psi is probably close to be correct..

That is not really true as LT tires come in LR C, D and E. The load range E tires are the only ones that are rated for 80psi

I believe my LT tires are D range and rated for 50 PSI. When Les Schwab put them on the rig they inflated them to 33. After I got the trailer they said they'd run them at 45 when towing.
