That will depend on several factors, the tires age, altitude, the mileage, have you bumped a curb or hit a pot hole and stressed the tire.

If the tire sidewalls say max 50 psi then I would inflate them to 50 psi. On the sidewall it will also tell you the load range and the max weight that the tires can carry and that maximum is based on the cold inflation pressure being at 50 psi. Under inflation can cause heat and in the simplest terms heat is bad. A tire failure can be very dangerous and can cause lots of collateral damage to your rig. Since you are also in Winnipeg you can send me a message if you wish and I'll get in touch and try to give you some more info. I learned a long time ago to NOT mess with tires.


Learn from the mistakes of others; you won't live long enough to make them all yourself.


Cheers &

Not sure I agree with all who recommend inflating to max. printed on the sidewall. Many tire manufacturers have inflation charts online. The load range E tires on my 9000 lb. trailer are good for up to 70 psi but the inflation chart recommends 55 with that load.

I have a Coachmen Prism. The tag on the door advises 61 PSI front and rear, including the rear duals.
When I original got it new from the dealer they were inflated close to 70 PSI. I figured they must know what they are doing (silly me).
What do you advise?

How To Set the Tire Pressure in Your RV
The procedure for setting the recommended inflation pressures for motorized vehicles is not the same as the procedures for RV trailer axles.

Most RV trailers are equipped with Special Trailer (ST) tires. Their manufacturers support the use of maximum sidewall pressures. The RV trailer manufacturers seem to agree as that's also what they normally recommend.

Airdale

On edit: The tire industry term "recommended tire inflation pressure" means correct when set cold as described in tire inflation information.

Try it if you like, but if my tires are a bit low, that one will run hotter than the others

Fonzie, I have a decal on the side of my Rockwood and it states that the tire pressure should be 50 psi but the tires are marked as 65 psi ???????
