Tire Pressure

Do you use the recommended cold tire pressure on the tire or on the label in the RV?

The label recommends 82 psi the Goodyear tire recommends 100 psi.

Tons of threads on this subject.

You will mainly get one of these answers:

1 - use max cold PSI on tires and don't worry about varying coach weights (assuming your tires are correct load range for your coach). But your ride may be a little stiffer.

2 - weigh your coach fully loaded and adjust pressure according to tire manufacturers weight/load charts. Do not trust the sticker to be correct which uses assumed weights.

Do your own research and decide for yourself what works for you.

You can't run anything lower than 80 psi per Goodyear. The 110 psi rating is max to achieve max load carrying capability. The 82 psi that is on the sticker is based on the axle rating I believe. I like a little bit of a safety margin and we air up to 85 psi. Just do go under 80 psi.
