Rv has tires set to close to max 120psi at the moment. I'm weighing on wed, would it be safe for the time being to assume I'm at my max of 17500 for my rear axel and look at that in the Goodyear tire guide and adjust down to say 105 psi which should be good to 18400? 120 just seems way way too high? I was going to set the front for the time being to 105 as well which covers me to 10300. These are much reduced but are still at max recommended for given weight. I will tweak after weighing but based on how we are typically long weekend campers only ,I'm not expecting to be anywhere near the max weights.

Does this seem reasonable and safe?

If I missed it sorry but what tires size do you have. It seems reasonable as far as weights go and if the chart indicates that pressure I would do it. I think your ride and tire wear will be much improved. I think weighing your MH and adjusting the pressure is about the most important maintenance item you can do.

Looks good to me. I think your guess on the weight on the back is close. The front I have no idea. Our Berkshire weighs 11300. But of coarse to different MH's. I always add 500 lbs to cover extras we may have on board like people or Dianna's shopping trips. That keeps me from adjusting the tire pressure to often.
Good luck and be sure to post your weights when you get them

Will do, I appreciate all the advice.

Was letting some air out and dropped the damn valve cap and extender I put on in the front wheel. I think I need to figure out how to remove the versa-liner wheel liner. What a pain in the you know what!

If you are talking about the stainless steel wheel liners, you should have what looks like a lug wrench with one socket on a 'T' handle. If you look at the 'lug nuts' on the wheel liners, you will see 2 that have dimples in them. Those are the 2 lug nuts that need to be removed. Once you remove those, the wheel liner should slide off. It may hang up somewhat on the threads of the studs of the lug nuts you removed, but if you wiggle it somewhat, it should come off.

Damn front valve stems are so short I could barely reach them with my fingers. I crawled under with a magnet and rocked the wheel back and forth with no luck. I'm thinking it has to be trapped between wheel and wheel liner. Not sure where else it could have gone.

I'm going to install the tst 507 flow through tpms on it which ought to bring it out another 1-1.25 inches.

Always an adventure!

Legacy Weight

Well I just got back from getting the coach weighed and I was pleasantly surprised to find myself way below all the max wt.

Coach was weighed full of fuel and def, full propane, 50% full on the fresh water and all of my gear. Myself and a 230lb buddy rode up front with me. Normally have my wife and two kids which are lighter. Also had my jeep wrangler rubicon unlimited in tow with some gear in it as well.

Steer axle - 8020 lb
Drive axle - 15860 lb
Trailer/toad -4600 lb

Total gross weight coach 23,880
Total gross combined wt 28,480
