29KSWS Tires

Just got a newly delivered 29KSWS and checked the "D" rated tire pressures when I got it home and found front axle tires at 50 PSI, rear axle tires at 65 PSI. Label on Trailer said 65 PSI on both axles.

Why would the factory put the front axle tires 50 PSI instead of what the label called for? (double checked and all tires are D rated)

I read on an old post that having the front axle pressure lower had some benefit but didn't say why.

I doubt the 'factory' ever checks them.
The axles/frames are stacked by the hundreds/thousands when received from Lippert and they are brought in and placed under the rig during assembly. There is no one checking pressures there.

The BIGGER question is why didn't your DEALER check them?
Checking things like that is part of the PDI they do and while checking tire pressures is pretty basic R/V 101, it is an important thing to check.
Wonder what else they didn't check?
