I've always been advised by friends in the tire business to run them at max pressure. Too low pressure allows heat to build up quickly and cause tread separating and excess wear. The tires on most campers seem to be "just enough" to get the job done and running them at reduced pressure also reduces the already slim safety margin.

I check mine before each outing and air them up to the max. (50 PSI) as others have mentioned.

Got it. Thanks. I carry a compressor with me for use when off roading. I'll simply get in the practice of topping the tires off before a trip.

Until nitrogen is more readily available it isn't worth the effort. I have it in both the trailer and TV and so far don't find it worth the hassle.
