    Hi, new to this site and almost new to motorhoming- so - is there anyone out there who can give me the correct tyre pressures for a Chausson Flash 08 on a Fiat chassis? I have spent half a day on the PC, hours with my head in the manual and still have no idea.
    The plate on the cab door shut gives 72.3 psi front - 79.5 psi rear.
    The actual tyres give inflation as, not to exceed 69 psi ?
    Everyone on the various web sites I viewed says you must ignore the manufacturer's plate on the door shut.
    The closest result I managed to ascertain was:-
    Take your wagon to a weighbridge.
    Weigh front and rear axles.
    With said weights to hand, contact tyre manufacturer and ask what pressures should be used.
    At this time I have Pirelli Chrono on the back and Maxmiler EX on the front. Both are 215/70.R15 C.
    My thought process was:- someone out there must have knowledge of the correct pressures for both loaded and unloaded conditions.
    Any help gratefully received.

    You should contact the tyre manufacturers.. give them the axle weights and they will give you the pressures..
    Continental are good at this ... not sure about your tyres sorry

    If it's any help, we have a Flash 10 which is up to 3.5T we weighed front and back axels, spoke to Continental and they advised 3.3 Bar front and back. We normally run them at 3.5B which gives a nice ride.
