Travelworld suggested I had my tyre pressures at 75psi all round (except the spare which after there pre delivery inspection was only 10psi:eek:) When I was at Duncan's Place he got some charts out along with tyre guides and worked out EXACTLY what my pressures were, after a bit of calculation he decided to put 80psi in all round. I asked if I would feel the difference and he said I definitely would but the ride might be harder.

Well those 5psi made the ride a tad harder, but the handling was just much better, it held a better line with less of the lifeboat in a storm imitations. Thanks Duncan, it was a good tip that has probably saved me a bit of fuel as well. ::bigsmile:

when i got my mh the tyres were around 55 psi each, when we were in france and loaded up with beer i decided to get them up to 80psi

it took ages with a foot pump and the pump gave out on the 5th wheel

i would recommend an electric pump as using a foot pump is knackering to say the least:whatthe:

:eek: When I first started with RV's (1988 Coachmen Classic), the dealer I bought it from and all the professional recommendations was 65psi. After a double offside blow out? I decided to do some investigation and found out that when loaded the pressure should be between 80 psi and 90 psi. Same with our rear Air bags and 65 psi in the front air bags. :winky:
