Thor Outlaw 29H tires...

Hi Guys!
I know that this has been discussed before in here (somewhere!).
I'm such a newbie, that I can't find it.
I've been kicking through the electronic manual for my Outlaw, and I can't find any information on what the tire pressures should be set at.
Can anyone give me an idea of where I should start with them?
Thanks!

Tire pressures are on the Ford VIN sticker by the drivers left elbow and repeated on the Thor vehicle sticker on the left side of the drivers compartment. Another sticker on the lower right of the entrance door has the tire pressure listed. Of course this is for my class A built in plant 750. I would assume that coaches built in plant 650 would have the same stickers in approximately the same place.

Your PDI should have included checking the tire pressures.

using the stickers or information on the coach is probably not applicable, it's showing 'max' pressures, not what you should be using for your actual weight, including your 'stuff' and people on board.

Goodyear and others have this info on their websites - use your front axle weight, and rear axle weights, to determine the front and rear tire pressures - more than likely they won't be the same, and will be much less than the 'max' printed on your stickers or tires themselves.

a CAT scale at any truck stop is an easy and cheap method to weigh your coach, about $8 maybe. Have 3/4 tank of fuel, 3/4 tank of water, and everyone that normally travels on-board so that you get a 'real world' weight for each axle.

I run 95 on fronts, and 90 on the rears. My coach also rides much smoother with the correct tire pressures.

Thanks, guys!
This is a real paradigm-shift for me.
My Can Am Spyder runs 21 psi in the front tires, and only 23 psi out back...
I'm going to need to get a new tire gauge, and probably a new compressor also!

air compressor

This post reminded me I found a great compressor last week- worked great on the RV tires to 84lbs.... You can set it and auto stops as well. Lets see how long it lasts- but price is right at 50 bucks!

He asked for a place to start. The manufacturers stickers are the place to start until you can get it weighed.
