Proper tire air pressure Vegas 24.1

I have a question concerning the air pressure, I have a 2016 Vegas 24.1 and on the sticker info it shows 75 PSI front and 80 PSI rear.
I saw in the forum 65 PSI for rear ????

I need to have my wheels torqued, can you tell me what is the psi setting.

Thanks

Many people use the values on the sticker.

To get more precise you can weigh your RV and then use the loading charts given by the tire manufacturer (Here is Michelin's). Typically these charts are where people have derived the lower pressure (I believe I'm also running 70 front, 65 in rear--its hibernating for the winter and I won't be checking for another month or so).

The rears are usually less because of the duallys.

I weighed mine with and without trailer. E-450 chassis I ended up with 77 front, 75 rear.

Here is a copy of the sticker that was on my 2015 Vegas 24.1. Pressure is specified as 65 rear and 75 front. If you didn't weigh, then I'd use what your sticker says.

I weighed all four corners of our 25.2, and the recommended pressures matched the specs on the sticker. If you weigh, be sure to load your rig like you would for travel first, including water, fuel and passengers.
