2021 compass 23tw tire pressure

Hello,

The tire pressure on the driver door jam is 70 psi for front tires & 55 psi for
rear. that sure sounds low for rears & The rear valve stems are short
too. My wife thinks , I do not know what she is comparing that to.
Would like to compare to what others with same chassis are doing.


Thanks in advance.

We had this same question on a similar Class C about a month ago. If you don't want to believe the yellow sticker, weigh the rig and look at the inflation/load chart for your tires to see where they need to be for your rig as it is loaded.

Realize, you have twice as many tires on the rear as the from but likely not twice the weight back there. Also the load capacity for the same tires are de-rated (lower capacity) for the same inflation when they are in a Dual rear wheel configuration (due to heat/lack of cooling).

While we are talking about stickers...

My 2020 Compass 23 TW door jamb sticker shows:

Front 67
Rear 62

Does anyone know where the weight sticker is on these rigs, the one that shows how much the rig weighs and what the carrying capacity is?

Generally, near the entrance door.

On my Freedom Elite it was in the passenger side door frame. Know that the sticker “recommended “ tire pressures are for your coach at the maximum weight and win the OE tires. If you are over or under weight or have different tires you should use the published pressure/weight chart for your tires.

On my Thor Siesta which is on a Mercedes Benz Chassis, the front and rear tire pressures are the same at 61 psi per the door sticker.

I found it when I was not looking..

Went for an easy 2-night outing at a local public RV park and found the "missing" yellow CCC sticker when I was unloading the rig. Mine was on the passenger or curbside door! This is for a 2020 23TW and I admit seems lower than I expected...

Glad you found it. You’re right, that’s not much cargo capacity. Pack light!!

I would go with the manufacturer recommendation on the tire pressure for the size tires that are on it. I run mine at 60 with the sticker stating 61 on both the front and rear duals. Remember as they heat up on the road, pressure increases inside the tires.
