Tire and Air Bag Pressures

Hi folks: What tire pressures do owners of the Land Yachts use - mine is a 26? I run at the pressures printed on the dash label - 90 on duals 80 on fronts regardless of load. A hard ride but 10+ mpg. The previous owner seemed to like a soft ride and there was only 70 psi in all the tires when I bought the rig. I had to replace all four rears 'cos he had wreaked the sidewalls!
More importantly what pressure do people put in their front air bags. I run mine at 90 psi. It certainly helps to make the rig easier to drive. But what is the highest pressure that can be used? The rig still looks slightly nose down at 90 psi - probably because I don't carry much weight.
Any ideas please?
Thanks, Donald

On the classics its 55psi for the fronts, but possibly the ly's are different, i dont know much about them... do they carry the p30 chassis or something different??? and i assume they are the inside coil air bags right??

The front air bags require 55 psi, no more and no less.
