Tire Pressure Conflict

The manual for my 1997 Airstream Land Yacht 33 states that the tire pressure should be 65PSI. The tag on the drivers door states that the pressure should be 80PSI. The manual and the tag appear to both be Airstream publications. Both give the tire size as 225/70R19.5. Which one is the correct pressure?

What does the actual tire say? Use this to break the tie!

Good luck,

I think this is a motorhome, not a trailer.

What do the sidewalls of the tire say?

When there is a conflict between the manual and a placard on the vehicle, go with the placard. It has the most current info as of time of production, and the manual may have been printed and revised.

Tire pressure

My placard on 2016 Flying Cloud 19' reads 65 PSI and cold pressure printed on the tires is 65 PSI (max I imagine). Is there any problem with pulling at 65 PSI assuming I keep my cargo load under the recommended level?
