Proper tire pressure for my 28' FC?

Can't find the info. Does anyone know what it should be or where I can find the info? The tires are Marathons. Thanks!

It's written on the sidewall of your tires.

There's also an aluminum plackard or tag on the road side front of your trailer that has the tire size and air pressure on it.

If they are on a late model 28', and Goodyear Marathons, I'd almost bet they are supposed to be at 65psi.

If they're Goodyear Marathon ST 225/75R15, you can check this document for their suggestions: The Inflation Loading - Goodyear RV

Based on what we read here in the forums we always used to run 65 PSI cold. Then last March we and our tires met the Mojave Desert. Let's just say we're now more flexible in our thinking on trailer tire cold pressure. That's all we'll say about it, because otherwise we'll be accused of putting kittens, children and puppies at risk every time we get on the road.

Oh, and there are roughly a million threads here on tire pressure. Use the search function and you'll find plenty of stuff to read on the subject.

Full information always helps. Year of the 28FC. Size of tires. And the max pressure is required to be on the tires unless it has been worn off. In which case replace the tires. Or the tires were mounted with the normal sidewall to the inside.

Crap, I need new glasses. 65 psi written right under the word Marathon. Sorry for the dumb question.

Well, I mean - it's PUPPIES for cryin out loud! 🐕😃

Now really - you posted a link to a document that basically says don't under inflate - ever. Were you risking the lives of puppies in the desert?

After talking to a Goodyear dealer about what seemed to be going on with our tires, yes we did. Starting at 65 cold in the desert led to significant hyperinflation out there. Our current approach is working for us. Your mileage may vary, I'm not telling you to do the same, blah, blah, blah. We are generally well under max weight anyways, as were not full timers, and we pack light.

Probably makes sense in desert heat but (required legal disclaimer) I'm not a tire engineer, I love puppies, etc 😃
