It’s a good idea to check your tire pressure monthly to ensure long life and road stability of your trailer, fifth wheel or motor home. Improperly inflated tires can lead to pre-mature tire and towing/handling issues that could be avoided with the proper air pressure.
Check your manual or door sticker for proper P.S.I. ratings for your specific tires. If you have aftermarket tires or have replaced the originals you’ll need to look on the tire for the proper ratings. Motorhomes with dual wheels on the rear should have flexible valve extensions for the rear inside tires.
All tires have dates of manufacture on them and RV tires last 10 years at best! Do not store your tires in mud!
