I have a new Power Wagon and was wondering if anyone out there knew what the
tire pressure is supposed to be.
Normally tires just say the max pressure but this one does not come right
out and say it. There are 2 lines that say something like "max cold 65 psi"
but what does that mean ??? I checked mine the day it arrived at the dealer
(on the way home) and they were all 40 psi and the tires seem very firm.
I am towing a 27 ft travel trailer all the way from Alberta to Southern
California and back and I want to be correct on my tire pressures.
I don't feel confident asking the dealer. They will just tell me what they
"think" and not what they KNOW.
Any other PW owners or tire experts out that know?
And if you look at the packet with the owner's guide (gasp), there is
probably a tri-fold pamphlet that tells you what the tire pressures are for
unladen (2 passengers and 200 lbs of stuff) or laden (towing or fully
loaded) driving conditions.
THe recommand pressures are for when vehical is operated at maximum
load capacity. If this is a 3/4 ton and you are not full loaded, you
can get by just fine with 45 to 50 PSI and you never need more than
50PSI up front unless you hang a snow plow on it but you will need to
raise rear pressure if you are loaded to the the max. Lower pressure
will help ride a bit.
