We have had our 36FB for over a year now and really love it. We have probably put 10,000 miles on it.

I blindly assumed the factory inflated our G614 RSTsproperly.They looked good and sounded good so I blindly assumed all was well. I didn't bother to check the pressure until today (my bad!) and found that they were all sitting at 70 PSI instead of the recommended 110 PSI.

Has anyone else experienced the same... Do you supposethe factory underinflates the tires for a softer ride (like automobile manufacturers do?)

Do I understand correctly that the proper pressure is, in fact, 110 PSI.

Those 14 ply tires don't flex much. I think they look the same without air

The tires say max pressure 110 psi.

You can go by the load range chart from Goodyear if you know what the weight is on your axles. 70 sounds a little light. Edited by: atom ant

Our 36RL was delivered last April with 75 to 80 Lbs in the 614s, put in 110 before leaving the dealers lot. My guess is that since the OEM Marathons take 80 Lbs, the factory just puts 80 in everything without checking which tires are on the unit.

I think your are correct that they just put the same pressure in all the tire irregardless of what type tire is installed.



I asked my dealer about the pressure and the service manager said they should be at 110 psi so that is where I keep them. I carry a compressor and pressure guage with me and try to check each time before we move.
